You are pathetic! I have a great life, loving family, work for a great company.
You might want to fix that.

You really don't have to shout (angry person), but yes you are wrong!!

That is my last word to you!

I will add that getting a great pay check every other Friday from Medware really puts a huge smile on my face.
It's a great company -- lots of work and great pay. sm
Web site is www.mditrans.net.  If you need anymore info, feel free to ask. 
Plus my company is out work and I haven't made my rent yet, so am grouchy!
Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
Great company to work for...
Spheris is a terrific company to work for. They NEVER run out of work. They are extremely helpful. You use their computer set up. Direct deposit. Shifts you want. Need I say more? Oh, yes, the people there are terrific.

Ex-Spheris employee - hope to go back some day.
GREAT company to work for.
Hi, I have been an employee with them for almost one year.  I have NEVER had a late pay day, it is always on time. The work is plentiful.  In fact, for several months they have been BEGGING for extra help to stay in the TAT.  They do have some difficult accounts, many that are ESL dictators,  but once you get them - you get them - and they become like second nature to you.  They have employee status if you make a certain amount of lines every two weeks or you can be IC.  They are very thoughtful and nice people.  I don't believe they offshore, not 100% sure though.  I am happy to have found my home after two other internet company let-downs.  Hope this help.  But, really, you cannot go wrong with FutureNet.  And, their platform is the best!  Easy to work without putting in a lot of time for the demographics, etc.
Great company to work for!
I have worked for them for over six years and they are a wonderful organization to work for - very friendly, excellent benefits and pay, and flexible schedules.  You are paid every two weeks on time, like clockwork.  I would highly recommend them!
anyone else think this is a great company to work for?
From what i can see on the previous discussions, this is a great company to work for sounds like. Does anyone working for them right now think so?
Great company to work for. nm
great company to work for
They do not provide equipment but Dell has excellent deals going on plus financing. You can get a pedal for around $50. Line rates vary dependent upon shift plus bonus quarterly.
They are a great company to work for. sm
Pay is good and ALWAYS on time.  Have been with them for 1-1/2-years and NEVER has it been late or wrong.  They have heavy ESL load but for the most part they are good dictators with the exception of a few, just like anywhere else though.  Their QA is okay - one or two are not that nice but for the most part QA is good.  Workflow people are great!  Supervisors are great!  Had, months back, problems with work running out but not it is fine and has been.  Overall rating: GREAT company!
Great company to work for
I've been there close to a year.  Some of my acct's have a lot of ESL (but they are not bad) and some don't.  Support is good.  ExText is a good platform.  It took me awhile to get my lines, but after a few months, I got in the groove.  Works with Shorthand.  Don't know their pay range.  I've heard different things.  They recently changed their incentive schedule, and it is a lot easier to attain.  New accounts coming on board soon.
Great company to work for....
Anyone looking for a good company....apply at Diskriter they are a great company to work for. 
They are a great company to work for....sm

I have been with them for about 9 months.  They ALWAYS pay early or right on the day.  They always answer your e-mails, IMs, etc.  QA is very good.  They do not dock for errors, blanks, questions sent to QA, etc.  Work was slow around the holidays but other than that there is plenty of work.  I would recommend them.  Their platform is very easy (best I've ever used).  Good luck!!

I work for a great company and NOT BOS
In my experience, I have found to type verbatim.  Not all companies follow BOS guidelines. 
That's a great company you work for. I
sure would take advantage of it if I had the chance. I'm terrible in trying to make macros. I keep trying, but they never work....and to think I took programming years ago and updated my skills 20 years ago, so you would think I could get the hang of it.
Diskriter used to be a great company to work for
but I do not know what happened. They lost a LOT of office staff, as well as transcriptionists, and I am one of them. The management became horrible, the work was either there or not there on days, mandatory overtime, etc. I doubt they have changed. After 5 years I had to let go and move on.
Amphion is a great company to work for!
Great accounts, I have one primary that keeps me busy. The people are great to work with.
Great company and I hear that work will
soon be picking up. I was hired recently, too, and I am willing to wait on some more work just to have the nice people to work for. Also, they pay half of the social security tax, not half of your taxes. But compared to IC deductions, that is a big help.
Oh wow what a great company TT sonds like to work for
Well thats 1 pt for TT, early deposits. What else ya got? Good line counts? Prompt response from management answering all your questions to your satisfaction? Hurry now I need to make a decision soon!
8 cpl for clinic work is great. What company
Softscript is a great company to work for! sm

