Love this company - want to retire with this company...sm

In Reply to: Would anyone that works for Proscript tell me how they like it and what the accounts are like. Do - Question

Been with them for nearly 2 years now and absolutely love them. I make my living with them - I don't do this for fun money. I think the dictators are pretty decent - you will always have your good and bad ones. You just have to get used to them. I love the account I am on - been with the same one since I started. They are a VERY fair company to work for.

Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.nm.
I love this company
I've been with them since last June and went with them full-time as an MT in September. (Left a supervisory job with another company). Insurance is very good and much better (and cheaper) than my last job. I NEVER have had any problems with No Work except at the usual times like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm on a hospital account, so maybe that's why (as opposed to a clinic-type account).
Me too - I love it AND the company
Yes, same company. I love MDI-FL
It is always very busy. I am happyw with the company

Hard to find a company these days that does not offshore at least some of their work.
I love this company.
I love this company. No pools, assigned accts.  Best support I have had experience with, easy, productive platform.  Paid training.  Not the highest payer but fast platorm and can use Expanders extensively.  Benefits for full time.
The company I love
I love MDI! Great company--wonderful liaison, superb tech support, kind and intelligent QA, no offshoring, respect and decency. They are highly selective in hiring, but if you can get on, you will be happy!
I would love to know which company. You may email me if you wish. sm
Email above.  Thanks.
I love the company - it's great.
Pay is on time, nice people.
Love it there, best company I have ever worked for, NM
I'm not bitter at all. And I love my company and my
job. Just made an objective commentary on how all the cheerleading for this company can strike some as cautionary. And your overreaction still confirms to me that something is fishy with these posts... That does not equate to bitterness, but rather, wisdom...And I never said I believe negative posters but not positives - you're reading a lot more into my simple statement.
I wouldn't say I LOVE my company
but I am satisfied at this point because I am not running out of work, the platform I am on is easy and counts fairly and the dictators are about what you find everywhere -- some hard to nearly impossible, some easy, mostly middle of the road to good.  My pay per line is VERY low for my experience (18 years) but if I stay focused I make a good hourly wage.  QA is very hands-off, but accessible if they are needed.  Did I mention that I don't run out of work?  I have to realize that times have changed and I may never make $30-50 an hour again.  My company is stable, but they off-shore.  One more thing -- I don't run out of work.  :)   Feel free to e-mail.
No not badmouthing company at all -love KS
Just something been going on for just a few days. I thought maybe somebody else out there could shed some light. I work nights so when I have work coming in that was dictated that morning not done and it skips around, thats kinda strange. I dunno maybe somebody assigning at the facility is what I suspect to get those short and horrible dictators out of the way. Really hurting my line count though. Will definitely talk to the lead if it doesn't stop.
would love to know what company you work for now
I love the company too. I have a different primary

account that has been running low, but just when I think I might need a backup account, the primary kicks back in.  I think these smaller companies are the way to go these days. 

Do any of you love the company you work for?

Please let me know if you work for a great place and why you like them.  I currently work for Medware and I'm unhappy.  I have applied at Axolotl, Webmedx, Encompass, SoftScript, eTransPlus, ATSI.  Do you know anything about these companies? 

Any advice is appreciated! :)

Are you saying your misery would love company (LOL)?-nm
I love the one where the MT was bashing a company for not contacting her..

Love my platform...hate the company
I currently work for DSG and love DocQscribe.
I just love this company! I have only great things to say
about them.  Pay on time, very nice and helpful people, excellent company!
I have used it for the past 2 years through another company and love it!! nm
I just went broke because of a company and would love to share their name

We take a job expecting some semblance of constancy. We are not teenagers living at home.

And I have yet to meet an MT who does this for free, as a hobby, 40 hours a week.

Here we are, in the U.S., where insurance is expensive, the economy is mutilated and dirt cheap labor is just across the deep blue sea.

Some whine more than others but this Gourdpainter, I have been reading her for a long time, and from the tone of her posts, she is not a (an?) habitual complainer. She is helpful and considerate in her posts to new MTs and others who have a question.

United we Stand, Divided we Fall.

Just like the coal miners back in Pennsylvania, the company will let you eat coal dust all day long to save themselves the cost of ventilation, and then fight to not have to pay for the medical costs of an aging coal miner with black lung and ashen colored skin. No one made him go down there, I know, I know, but a man has got to feed his family. Work is work, you take what your skills will get you.

Fair enough - Some huge corporation is going to sue someone over a thread on the internet. This is about the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. Have you read message forums elsewhere on here? There are disparaging remarks made about everything under the sun.

