      This company has a lot of negative qualities.

      Pros

      If you can type fast, you can get paid a little bit of money for your time.

      Cons

      The pay is low. Their policies make no sense. The editors like to protect their ranks and are afraid of competition. I've had an editor make more mistakes on my work than I made. When I complained about it, I never heard back from anyone.

      Pros

      Gives the beginner exposure to what general transcription is.

      Cons

      GoTranscript routinely sends emails to their contractors asking them to leave positive reviews on Glassdoor. This practice of padding the reviews is something Glassdoor should review. As far as the work at GoTranscript is: lots of extremely bad audio files from clients who don't know how to do recordings. GoTranscript does not train its contractors. Rules are vague. Occasional feedback is only for negative, written in very poor English, and sometimes sent to the wrong contractor. GoTranscript does not pay PayPal fees, so their abysmally-low pay is cut even further in the transfer. If you live outside the UK, international transfer fees are included in that.

      High Expectations for Poor Quality Audio

      Pros

      You work when you want

      Cons

      Low pay. You spend far too much time on a 10 minute audio file because the quality is horrible, and then they reject it and won't pay you because they assume you didn't even try.
