Why not? It is either this company, MQ (most of the time) or another company.

Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
MDI-Maryland is an excellent company, pay on time all the time, great line rate.
I left also because I went out and got my own client(s).
They are very nice people.

The only negative I can think of were the e-mails from the owner say work, work, work, we are out of TAT.

Other than that, which is very minor, it was a good experience.
Happens every company at some time or another. I
never complained - just did what I got. Learned to do everything and do it beyond well, but it was a tough road to travel. It will always happen - just human nature. I know lots of other MTs - ex-coworkers - who were always complaining about such. One thing - it never made them get the better work. Just got them labeled as complainers, and they probably got worse work! Just my experience at 30 years in this industry!
Every company has a TAT time for their
reports, if you say you are working a certain schedule, yes they would expect you to work it. They have to schedule employees accordingly to complete their contractural agreements with the facility. So, if you are say you will work 4-6 and then don't they may have a problem getting the work done because they knew you were working and didn't assign anyone else that account.
I worked for the same company the whole time and

just traveled for a year.  I downloaded via FTP site so as long as I had internet access I could work anywhere.  I have direct deposit so I didn't have to worry about that.   My family and I traveled through 34 states and Mexico and I worked the whole time.

Probably not what you were asking, but maybe something you hadn't considered. 

I'd let a company do this to me once only...time to move on. SM
I work for a company who pays bi-monthly. The check is literally in my hands 2-3 days after they receive my invoice (not local either). I worked for a company years ago who made the MTs wait until they received payment from their client. If you tolerate this, you are selling yourself short. Good luck to you. When I had a small MT service in the past, I paid my two subcontractors before I paid myself. There were many times I would have to wait on my physician clients to pay me, however it was unfair to make my subcontractors wait. I can't tell you how many times I had to use the old credit card and then pay it off when I received my paycheck. Being in this position, I have no tolerance for a company not paying on time.
But that's not IC is it? The company suggesting a time I mean.
If there are turn around times can't you work anytime then? I don't know what to suggest, either work weekends when you do not have to or find a new job? But is there true IC anywhere where there is work all the time on your chosen days and times within the TAT. Or are all the companies like this? I'd certainly like to hear feedback on that.
ROI - Good company, pay always on time.
One drawback is scheduling. Although you are an IC, they treat you like an employee. Monitor when you start and end your shift and any breaks you take. If that's not a problem for you, then give them a try.
No. That's a company who won't spend the time it
takes for you to get these talkers down. The test then pretty much says nothing about your actual transcription skills.

In my opinion.

And this time the company bit back, right?
I saw these posts and they were out of line. It was like the OP was trying to pick a fight with them. I hear the OP not saying anything else now, probably for the best. I do not blame the company. There were scads of people on here that seemed to love to join in and bash them. What goes around....
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.
She has had time to frequent these boards with every company SM
she has been with. It is a miracle she has ever gotten anything done.
A company would not go through the expense and time of hiring you only to not
contact you. This smells fishy. It is not the first time you have said this but it does not sound right.
Good company, pay on time, seems like a lot of work. nm
There are times when someone is with a company a very short time but they are obviously sm
management material, especially if they have been management somewhere else in the past. I have never had anyone as a manager and am looking into that but it is difficult to figure out what and how to pay this person, what their duties will be and what kind of hours I need help during. I have had 15 of the same MTs for over 5 years and while they are all good MTs, they either do not want to be or would not make good managers, but someone I hired just 3 weeks ago is someone I am considering based on her experience and what she has proven to me in this short time.

In other industries, it is called the Fast Track to Management or Climbing the Corporate Ladder Quickly. Why should MT be any different?
and all this time I thought they were a decent company!
Guess I was wrong! I almost accepted a position with them 6 months ago when I was changing companies, but ended up accepting a position with another company instead. Now I'm glad I did! I definitely would not want to be a part of a company that treats their MTs this poorly! I hope that this MTs sues them for all that they are worth! What they did is totally illegal!
Not me. I have been with the company for a while but every time they hire they overhire so
obviously that affects all of us when they do this.
I assume we are to time in for this or is this too costly for the company? nm
Full-time MTs, what LD company do you use for work (if LD is required, of course) ?
Who then will hire for part time and is a decent company?(nm)

Good, decent company. Pay on time. Low on work. nm
The company I work for does it, to keep all accounts in TAT, can be frustrating but most of the time
am just happy to have work.  I am not sure, but I think I work for the same company as the previous poster, and I'm going to stick it out because it does seem to be getting better lately as I think the accounts are better covered now.  If I were you, I would ask what the deal is, who knows, they might give you a straight answer or change your accounts if they find out you are unhappy, you don't know until you give it a try.
I worked there for a short time. Wonderful company.
I went and got my own clients, so I couldn't do both. Pay was adequate and on time by direct deposit. I had a teaching hospital, good account, some difficult ESL, some not so difficult. Bayscribe platform is okay, had to get used to it. I personally was not fond of it, but to each their own.