Word of mouth travels far and wide, and so does the truth.

So give us a break and let us make enough money to live a respectable life in this job which we do with steadfast dedication if we make it over 3 years.

Kindness reaps kindness. Consideration for the MT - For instance:

Supervisor: Gee Susie, work load is light these days, and your paycheck reflects that. How are you doing? Are you able to make ends meet? How can we remedy this in house or outside of this company so you can have an income you can rely on?

MT: Thank you. I would appreciate that very much. I am down to a few nickels after I pay the bills and am beside myself with worry. The anxiety sends me to MTstars where I vent in hopes of finding others who understand the DREAD AND FEAR I AM EXPERIENCING because I WORK ALONE ALL DAY LONG,without my comrades to take breaks with or have lunch with WHERE THIS TYPE OF VERBAL EXCHANGE WOULD ORDINARILY TAKE PLACE.

Why not call them and ask? I've been with them for 2 years and love it. Best company
I have ever worked for.  There is always plenty of work, pay is decent and on time, and best of all I am treated well.  They offer all kinds of bonuses, continuing education pay, vacation pay, reasonable insurance through Aetna, life insurance.  Am I getting rich off this?  No.  Am I paid reasonably well?  Yes.  Would I recommend Transtech?  Absolutely!
I love the company I work for and I just wanted to share
that with you all so that if you are not happy, realize there is hope out there.  I worked for Healthscribe/Spheris for over 2 years until I found this position.  I am a SE for MDI out of Maryland and I make 10 cents per 65 character line including spaces.  This is a great smaller company that does not offshore.  I am left alone to do my work but I have somebody there if I need any questions answered, etc.  QA is wonderful too.  They didn't dump me into an account full time, they let you ease into your account over a 2 week period doing 5 reports a day so you can work your other job until you are taken off of QA.  I was off QA in a week.  My account is great, the platform is great (Bayscribe), production Expander is user friendly.  For all you unhappy MTs, there is hope out there. 
Glad you love your company. Hope you stay there - LOL
I would love to get a card from my company...and a holiday incentive...

Sounds like you have it pretty good.   I didn't get squat from my company, and there are times when I do not even get a paycheck on time.  If your company is making a profit and able to pay you on time and offer an incentive, and is not owned by some private equity firm that may go under -- you are very lucky.  

In retrospect, I shouldn't have named my company because truly I do love working for them and sho
assume this was just a payroll error. So, that's what I'm thinking until I know better. If I did lose my insurance without any notice, then I would not be a very happy camper and would do what I needed to do. But, in the meantime, they have been great to work for...
I love the company -- great people, good tech support, sm

good benefits.  The pay could be more, but at least there is a production incentive tier that is not too tough to achieve.   Overall, I would say this is probably one of the best places I have ever worked.  If the no work situation continues, I guess I will just have to call them and ask for a secondary.  Everyone in the office has always been very helpful and supportive.   I just get nervous when it is not a holiday or anything and no files are available.  That is just my little thing, I guess.  I still would not hesitate to recommend the company to anyone.


Hope this helps.

GOOD GRIEF -Love my company/account, Hate MedRite! Any help?
I love the company I work for, pay, schedule, account.  It has it all.  But they use MedRite.  This is awful!  Was this actually designed for an MT?  This is complicated, SO much mouse-clicking, and so SLOOOW - I am boring myself to sleep.  Typing is easy and quick but moving from report to report - Good Grief!  Is there anyone who has used this?  Are there any tips you could give me? 
I've been with the company almost 10 years. I know the truth. Hawaii was a company-paid vacation.
They do not offshore. The owner's original company was bought by MQ; started a new company, whic
That's about all I know. I would give them a try. They sounded good!
Glad that's true for you for 8 years. Not true for many. I love the company, but I do run out of
as do many others. Wish I were as fortunate as you.
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
Must be a small company. I have never talked to the owner of the company I work for. sm
He wouldn't have time. Why would someone talk directly to the MTSO? Most do not know (or care) about the details just the big picture.
I hope my company flies under the radar. This is horrible what happens to one company sm
after another on this board.  The owners must have very thick skin.  First TT, then Amphion, now Keystrokes.  No one is safe.  I hope everyone takes all they read with a grain of salt.  I have met a few of the owners of the some of the bigger services, and they are all very nice, including those that own Webmedx, Keystrokes, Execuscribe, Medware, MDI and Transcend.  I hate to think how they feel when they read things on here, even though they all say they don't read the posts here and advise against it.  I don't know how they don't read them; I look just to make sure that no one mentions mine.
Maybe QA made the decision, not the company, and the company managers are not aware of it. sm
I started with a company that did the same thing. When I went to the manager outside of QA, she fixed it right away. Turns out that the QA manager had made a decision to do that and had not told anyone else.

