    Pros

    The jobs are almost always clear and easy to hear. The rate is better than some companies out there.

    Cons

    It's the same problem that always comes with this work, there's either a lot of work or none for a week or so. There's no place like Slack for employees to chat a bit to get to know each other or ask small questions while they're working or even announcements for what the work week will be like. You can go a week or two without any work so you should have another backup job.

    Pros

    Pay is higher than most remote transcription companies today. Work is interesting. Ability to work remotely. Flexible scheduling. Staff is friendly.

    Cons

    Pay is low if you live in the SoCal area. No interaction with owners. Still don't know who I'm actually working for.

    Great company with interesting audio and excellent support.

    Pros

    Daily Transcription has been a very enjoyable company to work with. Signing up for shifts allows for great flexibility and let's you choose which days you work so you shouldn't have to reject any assignments. More often than not, the quality of the audio for projects is very good. The support staff is tremendously helpful. I have reached out to QA for questions on projects and they always respond quickly and are happy to explain anything you may have questions on. While it is true that work is not guaranteed, this will be true for any transcription company, and thus far, I have been able to receive fairly consistent and steady work from Daily Transcription. There are also opportunities for rush work at times, which is a great bonus, as it's a pretty nice bump in pay for those projects.

    Cons

    This is not a con for this company in particular, it is simply a fact that some find as a negative for this type of work. You have to manage your time efficiently and learn how to manage your schedule effectively as you are responsible for signing up for the amount of work you wish to receive on the days you are able to work and completing it on time.

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, one of the biggest challenges about working remotely is to organize both work and personal schedule. Seems easy at first, but it isn't. It takes some times but once is all polished out, it's worth it!

    Pros

    Work can be interesting sometimes. Flexible if you need more time to complete project.

    Cons

    No guarantee on work. Format changes often with no pay increase. Can't turn down difficult files or you receive a hefty penalty.

    Nice compared to other options when you don't have 3+ years experience

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexibility, though no guarantee of work. Pays DECENT especially for beginners at an average of .75/audio minute. (Compared to mills pumping out work for .30/audio minute. Not sure what it says being compared to transcription mills, but there you are.) I think a reason it doesn't pay higher is that some of the income goes to their quality team, which assures they hit a 99% accuracy for customers. I think it's helpful overall but could still pay more. (See: Cons) Team can be a bit lax and the higher ups you're usually in contact with are really kind and accommodating, especially if you need more time. They'll also sometimes email you if they have rush work in house which can have a big bonus! And they might add you to a rush list if they get more.

    Cons

    So many clients have their formats of choice totally different to the standard layout you test with/learn. Makes it harder to adapt to and you don't get paid more for this. Difficulty of audio doesn't matter, only the number of people in it. I could have a 4 person dialogue with non-existent cross talk that pays $1/minute vs a 2 person interview that contains constant cross talk the ENTIRE way through with nonstop overlap paying .80/minute (Thanks for the extra nickel for substantially more difficult work btw). It's rough and you CANNOT reject what you're given or you're booted to the bottom of the work list. (Probably won't get work for a week or two, you do NOT get to choose your work) Speaking of, work is VERY sparse already. It. Is. Dry. Just about every single file is due next day. Only same day is considered 'rush' (or the very next morning in some rarer cases.) While the higher ups are very nice, some of the QA are extremely rude.
