HORRIBLE COMPANY - DISGUESTING - RUDE ADMIN
Worked with them for 6 months. Everything was great until I got a nasty threatening email from the Queen Bee herself (Barbara). She laid into me about formatting issue, especially next page breaks. I fought with them, stating that someone on their end changed my document. I saved the document to my own file and clearly, that mistake that they claimed was not there. My work was manipulated. I sent my saved work compared to the checked work received back and still, Barbara said NOPE!!! you have made the mistake numerous times. I said NO WAY. SOMEONE MANIPULATED MY DOCUMENT (LETTER). She said they are professionals and I said guess what, so am I and clearly, you and your staff like to fire people and change their work production. Barbara also said that customers were complaining about my documents. When asked what the problem was, she couldn't provide me any evidence as to what the problem was. And then, in turn, told me that I was wrong and they were right and that I had no right to see the client's complaints. What a bunch of crap that was!! It's really too bad they let me go. They lost a Law Clerk with over 21 years experience who was willing to put in long hours for them whenever needed. DO NOT APPLY TO THIS COMPANY. All transcriptionists stay away from this company.

Complaint on Complaint
It seems this complaint refers to a person who worked on site for the company. I have worked for this company for 3 years (as an off site, aka, Independent Contractor (IC)) and LOVE IT. So anyone reading this complaint should take that into consideration. However, never understood IC complaints re "do it their way or the highway" as it's very simple to me: just do it their way and get paid. If in the past you always typed, for ex., defendant with a D, but they want it lower case, what's the big deal to just type the dang word in lower case. Also, the longer you work for them, you get faster/paid more as the word list become second nature.

Fired for no reason
This company treats you like dog dirt. We are forced to work by a rule book that violates every single IRS and DOL reg, are employees, yet get nothing for our efforts but criticism and torment by the "wonder" team that run the place. And, if you say anything, you get fired. You can't make any money because of the templates and word lists that take forever to look at. We make less than minimum wage. Attorney owns this company, knows what's going on, turns his head, and deserves to go to jail for his shenanigans. When will somebody investigate or sue?
*** Nepotistic Company Fired Me
After working for SpeakWrite LLC for a few weeks, I quickly realized that the company was run by a *** nepotistic family bent on doing things their way or no way, whether it was appropriate or not, legal or not. The family got away with murder while any other employee had to tiptoe around "the family" for fear of being fired. I got fired after a few months for "being on Twitter while on the job", which was part of my marketing job anyway! I didn't receive a single warning, a single write-up, nothing to let me know that anything I was doing was unacceptable. On Friday, April 8, 2010, I was "let go" in the afternoon (surprisingly) the same week I helped launch their new service (surprise, surprise). Yes, I was looking for a new job, but never did I do it "while on Twitter" or "on company time". Not only was it the most toxic environment to ever work in, but I'm surprised they haven't been sued yet for anything! Bad work practices (probably illegal too), bad firing practices, bad people!!! Don't do business or work with SpeakWrite LLC in Austin Texas... bad!