It does make sense to do that though. Find out if it is a few days or longer and base your decision on that.

Can we ask which company or at least which state they're out of?

Unfortunately, I am going to be looking AGAIN due to offshore.
or maybe it's really a good company. Give me a break. If a company isn't talked about sm
on here, good or bad, it's probably too small to matter and does not offer benefits or anything at all.
Ask insider if her company is in position to take on MTs from other company who are familiar
Loyalty has nothing to do with it until you find the company for you. Be loyal to THAT company.
Let me know if you pursue this company. I would like to work for a MN company as an employee?
Let me know! Thanks!
Chasing work from company to company - Have any of you ever watched (sm)

5 year olds learning to play soccer?  The ball is in play and no matter what the coahes say ALL the kids go running for the ball.  Maybe we are like that, masses of us going from company to company in search of work.  This company has a new account BOOM here we go.  Now it is out.  Let's go here. 

Yep, I think it is a big game someone is playing with us.  Not a particularly funny one either. 

Why would you want to work for a company with no QA? Anyways the only company that comes to mind is
I worked for in the past which is Medquist NJ Radiology.
They are not a Fortune 500 company. They are a past INC 500 company. There is a
HUGE difference.

Just FYI ... the article was in the Rochester Business News. It notes that the person charged with everything was the owner's husband, not Linda herself. It was something that was done at the company that he worked for, not Execuscribe. If their biggest client is going to fill-in reports, I am sure they will bounce back and get something else. I doubt they do not know that it is happening. Any MTSO worth her/his salt keeps an ear to the ground AND has enough contact with their accounts to be up-to-date on changes about to happen, good and bad.

Perhaps you should not be so smug and instead focus your energies on figuring out WHY your customers were able to be taken from you. I hardly doubt that a good business person could be an ex-MTSO because of another service. There is too much work out there.

You can' ask a question directly TO a company. About them, yes. The company isn't going to ans
company going to service company or India?
That is a hard thing to be cut back after you are used to that position.  We have a couple of hospitals near here who have turned over all of their work to a Service Company, and one eliminated their department and turned over to India.  I am afraid that the service company may be taking over our work also.  Understand the others kept same pay, but lost most benefits.  Anyone else have this happen to them?
It matters more on the company than the method. Go with a company that does a lot of sm
radiology or it won't matter because you won't have a big check no matter what. Ask them how many radiology accounts they have, if they are overflow or complete department, how long they have had them and do you get a back-up account.

There are very few out there that have good radiology accounts. Stick with the ones that do. I am with Keystrokes for that reason after going with 4 others that kept running out of work.

Small company GREAT COMPANY

Axolotl is a WONDERFUL company with great benefits and competitive pay.  We have maybe 100 MTs but are growing rapidly.

Exactly..company recruiters and/or company owners (sm)
Ditto, Keystrokes is a wonderful company with wonderful people! I love working for Keystrokes!
I am just not making enough money.  They are a great company though, just ask for a back up account.
Meant every company for every MT, not every company for every company. nm
Started small; great company. Rapid growth; not so great company
First year I was there was like heaven. Then the big growth spurt when they hired managers from another company (that I had run away from before because of their bad management) and let them kind of take over. Although I have no proof it was as though I got 'bumped' by these new people when they came in and I lost a good account, good manager, etc. My paycheck went down every month lower and lower, and it became harder and harder to make my minimal lines. Having any kind of advocate was nonexistent.

It depends on you and what kind of MT you are. Seems to me there are pretty much 2 types...

Sports like basketball where you have the pros who play with finesse, and then you have street players who think it is all about physical strength, period. More and more the physical strength is winning but the art of the game gets lost more and more...

As in this country where there are almost 2 sides now, those with intellect and thoughtfulness, and those who think the only way to be strong and be a leader is to beat up everyone who does not agree with you...and force your will on others.

Suffice it to say in my opinion WMX changed its philosophy of the way it treated employees and lost its heart when it grew, and it was literally almost overnight...

If you are a mass producer who has no care of what it takes to make money, if you are a 'street fighter' then it would probably be for you because you WILL have to fight for everything. Fight for the right account, fight for lines, fight to be treated fairly, etc. If you appreciate MTing for the art of MTing or have any kind of joy for the profession, my guess is you will not make it there very long...

This is happening all throughout the what used to be called profession. Seems to happening all through everything these days. Humanity and heart are being pushed down to the bottom...
