    I worked at Landmark Transcription part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great account, flexible shift, no micromanagement, always paid on time.

    Cons

    Due to the industry at large, work volume was often low, and this could negatively impact paychecks since earnings are production based.

    Pros

    They never did anything for me.

    Cons

    There was not enough work for 8 hours a day..

    You need to make sure you have enough work for all of the girls you hire.

    Occasionally run out of work, but not very often.

    Keep up the great work. Your company is the best.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules. That is the only pro.

    Cons

    Overstaffing of accounts, horrible communication, highly disorganized, only one person running the entire company, no opportunities for advancement , no vacation time, and no benefits

    Advice to Management

    Stop overstaffing accounts and make sure that your current employees have plenty of work before even considering hiring more staff. Also, add more management staff. Each account should have an account manager assigned so that MTs can have a direct point of contact for their account(s) who is easily accessible to answer any questions. Stop having only one person running the entire company. It's not working. Also, creating account manager positions will open up opportunities for advancement for your employees. You may also want to look into providing your hard working employees with some paid time off and a decent benefits package. If you do these things, you will find that people will stay and you won't have such a high employee turnover rate. All of these issues are the reasons why I left this company. Currently, Landmark is a dead end street.

    I worked at Landmark Transcription full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy platform to use. Not a lot of hassle on the job; allowed to work without interruptions. Decent pay for experience.

    Cons

    One person controlling workflow, therefore not getting to do familiar voices over and over, therefore working hard to obtain line count. Owner is nice but somewhat scattered.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional and on top of benefits and what is affecting your company. Take suggestions from employees as to what would help workflow run better.

    I have been working at Landmark Transcription full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company is extremely good to work for, very flexible, work as much as I want. Treats employees with respect. Always plenty of work.

    Cons

    Have not seen any increase in line rates after 8 months, but hope that will come.

    Advice to Management

    On my particular account give up voice recognition for this hospital I am assigned to, it just is not cost effective.

    I have been working at Landmark Transcription full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexible hours, they work hard to keep you busy at what you do well. Very nice people to deal with. They seem to value their MT employees. I do like the small company atmosphere, and I especially like that they leave you alone to do your work. No micromanaging!

    Cons

    Communication is spotty. I believe they're understaffed in administration, especially in the area of account supervisor. I would also like to see more put into training for new accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication with employees!
