Medical transcription department is no place to be!
Medical transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – April 15, 2016
Unfortunately, the MT industry is not what it used to be. In 2015 I made exactly half what I made in 2007. Not only is MT a tedious, exacting job, but at Patient First your life is in the hands of your team leader. She has complete autonomy to make decisions that impact your productivity and subsequent pay. Not only that, but this job does not prepare you for future work in MT. Since the work consists of clinic notes and not acute care, other companies won't give you a second look. So you better play your cards right and suck up to your team leader, even if her actions reduce your pay, because it will be very difficult to find another job in this (failing) industry.
They allow a 23-hour window for completion of work, rather than an 8-hour shift.
Poor management decisions regarding their choice and training of their team leaders.
