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!

Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.nm.
Love this company - want to retire with this company...sm
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.
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.
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
Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!
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 too love path & can't find it at home & would love to cross-train into rad in the meantime I do
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.
Does anyone think 41 is too old to go to nursing school. I love MT but I just would love to be a
nurse.  I have such a interist in helping others and the medical world.
Love, love, love DeVenture
Super nice, flexible and just all around nice to work for.
Love, love, love Axolotl
I totally love Axolotl.  Just as A-team said, fantastic benefits.  Yes, strict schedule, but never ever had a problem getting off when I needed to.  I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. 
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.
I would love to know too, I love EXText
Love Bayscribe and love the pay
At 11 cpl I love working for MDI Maryland. Bayscribe is a breeze. The lines build up so quickly. Everything is right there on the page. Sometimes, you have to fill in patient data, but who cares.... you do get paid for it. No holiday or vacation pay as it is an IC position. It beats 8 and 9 cpl any day. IMO
Love, love Archivus
Mind my asking what your line rate is? Do you have to work a schedule? Is their platform good? Anything else?
love/hate MT, mostly love it :)
i've long been dismayed with the direction in which this profession has gone, and i agree with the person who posted that women have accepted substandard wages and/or unfair IC or employment situations. It's very sad to see how, when outsourcing became the norm, women did not adequately negotiate to, you know, pay their bills!!! It seems this has resulted in lots of undercutting and lower line rates for everyone. I see some companies slowly improving and not requiring crazy line counts and hours in exchange for paying into health insurance. i entered this profession as a single female. i married an engineer and was living mighty comfy and cushy and happily doing 4 hours at 11 cpl in the late 90s. didn't have to worry about not having bennies at all. now as a single mom with a young child, i truly struggle. but i do love my work and hold out for my specialty to keep the line count up. still, i see the glaring problems and it's just a shame. if there were an MT union, i'd join in a heartbeat. no time/energy to start one and be some kind of norma rae, though!

Ah, yes, a love/hate thing indeed!

Best to all of you wonderful mts, male and female :)
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!
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
Love it there

Okay, I have read all the posts and have been keeping up with all of this.  I wasn't going to say anything, but some of the naysayers are getting a little nasty.  I think that Transcend is a very good company.  All of their pay rates and incentives, bonuses and benefits are public knowledge on the forum.  It would make it very hard for preferrential treatment to go.  However, I suppose it could happen.  What I don't get is if it is happening to someone, why wouldn't they do something about it instead of putting up with it and complaining to the world about it while they do it? 

Also, there are a ton of posts on here about Transcend from this thread that are not nice about the company and I haven't seen MT Stars pull one single post.  I guess they aren't as biased as some would claim!

I've been with them for almost 6 months, and they are the best! They truly treat their MTs with respect. I would highly recommend them!
love JLG
I have been an MT a long time and JLG so far has been the best company to work for. Work flow is constant, management is great, and so far, I have not run out of work. If I have my way, I will never go outside the house to work again. I cannot imaging having to drive into town everyday with the price of gas right now!!!!
I love my job. Best job I have had. People nice to work for, flexible schedule, no nit-picky QA stuff, like "comma in the wrong place". And great pay. RAH RAH RAH...I didn't even have to take any test. Sent them my resume, the called and hired me.
I love it!
"little control freaks with no experience other than raising a few kids"  ROFL!  Yeah, you have that description down pat. Honestly, with some of the ranting emails we get from team leaders or account supervisors, I'd hate to hear them dealing with their children when they think nobody else is around.  OK, so one person on the team did something wrong, so let's scream at everyone!
I love OSi..but I wonder about this, too
MDI-FL...what is it that you love?
I just got hired by this company and am looking forward to getting started.  It sounds like a great company to call home and that's just what I'm hoping to do.  I really need a fresh start after a bad experience with a few nationals.  They seem to have a lot to offer.  I would love some input from current employees on what to expect.  Is the work volume pretty stable?  Platform user-friendly? Easy to make line counts?  Are most of the dictators pretty good?  Do you they pay every 2 weeks or only on certain dates of the month?  Is pay always on time?  Have the changes over the years been for the better?  Would you say this company is here to stay?  Sorry for all the questions; I'm just hoping this is the last MT I'll work for.  Any info you can provide on the boards or off the boards would be much appreciated!   
You will love it!
