LOL Everyone I guess that says something good about a company is upper management.

Posted By: no name (Mary S) not upper management on 2005-09-11

Make sure you get your facts straight before you call me upper management.

If anyone would like to email me, then that is okay with me. I dont know how to add my email addy on here, but if you let me know how I would surely like to email you.

It is a Pakistani company, all upper management are pakistanis.
Ironic though that upper management's SM

salary, perks and bonuses make yours look *cheesy* also. 

Well I guess I should have said good company not job. No I don't expect someone
to just hand me a good one. I am very capable of finding my own jobs. And for your information, I have a good full-time MT job that I have been with for the past 4 years. I'm looking for a part-time job with a good company. Sorry I hit a nerve with you. That is exactly why I have never posted on these boards. Ask a simple question and get snotty answers!!! Have a nice day.
Good company, pay on time direct deposit, work usually plentiful, nice coworkers and management has
always been very nice to me.  Incentive for MT over production goals.
I smell management and, guess what?

We see right through what YOU are going too!  :)

Now, go away.  Please. 

Guess "not funny" is management! nm
Management is good, benefits are good
As with most places, familiarity and building your templates is the key to lines. I never run out of work but, on the other hand, I said in my hiring interview that I had been through a series of good companies but where I was constantly running out of lines and so that was a huge priority for me, and they have honored their promise to keep me in full-time work. Insurance is cheap and good. PTO starts accruing from day 1. Holiday leave comes out of your PTO, but you earn 3 or more weeks a year (based on your lines typed) and they don't insist that you work it. I had Thanksgiving, Christmas eve, and New Year's day off for the 1st time in (seems like) forever! I would say, in all honesty, that the only thing I don't like is that I have to go to another page to check my lines but that takes a few seconds and is more of an inconvenience than anything.
If you aren't management & you're making good
money on VR, then why are you so desperate to attack those who don't want to do VR & try to shove it down their throats? A fellow MT wouldn't do that. They'd simply say they like it & how much they make rather than having a meltdown over other MTs not being thrilled about the switch....
Really bad management. This company will
never tell you the truth about anything. There are much better companies out there and if I were to work for them it would be on a part-time basis only. If you are full-time with them they will hound you to death.
AllHealth in GA - Good company, good equipment, any info about this company? (sm)

What type of work do they have?  Any op reports?  Appreciate any info. 

DSG is a good fit for me, management friendly, pay on time, occasionally running out of work is one
of my biggest complaints, but it is usually not for long, just enough to upset the routine.  Production incentive a plus.  Sound quality depends on the account. 
Which company has the best management/team leaders

Can you give your experience of which companies have the best people in place for their team leader/supervisors, and what you liked about that person/company?  In other words, what set them apart from other places you've worked.  Thanks!

Oh, guess it is good I didn't then:)
Good guess. I'm one of the in-house
MTs that were tossed out.
My guess, your test is either really good or
Gerri, I worked for a company as management that had would hire
a lot of American transcriptionists just to get the ball rolling on new accounts, and little by little would send it over to India. The company would have me send a little bit of work to India, have it QA'd on our side, and send it to the hospital. The better the Indian company got with the account, the less work we would give to the US transcriptionists. The nasty emails from the US transcriptionists got to me after awhile, along with my conscience, and I quit for the company.
Management of any company will make you think it is "just you" having troubles. If you are
company is bad but the Tennessee management team is the worst. Run! -nm
I guess my original point was that it's not all good for all MTs

I was thrilled when KS called me, and I had really high hopes, in large part based on what I read here in this forum.  But my primary account dried up after the docs went to voice, and yet it's still my primary account -- with no work!  There are two of us attached to this account, even though there isn't enough work for one part-timer.  Lately I have been checking the account from 7:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., but there simply isn't anything to do.  The docs are doing their own work.  So why do we even have this account?

I too have a great relationship with my lead.  We talk on the phone every day, we e-mail every day, she regularly requests additional accounts for me, but still the work doesn't come.  It is truly a mystery, but based on some of the other comments on the boards, I'm not alone. 

I've already had two backup accounts fizzle out, and I'm waiting to train on a third -- but I'm only to do overflow and won't have any regular work from the account.

That is great for you that your accounts are steady and reliable, and I would love to be in the same situation.  I expected to be in that situation!  I'm used to 1400-1600 lines per shift.  I have had really good feedback from QA, so my work isn't an issue.  All I am doing is asking for enough work.  I thought that was why I was here.  I can't wait for accounts they hope to get in a week, a month, two months.  I have tried to give KS the benefit of the doubt, rationalizing that the accounts drying up is out of their control, but I need work and my family is counting on me to bring in a paycheck.  I've been waiting for work for five months.  Would you wait that long?

I guess 17 years of ortho exp. isn't good enough for them

Anybody ever hear of a company called Specialized Information Management?
Do they hire at home ICs?
DSG is a great company, pay on time, nice management, incentive, but SM
occasionally work load is an issue depending on shift and account but if you're willing to be flexible, you should be okay.
Thanks.. I really needed to have good family coverage.. I guess MDI is out for me.. nm
But it is okay for YOUR upper managment
to come on this board and bad mouth past employees, offer names to companies, and say half truths. So...I get it now, that is how the show runs, YOUR people can come on and say WHATEVER, but no one else can say anything negative about SHAPIN or it is slandering you? What kind of nerve does Shapin have? This is the most absurd post!!!!!
And I don't have to guess what company..nm

My guess the name of the company is ---
The 'Rajinder Gupta MT Company.'