The long distance phone service was not an issue. I used the Verizon unlimited LD and regional plan $49.99 per month.

All-in-all, my experience was good while there. Every company has their ups and downs. It all depends on what your individual needs are and how far out of your comfort zone you want to go.

Good luck!

Has anyone heard of SribeRight and is it a reputable company that will pay on time and have a lot of
work with benefits
but a great post - my company gets bashed all the time too.
Anyone know if Accustat is a good company and pays on time?


Any company not meeting payroll on time is not worth it.
I wouldn't wait around. There is no excuse for them not to meeting payroll once, much less twice.


Anyone know of a good company willing to hire for part-time work?  I'm not familiar with the majority of the companies looking to hire on here.  Thanks !

I am beginning to think that you need a backup company most of the time anymore
because it seems most places just over hire and run you out of work.  I guess you are to be at their beck and call when there is work or no work.  Gets a little old and I am looking at working 2 places to cover this problem.  Gets old and tiresome being on call for someone to snap their fingers. Of course, you realize they have covered their buttinski.
Please name the company and save us the time we might spend applying. nm
I wouldn't waste my time to come here to sing praises of a company. ahh

I come here sometimes to vent and to hopefully keep some other poor person from having to suffer the same bad time.  But I don't come here to slather prasies on some company because they are doing what they profess the are supposed to be doing in the first place.  I'm doing my job - and if they are doing their job - nothing needs to be said. 

I am looking for a company where I can work as an IC for good lph rate part-time...
I am needing to supplement my income, as I am the sole provider for my family due to hubby recovering from illness.  I would like to find a good company with good pay (9-11 cpl), part-time employee status or IC, hopefully providing all necessary equipment.  I have been searching the archives all day and have not come up with any other than Webmedx, but it sounds as if I would be doing mostly ESL to make the higher lph.  I could possibly come up with the PC if I needed to.  I have 8 years acute care experience.  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.  If you don't feel comfortable posting, I have included my e-mail address.  Thanks much in advance for all your help
how is the company? do they pay direct deposit? do they have heavy ESLs? Do they pay on time?


Some company lists have been around a long time, so lots of places
Good company, lots of clinic work, pay on time.
Do you have Time Warner or any Cable Company providers in your area?
That is who I used and I don't have any issues. 
Decent company, good people, pay on time, work low sometimes. nm
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.
Pros and cons with any company - it's a good fit for me, IC status, paychecks on time, most of th
time there is work, friendly staff.
Does anyone know if Precyse Solutions is a good company that pays on time and has plenty
of work?
Several months ago a company called Charts in Time (CIT) hired some MTs off here. Just wondering how
it turned out for those MTs as I turned it down and wondered if I should have taken the job. Thanks.
Even the long time Cymed recruiter jumped and went to another Nashville company.
i'm totally amazed they are still running but i feel an implosion any day now.
Is Keystrokes a big company or small? I am thinking of applying. Time to leave the Q. nm
The sad thing is that I do not even think they would notice if I left. I am a high producer but not very vocal and they seem to have forgotten about me :(
I am only part time but I work for Scan Medical Serv. and another company and I am just asking
if other MTs are seeing their work getting very sparse with this company and if she has lost work or what the problem is. I am thinking of moving on to another job offer if this continues.
Anyone know of a company looking for 13 years experience to work flexible part-time shift
I'm getting my real estate license but still want to keep my transcription job part-time.  I'm looking for a job that will allow me to work about 20 hours a week and still have the flexibility to show a home on the spur of the moment.  Thanks, I would appreciate any info!
Awesome small company! Paid on time every 2 weeks. Plenty of work!
Owner is great. I would recommend this company to anyone who wanted to be paid what they are worth and paid on time!
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'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!
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.
