    I have been working at Allegis Transcription full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love the flexibility of Allegis. I also love that I am not "assigned" files, as I was with the other companies I've worked with. I log on to whichever queue I'm assigned to for that week, and I get to choose the files I want to work on. If I'm pressed for time, I choose a short audio file. If I have all day, I'll choose a longer audio file to get more page count. They are always looking for ways to make our lives...

    I have been working at Allegis Transcription full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been working with Allegis as an independent contractor for about 2 months now. The onboarding process is thorough and simple and provides the perfect amount of guidance. The videos included in recources are also very helpful and you can look back at them if need be. The coaches and all other staff members are awesome and are very quick to reply to any questions you may have. You also get to choose how much you...

    I have no advice to give to management, as they are already outstanding! They really make you feel welcome and are always there when you need some help. Great job guys!

    I worked at Allegis Transcription full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The only pro I can think about is that you get to work at home but this cannot be your only source of income if you want to, you know, eat.

    Cons

    Where to begin.... Their pay rate may be slightly above average BUT the audio is so consistently terrible (literally 99 files out 100 are terrible) and/or there's a translator, which, of course, wastes time. You don't get more pay for any of this extra time, and on top of it they are RIDICULOUSLY picky! I'm a perfectionist and they're too picky for me! They periodically review your work and they will actually correct...

    I am so sorry that you have had a negative experience with Allegis. At the beginning of the interview process, and throughout our two-week Quality Development Period, we try very hard to be transparent about the type of audio that will be encountered through the use of practice ...

    I have been working at Allegis Transcription full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Transcription is not for everyone and it is not easy work, but if you're serious about it Allegis is the contract to have. The page rate is higher than I have ever experienced (and they pay weekly and always on time), the work abundant, and support staff available and helpful.

    Cons

    Most would say the audio quality but if you've really worked in transcription you'll know that it could be a whole lot worse, and that it is a part of the territory. I'm not going anywhere!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at Allegis Transcription full-time

    Pros

    I've been with Allegis for over two years now. Allegis offers me the ability to work when I want to work. When I was first hired the staff was great and made me welcome.

    Cons

    I would say there are two major cons to working for Allegis. One would be pay scale. They do not offer any wage increases, so whatever you start out with is what you will still makes years from now. Also, like many other companies they have over hired and now have way too many transcriptionists for the current work load which means lots of work holds which means no money and yet, they are still hiring! So what once...

    Advice to Management

    Review wages every so often. I'm sure you as employees of Allegis get pay raises? We are the ones making the money for you to get those pay raises, so what about us? Also, why still hire transcriptionists when you don't even have enough work for your current transcriptionists? Seems nonproductive to me and will lead to very dedicated people, such as myself, finding other work.

    Thanks for your review. Transcriptionists contracting with Allegis may receive page rate increase over time depending upon the amount of time and their consistent production volume. Generally speaking, contract rates are proportionate to customer rates and unfortunately without ...

    Pros

    Work at home, work own hours, easy work, paid on time.

    Cons

    Over hiring, very frequent work holds, low pay, idiotic star ratings.

    Stop over hiring and provide enough work to current contractors.

    September 25, 2017Resources Director

    We work very hard to have the right number of transcriptionists on board. Importantly, the right number has to accommodate both spikes and lulls in work – and this fluctuates up to 20% in both directions. So, holds are a result in a lull of work, and are a requirement in order to ...

    I worked at Allegis Transcription full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of work available, friendly and helpful staff, excellent and open lines of communication, values contractors, consistently pays on time (weekly), competitive per page pay rate.

    Cons

    Audio quality sometimes isn't great and transcriptionists cannot access file to tweak it. No extra pay for rush or very difficult/complex jobs.