Or perhaps 'Pramila Singh'?
Or perhaps 'Raja Ramadani'?
I made upper 40s with them 6 years.
My insurance was around $350 a month family coverage. I have been gone from them about a year.

Right upper corner of this screen sm
See where it says SEARCH  -- ENTER transform, will bring up posts
Let me guess, company started with a K?
That is determined by company. I guess
the recruiter does other things within. She/he wouldn't be doing it if it was not part of the job.
are you going to tell us the company or are we supposed to guess?..nm
I guess the real test will be if the adminstrator removes the ad as a scam. They are very good at
looking after us and do try to help us from getting scammed. It also is incredibly sad the because of the state of the our profession when an ad like that does post so many people flock to it. Maybe, it was some kind of sick joke because things like that usually do not exist in our profession. Really gives me a red flag kind of feeling but you never know. Maybe it is a case of a company being started by MTs who have also been where we all are and want to make a difference. We havent' lost our ability to dream, have we??
I am not upper mgmt. I am just a Transhealth employee. They have gotten

a bad wrap on these boards.  I don't know who has done all this, but I can tell you that their current staff (including QA) are the best.  The ESL account is a tough one but you have a good QA staff to help you get to know it and there are samples available for you immediately. 

You may email me and I would be happy to share more. 

Also, their insurance is available the very next month after employment.  If you start on the last day of the month, the insurance is in place the next day.


TT have several levels of coverage; I took the upper tier ($500 ded., 90%). nm
I've made in the upper 40s and low 50s for several years now.
From 2 top nationals. Yes, it is possible.

Can everyone do it? No. Some people are better at it than others. Some can put their headset on, hit that pedal and keep on until it's all done. Others cannot sit still, don't have a very good skill set, are easily distracted or listen to too many complaints by others. Never let others help you decide how to feel about YOUR job.

Some of it will rely on your skill set, your mindset and your self-discipline. Some of it will depend on working for a company that you are comfortable with - comfortable with their set up, how work is divided, their base and incentive pay, etc. If you're upset, you'll not perform as well. If you're unhappy, you'll spend more time being upset than working and being productive.

Very disorganized. Unqualified ppl in upper managment

guess you are an expert on the company I work for??
The more we type, the bigger our so-called incentive. Few lines, less money. Funny how that seems to work!
Sorry you feel that way. I guess it is hard to believe that a company sm

can be so great, but they truly are.  I have been doing medical transcription for over 30 years now, and they are some of the most caring people I have ever had the pleasure to work with.  True, the line rate is not astronomical -- I have definitely made more -- but the benefit package is great, and it is relatively easy to achieve the upper tiers of the incentive.  And the bonuses they offer are really nice.

In these days of companies lying to employees, treating them badly, etc., they do indeed sound too good to be true, but so far my experience has only been a positive one.   However, I have only been there for 2 months now, so I suppose I am still in the honeymoon phase, but I would not hesitate to recmomend them to anyone.

Good luck to you.  Hope you find a company that makes you as happy as I am with TransTech.

I guess you must be happy there since you say it is a great company...
I just had an offer and am thinking of jumping. I work for Q now....any advice?
Yes..it is the same person/company. Guess they moved

Check This out.


There is a lot of negatives in the archives, moving to another state doesn't change that.


YIKES... I guess I knew it sounded to good to be true. I wonder if anyone ever gets sign-on bonuses
at any company. Maybe we should take a survey on who actually gets a sign-on bonus. How depressing is that. Now I'm bummed.
This coming from upper mgmt. Read other posts
No, they kept me with all the layoffs, and my accuracy rate is upper 90s, so not worried about that
Well just imagine being even happier when you contact the company to follow up, and guess what? sm
You actually get the job because you show an avid interest in a job with the company.  On the other hand, you could be just happy to know that you passed the test. 
Does anyone recommend a pretty good company that is good to work for, pay always on time and plenty
of work.  I know that is asking a lot, but just curious?
Strictly IC, good company, hard accounts, good platform.
Good pay, always on time, no direct deposit though.
Is Transcend a good company with a good platform to work on. They are advertising.
Webmedx hires some ICs. Good company. So sorry for your loss. Good luck!
TransTech for many reasons, good pay, stable company, good benefits
and flexible.
I have looked around the last 6 months and have found nothing better. Have turned down numerous jobs, and have finally decided to stay put. The better insurance plans were announced and even moreso than ever, I am staying put, and my paycheck is happy about that because it is getting better every day. Good luck to you.
TransTech upper sent out email for blackout on vacation for several days, so only a grain or 2 jobs

available due to some MT's on vacation *probably looking for job*.  We are TAT up-to-the-minute, so NOTHING to get excited about at TT. 

Same ole grab-it-while-it-is-there workload.  LOW, LOW, LOW.

TransTech is a good company. Debbie is the owner and a good one at that! nm