I have been there a good while.  Pay is on time.  I have plenty of work except through Christmas/New Years.  It was low then.  Some people have negative to say about the company, others have positive.  You are better off judging for yourself really.  Our managers have not changed since last June, so don't know about the 'new management' as they have all been in place since then and since then I have noted nothing but positives within the company.  Hope this helps and no, I do not want any flames just because I happen to like Softscript.

It's a great company with plenty of work!
Pick your own schedule; they'll match current pay rate, tons of work, good-to-great money; nice people. Stuff posted on here is old and from dirtbags who couldn't hack it there!
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...
FC is a great company, very stable, lots of work. sm
The platform is simple and easy to use. You have a choice of transcribing in Word or WP5.1. My only negative is the sound quality. QA is very helpful and responsive. The people are very, very nice. I'm a bit of a perfectionist but still manage to rack up the lines pretty well. Pay is direct deposit, never late, many times early. On a scale of 1-10, I give this company a 9.

I recommend this company to seasoned MTs.

EMTS Great company steady work
Getting new work and accounts are sending more and more work.  Great people to work with. 
I've never clocked in/out, great company to work for.
Small but growing company, great to work for
Really sharp owner, great QA.
I think we must work for the same company. I find it always interesting how they say how great
the workload looks and people are really working hard when the fact is they have overhired and that is why there is no work. Must be DSG right. They are hiring right now.  Cant imagine what they are hiring for.  Hopefully not the acounts that are already out of work all the time. I wonder what kind of turnover rate they have there.
About Diskriter - It's a great company to work for, but why did you post under the MQ question
First Choice Medical is a great company to work for, and I think they are hiring too.
I have been there for over 4 years now. They use WP51 too if you want. Good luck to you.
The same here! I agree. They are a great company but the lack of work drove me away.

Thanks for posting that...Just goes to show that Keystrokes is a great company and will work with yo
I hope it works out for you and you start feeling better soon...
You made some great points here.
MTs do not have to work all night just to have a job. There's nothing wrong with wanting to work certain hours or certain shifts. Besides, my favorite shift is 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., which translates to 4 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the MTSO I work for. There's no need to work 12-15 hour shifts if I can get my required lines plus bonus done in 6-8 hours.

I think the OP is just unhappy and trying to feel superior by dogging other people.
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
Doing great! Made more money in one week at TT than I did in a whole month
at previous job!
TransTech is not being loyal to their MT's, so you have made a great decision

The pay is always on time, but the paycheck continues to dwindle, so makes it easier for TT to pay their MT's, for sure. 

It is so depressing that TT mgmt/lead/sups/tech/in-house clerks, etc. have absolutely no LOW PAYCHECKS. 

They have VERY MUCH OVERHIRED; however, they are losing MT's at about the same rate, but they don't care, because there are newbies that will work for practically nothing to get a start, and all they have to do is make a phone call to TT and they are hired !@!

You made a good choice. The staff is great, program simple. Welcome! nm
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.
Great pay rate on a 55 ccl, great lady to work for and work is not tough. sm

It is all IC work, although you still are expected to give a schedule if you are doing stat coverage.  Only major drawback is the big wait for your first check -- almost a month from the time of your first invoice.


Good luck!  

