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.
What was your original company that you like better? nm
You know that bought your company so
1 of our fearless leaders did not have to leave TN. True.
If MQ bought the company I work for........
I would quit anyway.
SPI is the company who bought CyMed
Philippines/India/US co. from what I understand
No..it's not the original ad. The poster was just reposting so she could ask who the company was.

What company just bought out Focus? I can't find it now. Thx. 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...
I heard it was to be bought by some company out of the Phillipnes or some such thing.
I heard it was the company that bought their office in India. SPI?
When Transcend bought the company I worked for we were told they did not do IC, just PT/FT... sm
so this is news to me!  Maybe they allow different things for different companies they buy.  I also understood a little while after the merger that all accounts would move over to their platforms, but now I am reading that maybe not all of them did with other mergers.  I am sorry you all are going through this!  I remember how it was thrown on us so quickly too.
thank you for answering. I heard thaat this company bought M-Tec, is this try?...nm
I gave initials in original message and it was deleted because this company
has its own board, even though the only statement was that she formerly worked for _ _. I think that is going way overboard in monitoring and deleting, but then I disagree with a phone calls being monitored, too
Is this really the owner of a company
Wow! You are soooooooooo ghetto and ignorant. I am speechless!
Owner of a company
I agree with you. I would not want the responsility of owning a company or even managing. My dad was in management for 28 years. You are not there to make everyone happy and sometimes people have to be let go. If you cannot keep your end of the deal I would make you move on. Actually I would be a real hard a-- if I were a manager. A lot of it has to do with respect for each other. You need to appreciate what you have. Too many times these days everyone just wants a pay check regardless of anything else. Some people do not take pride in their work or anything else. Every thing is not hunky dorry every single day, either on our side or a manager/company owner's side. It is just not realistic.
and........ the owner of this company
is subcontracting work out for Medware. Medware and herself are one in the same.
I am a company owner
I hire people who can work whenever they want and how much they want and they don't need to tell me, so I don't have a clue about those things. I have work out of turnaround time, but I have no worries because my employees will work whenever they need a little money, so the jobs can just wait on them. Perfect scenario.
From the company owner to the employees
after somebody mistakenly forwarded an email from someone in India to the company employees- then they had to fess up. The person with the email slipup decided to "change jobs" within the company and it went to the pits after that with incompetent managers.
Talking to owner of a company
The reason I would talk to an owner of a company is simply this. If you have gone to the people you are told do and nothing is resolved it is time to go over their heads and elsewhere. When I did this he/she had no idea it was that bad. Now you know why?
Got a news alert today that Spheris bought Vianeta company. nm
The owner of the company I work for says she will never sell but I doubt anyone could
pass up millions if put in front of them. I couldn't, that's for sure. A nice island somewhere with someone to bring me slushy drinks :)
You obviously know nothing about the owner or the company. Many accounts are going to internet base
Long distance is not a big deal with digital connections.
Medical Transcription Service Owner and TTS is a company out of
the reason for the discrepancy has been explained by the owner of the company already - nm
I removed the posts after speaking directly to the owner of the company. If
you have questions or concerns you need to take it up with her.  There is one specific person causing most of this grief.  I have CHOSEN to remove the posts, I was not forced to. 
I think the owner of MT Daily owned a transcription company which was sold SM
to an Indian company, but I may be wrong.
Probably no "real" company name. I got the impression she was a private owner her own small bu
and..probably not a company we would have heard of before anyway. I applied so we shall see.
The person who posted the job ad today is the owner of the company, not the recruiter.
Professional MT Recruiting Services run by a woman named Terri is no longer allowed to recruit on this website.  However, it should be understood the actions of the recruiter should not be held against All American Medical Transcription.

