    Great if you have someone else supporting you, and this is just supplemental cash.

    I have been working at Webmedx, Inc.

    Pros

    Flexibility. Good mgmt. Good support. Smaller company, less than 500 employees. The QA people are great, and they really know their stuff, even though they are long distance. You can get help anytime you need it.

    Cons

    Lack of structure, low pay. Technical difficulties take time and are not compensated. You really have to know how to run your own computer systems. Foot pedals are expensive, about $100, and you also have to purchase your own expansion software. Of course, all this goes along with being a contract person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More $$ for health care degrees and credentials other than CMT. Recognize the AHIMA certifications and degrees, as well as years of experience.

    I have been working at Webmedx, Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I had a a great supervisor, very laid back and understanding. He did not micromanage.

    Cons

    When available work dwindled, I had to sit at computer waiting for jobs to come in and didn't get paid for this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic! No one is going to sit at a blank computer screen and not get paid for it.

    Good place for experienced disciplined MT/MEs to make money.

    I have been working at Webmedx, Inc.

    Pros

    Stable, sensible company.
    Good platform. High-quality expander provided.
    Stable assigned accounts, no moving people around.
    Good training and technical support, good QA, and a noteworthy lack of bothersome, counterproductive nonsense from the company.
    Pay is on production basis, (not hourly), allowing fast producers to break out of the standard hourly pay ranges.
    Basic line rates PLUS a very good incentive pay plan reward good producers with upper- to high-range employee incomes for this work.
    Company posts detailed production analyses for all MTs (who are anonymous), allowing self evaluation and comparison with others. Very important.
    Emphasis on production of good-quality work.

    NOTE: Advancement to higher positions is not a goal for most doing MT/editor work remotely, but it's among the largest companies in the industry for anyone interested in changing a job to a career.

    Cons

    Pay is on a production basis, not hourly.
    Lower-producing MTs will not benefit much from the incentive pay scale and will find basic line rates pretty average for industry.
    Nonworking benefits, such as paid days off, etc., are just average.
    Standard agreed shifts now being required of most, with set hours and clocking in and out.
    Good portion of fairly difficult dictators. Above-average basic line rates are paid reflecting that, but those without the skill to handle may still have a problem.
    Large company very supportive on work issues but light on stroking and hand-holding.
    Communication about significant events in and out of the company is typically seldom and vague, and almost always comes after, leaving us mostly guessing in the dark.
    Client focus is on regional medical centers, not institutions on the leading edge of medicine (also a plus for people paid on production, though).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep the good incentive plan. It's the key reason for my very satisfied rating. :)

    I have been working at Webmedx, Inc.

    Pros

    Co-workers are enjoyable to work with. Allow for time-off for family issues and things like that. Has a good family type feel.

    Cons

    The pay is on the low end especially for for the IT side. There are hardly any options for growth or moving within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont hire from outside of the company. Promote your current employees and give them a chance. Dont hire someone new on and then promote them after a month only because you used to work with them. Provide a chance to learn other roles and advancement options.