Axolotl has AWESOME, AFFORDABLE insurance.  Family plan medical and dental costs a little over $300.00 MONTHLY.  They also pay for family plan vision in its entirety.  STD, LTD, 401K with match and flex spending account, great PTO and HOLIDAY pay.  OH and paid downtime in the case you run out of work, which doesn't happen often!!! 
YOG - Lots of work, great office staff, great money. NM
Great company, great boss....

I use to work there.  The dictators on my account were really good.  They use Emdat/Inscribe.  Pay on 1st and 15th by direct deposit.

I worked for a company that sent us something made

in China with their logo on it every year, most of which I've Freecycled or tossed.  I'd rather not get something at all than get something like that.

KS pays me very well and while they aren't perfect, they are a very good company and have lots and lots and lots of work.  That is worth a lot more than a $25 GC at Christmas.  I wouldn't send it back if I were to get one, but a decent pay for the other 11 months is a much better gift. 

How does a company know if you are using a template you made yourself?
I don't think they can, can they?  If the doc dictates an appendectomy and I have the procedure in my Expander and pop it in, how does the company know that?
FOLLOW-UP - Made a decision about best company
Thanks for everyone's answers. I have chosen Company 4 in the QA or Editing area, as the problem nitpickers are being weeded out. I don't want a lot of baggage or to work with a company that frequently runs out of work. Here's my original post, and I hope it is helpful to others. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

I have 15 years inhouse, but we are being outsourced. Several coworkers have gone to work for different nationals, and I am weighing working as an MT vs. QA or editor. I would like advice on what would be best to do or to expect. I have learned the following about several companies, none of which is consistent:

Company 1: QA manager has a BA in Political Science. She runs the department as a manager only. The QA people who are chosen have at least 10 years of experience and appear to be very knowledgeable. Most of them are very helpful and are available around the clock. Most accounts have plenty of work, but a lot of ESL.

Company 2: QA manager has many years in the field and supervises QA people with also many years of experience. They have a separate Document Completion department that does nothing but fill in blanks, but it is managed by a nurse with a Bachelor's degree. They have virtual round-the-clock coverage, and you can call them for an answer or to listen to the job you are working on. They are very helpful and friendly. I hear that MTs frequently run out of work.

Company 3: Not impressed because of favoritism here. A highly qualified QA manager with years of experience, including teaching, was moved to a lateral position after a few days by a power seeker with only 2 years' experience as an MT. After that, most of the QA department either quit or was fired. The new QA director does actual QA herself but does not get along well with everyone. Some of the QA department is helpful and some are not. They also promote some after only a few months with the company regardless of experience, which creates hard feelings among those with more longevity and experience. Very poor coverage at night and on the weekend. Plenty of work on most accounts.

Company 4: Editing and QA is separate. They require 10 years' experience as an Editor and 15 years' experience in QA. The QA and editing managers distribute the work and work as managers only but they are very approachable. The QA people are knowledgeable but most of them feel superior to the MTs. Most of the editors are fine but get frustrated if easy blanks are left and also seem to be too glad to report it, almost like tattling beyond necessity. Plenty of work.

As you can see, these are all very different, and I wonder if I would be better off to just remain an MT. However, I don't want my work screened by someone who is "just starting out" as an MT. I cannot figure out why the standards are so different. If you work for these companies, you know who they are. I just don't know where to turn. Help!

Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
I left them to go with another company using the same platform and I made tons more..
It has to be in their line counting and they must not pay for spaces, headers, or footers even though they claim to. I did not know the difference until I switched company. I was shocked that I made in 2-3 hours what I struggled to make in 8-10 at Focus.. As far as I am concerned, they are a huge rip-off and on top of that, they have their Indian QA people checking your work, and if it does not meet their standards, you pay is docked. It was quite disturbing to say the least.
Great little company..I worked there for a short time, IC, and pay always on time, great owner too!
I had good dictators, they use FTP, and I had a 12-hour window to return the work.
Some not too flattering comments made about this company recently if you search. nm
Yes, the pool to be contacted, should have made that clearer, and yes, MXSecure is the company I'