Yes, the original post that started this all was by DK.
I don't know, wish I did. Started with a company
a week or 2 ago. Horrible platform, horrible dictators, and the nastiest office staff in the world. No wonder they need help so bad.
Does the company offshore? nm
Well..I just started doing Radiology for a company and they pay by (sm)
the report. I haven't done a lot of reports yet but today I typed maybe 20 just to get familiar with the platform and they were almost all normal reports with very few lines. So for now I'm glad I'll be paid by the report! 
I left a company when they started doing this.
I was getting all of the crap work and it took about an hour just to get 100 lines. To make things worse, this company didn't even pay for spaces. Needless to say, I left and went to another company. Pooling is never a good thing.
I started my own transcription company
I wanted to change the way this business is going and figured the only way to do it was to start my own company. Best decision I ever made! I wonder why I didn't do it sooner.
Let me guess, company started with a K?
They still offshore. I work for a better company
and they don't offshore.  
They are an offshore company with a front in the US.
Not that company anymore, but yes they do offshore sm
They currently offshore to a company that starts with a D in India. They don't lie about it though, it says right on their website that facilities have the choice and it is the facilities not wanting to pay as much that drove the offshore movement. All of the QA is done domestically though - used to QA it and they did okay, but they still always have plenty of clients not allowing offshore so their is still job security with them. I'm on my own now, but I don't think anything has changed lately since I left last year.
American company - They do not offshore
And probably as stable as anything can be these days.  They are strictly U.S.  Good pay.  Let you set your own schedule and there is plenty of work.  That doesn't mean their clients will not offshore for a cheaper rate at any given time.  Paid training, earn 2 weeks PTO first year, direct deposit, and benefits. Platform is awful but the way they establish templates makes it worth it.  QA is great.  They encourage you to send reports.  I read awful things about them, but found that not to be true at all.  They are a very small company (150 MTs) so you can not expect an HR Department or complete organization but the work is steady and I have found them to be supportive. Three tier pay by skill level.
OP = original poster. The person who started the thread. nm
sorry, I got cut off. She started a new company which is now Golden Isles. nm
You can buy XP from Dell. I started with a different company about 2 months ago and sm
had to buy a new Dell as Vista did not work for them either. Most of the companies do not take Vista. It just doesn't work with everything yet.

Established company, started six years ago. They have
not grown at all through acquisition but rather just plain old fashsioned good business.
First of all, the CEO of Focus is the same Indian guy who started the company... sm

He may have sold out to Nuance in March of 2007, but he still runs the show!  Second of all they are absolutely NOT bringing any accounts whatsoever back to the U.S.  That's just plain fabrication, deceit, lies, BS -- whatever you prefer to call it.  It just ain't true!  They just recently laid off the majority of the American QA staff and have forced the skeleton American crew they have left to go to production.

The lie that they are bringing work back to the U.S. was started and perpetuated in January of this year as a negotiating tactic to get the Indians to continue to work for peanuts instead of giving them more money.  When the Indians called their bluff, they hired a bunch of American QA people only to fire them at the end of April, beginning of May when the Indians caved.

And finally, they are an Indian run company and their QA and MT staff is 80% Indian.  I have the actual figures given to me by the Director of US Operations at Focus.  Focus employs 3800 Indians!  Does that sound like a U.S. company to you?

Oh, and the Director of Recruitment posted that 90% of their operation is in the U.S.!!!!!  He flat out lies.  He also says everyone laid off got a nice severance package.  Total BS!  Half of those laid off had to call the company and scream bloody murder when their checks were deposited as promised.  The other half will be calling tomorrow!

No, Acusis is the company that started in India, and
Oh my gosh yes! I started at a company about 6 months ago,

starting out right out of the gate producing around 2200-2500 lines in 6 hours, best I have EVER done since leaving my local clinic and going with a huge company.  However, it seems that once the honeymoon was over, things started to change and now, on the same dictators, I barely get 1600 lines in a day.  It is a Word-based program and in the beginning I had no problems with the programs opening or typing in them and now they seem to freeze all of the time which, of course, slows my production tremendously.  I cannot figure out if it is my computer or something that they have in the program to keep you from doing over a certain amount in a day, which I am not sure why they would. 


ETP going to offshore methinks. Consulting company
helping them document they could not find MTs in USA.  How is MOSAIC plan working out??
