Anyone working for Nuance and liking it??? - sm

Posted: May 02, 2011

So I hear a lot about how there is no work at Nuance now because they are over hiring and that they are a "nightmare" to work for. Is there anyone working there now that likes it and isn't having any problems? 

They told me I would regret leaving. - I never have.

I make a lot more money now.

I've been working there almost a year, and at this point I'm basically sticking to it to get to the 1-year mark and see if I can find work elsewhere, though I'm not exactly hopeful I'll find better. Communication is terrible. They overhire and leave us with no work--then all of a sudden for a month and a half lost everyone and overtime was mandatory every week. Almost completely SR and probably 75% ESL dictators that SR can't understand. Happy I have a job, not really happy with what it turned out to be.

Communication is obviously the key and if you are not getting it - have you emailed the ops manager? We all got an email stating to reach out to the mgr if any questions/issue. I have found her to be always be available. My TL and the Supers under her are always on line and quickly answer my questions. If I was you I would send an email to the mgr - tell her your concerns. I bet you hear back pretty quickly. As for ESL, every hospital and MTSO has them. It's the United States, the melting pot. Not much you can do about that. SRs is the wave of the future and getting better every day. After MTs correct several times the harder dictator reports actually start looking quite good!

I wish it were a matter of just going through bad reports with my ESL dictators a few times and them getting easier, but it is not. I consistently get mangled reports with similar errors and have to type many SR reports from the same doctors by hand almost entirely. I would not mind if these came through as regular transcription jobs, but as it is I get half pay for doing full reports, and it happens regularly enough throughout the night that it seriously affects my line rate and pay.

It sounds like you got lucky in regards to your management. I rarely get responses to any e-mails, and if I do my questions are not answered. It took me four months to try to resolve a pay issue, and e-mailing my manager, her manager, the HR manager, and the pay manager did very little good. I have been left hanging for tech support multiple times also, and e-mails get "lost" frequently.

Doctors Not Liking This Either

My girlfriend told her internist about our plight and the doctor said that they were actually forbidden to use a transcription service and to do it themselves instead.  She hates it and would rather have a transcriptionist do it because they are so good at what they do!   I don't understand why they would be forbidden to use a transcriptionist. Anyone care to guess why?  She said the cost was not the reason and would gladly pay and pay and pay!!!! ...

Not Liking Lack Of Direct Deposit.
Mar 06, 2015

The company I work for is decent, as far as MTSOs go. Pay is better than most but still crappy IMO.  The problem is they do not offer direct deposit. Receiving my check is so sporadic with mail service being horrible. Some pay periods I get it 2 days after mailing, other times it may take up to a week. I have bills to pay and really need something that I can depend on being there at regular interval. Really considering going elsewhere if they don't start offering Direct Depos ...

Any Positives Working For Nuance?

Is there anything positive about working for Nuance?  What's it like working on the eScription and Dictaphone ExText platforms?  What are your average line counts on those platforms?  I can average 400+ lph working on a clinic account, but I get to use lots of word expanders and templates, it's all straight typing as well.  I read somewhere they just made cuts in pay, was that across the board and how much of a cut was it?  I read that they start out at 4 ...

Working For Nuance Transcription
Mar 25, 2015

Whoever is even thinking of trying to work for Nuance Transcription, should think again!  They are always running out of work and pay sucks big time! They have a new pay system where you are docked for almost everything! You have to meet 99% quality, which is no problem, as you should be meeting that anyway, but then they check your reports, always short ones and if they find an error, especially a major one, that docks your score way down, which in turn docks you pay, plus they then take y ...

Working For Nuance (minimum Wage)
Sep 27, 2014

25 years ago, I had an hourly wage of $11.50 (before I got into transcription), while the minimum wage was $3.35.  So I was making 3x minimum wage. Fast forward to Nuance today, my salary is $7.25, minimum wage.  (BTW, this is my very first minimum wage job of my entire lifetime, back to when I worked as a teenager in the 1970s).  Plus, the medical benefits are awful, and 25 years ago they were good, along with entirely paid by employer. And, Nuance feels the need to employ an a ...

According to a poster below which has apparently already attended one of the payroll meetings (as the poster posted) for nuance they have decided to keep the incentive part of all of our pay going with an exception that now you have to have over the industry standard of 98% to get a production based incentive. In addition (if this poster is accurate) they have again cut the overall pay from 8 and 4 to 3 3/4 AND 7 1/2. This is nothing but a bunch of crapploa...an MT who is now getting ...
