offshore to India, it's OFFSHORE (off shore), not outsource to India.
Do not outsource to India, outsource a small amount to Phillipines.
Does Transcend outsource out of country?
I was told when I was hired that their editing is for VR.  Can anyone confirm or deny this?
offshore overseas.... not outsource .... correct term is offshore.
Work is going to India or some other country. nm
I know for a fact they offshore, what country I don't know.
In an interview a team leader let slip that they offshored and that is was the good stuff that was offshored. 
They outsource to India and..
when the recruiter was asked, she said she didn't know that for sure even though it is posted on their website.  When this was pointed out, I still couldn't get her to admit it.  I turned them down because I prefer straight answers and dont' work for companies who outsource to India.
I know they outsource to India sm

Whatever is not done by a certain point at night the send to India so that it is ready to edit in the morning.  I am surprised they are allowed to advertise for MTs on this site, but they DO outsource and I have this from the current recruiter.  They pay their American MTs pretty well, but on the backs of the outsourced stuff from what I can tell. 

For the record, I had an offer at the end of last year, didn't take it because it is outsourced.  As long as we support this sort of thing it will continue.  The minute we all refuse to work for a place like that, the sooner it all comes home.

So are you saying they don't outsource to India?
How long have you worked for them?
3 of the top 5 are companies who outsource to India
Companies who outsource to India
Include All Type Transcription in the group that outsource to India; they won't tell you up front but if you do QA you will find out immediately; all the work from India have to be 100% re-listened and re-QA'd - I wonder if All Type realizes a profit from this, after all they are paying India and the US MTs (sounds like double your money spending to me)...just my opinion.

All Type management isn't easy to work with, either. The owner hasn't been an MT for over 10 yrs and her right hand has never done transcription; dontcha just love someone who has never transcribed and only worked in our field for less than 5 yrs, telling you that 100 reports (from India MTs) have to be QA'd daily keeping in mind these are re-listened 100% voice to text!!

Sorry for the rambling, evidently I needed to get that off my chest...LoL
They outsource to India. Broken down
a lot of times. Management stinks. Its better now with team leaders, but the top dogs are really low class nasty and payroll person is worst there is. Support from office and from the computer end of it is horrible. And don't count on 9 cpl. My friend and I got stuck at 8.5 and now they will not give raises. Accounts are horrible.

They'll outsource to India. nm.
I refuse to work for pay that low. I'm worth more than that.
Does MDI-FL outsource to India? I saw something a while back on here about MDI-FL MTs
not having enough work to keep them busy because when Transcend took over, the work got outsourced to India.  Is this still the case?
Does Transcent outsource to India? nm
yes, they still OFFSHORE (not outsource), otherwise
Do you mean outsource as in offshore? (NM)
They DO NOT outsource/offshore.
TT does not offshore or outsource
TT has to do whatever Dictaphone-Nuance says to do. It would be great if TT would get their own accounts that Dictaphone-Nuance had no control over.
offshore, not outsource.
Lets see.... they outsource to India, just cut holiday pay..
they change their policy manual so much that there is no way to keep up, the teamleaders are often rude and very sarcastic... I could go on and on.
yeah...if you like the fact that they OUTSOURCE to India..hence their name. nm
Jobs being sent to India - good companies who don't outsource
I've been working for a company for a few years now.  This company has started to remove several job types with greater turnaround times to India from our exiting accounts.  There was not enough work over the holidays to get in all of my hours (I know work is normally slow then), and this trend is still continuing.  We used to have a primary account and a secondary account as a back-up, but now I'm working on at least 5 or 6 accounts just to have enough work to complete my 8-hour shift. 
Would never go back there...do a search (Outsource Offshore too) (nm)
 QA and managers more important than MTs...
How about this? In a nutshell, which companies DO NOT outsource OFFshore?

They have told us they absolutely do not outsource or offshore

E-mail came from big boss explaining trying to clear up rumors saying they do not do this.  I have no reason not to believe them.  They are great people to work for.  No job is perfect, but TT makes me very happy.

outsource to India; not enough work, ran out of constantly; some really nice people, though (nm)
probably because they OUTSOURCE OVERSEAS...perhaps that number is reserved for the India account...?
Good luck to you...
They offshore to India.
MQ is a large company & is most definitely not secure for US MTs. They've already reduced their number of US MTs drastically & are sending more accounts every day to India. Cbay eventually laid off ALL US MT and QA employees. Bigger does not mean more secure. The bottom line is that if a company will stoop to offshoring work to India, they don't care about patient safety or the welfare of their employees. We all have to do what we have to do, and if that means no other choice than working for a company like that, then that's part of it. But there are companies out there who don't offshore, and I feel nothing but resentment for companies that do.
They offshore to India, if that bothers you.
plus I understand they offshore to India...
at least that is what they told me when I interviewed with them a few years ago.
All India, all the time... 99% goes offshore. nm
They offshore...not about abuot India, but definitely to the Phillipines....
ad - "multispeciality clinic" - the acct they offshore to India
Focus doesn't offshore to India, they are an Indian company
that offshores to the U.S.  They have an office front in MA, I think.  
This seems to be pro-offshore board. Messages against offshore often just disappear.
Must be another country, I have not
heard of anything at all like this and I try to catch all news, not just local.
India, Michael. The MT world is going to India. Wonder why? nm
What area of the country are you in?
Wrong Country
They are outsoucing to Trinidad and Guyana, with others coming very quickly.
moving to the country
I'm moving to the country and will not have broadband or DSL available for who knows how long.  I have not been in this situation before and would like to know if any of you know of any companies that do not require either of these - I will have access to dial-up and possibly some sort of high-speed that is brought in by a radio receiver on the top of my house.  It's a good move - just maybe not a good move for an MT - any help with companies that do not require high-speed with cable or dsl would be appreciated. 
and what country are you writing from?
There are plenty of MTs in this country
who WANT to work - and guess what? The work is not as plentiful as it was because of people like you who choose to support the economy of a foreign country rather than your own country. So, when all the US jobs are gone as you stated, it will be YOU who helped it happen, not us.
I understand what you mean, Country Mt,
and I'm sorry that we can't all agree to disagree instead of acting like dogs attacking each other.

It's absolutely ridiculous that grown women feel it necessary to act the way some folks on here do.

Just know you're not alone in your opinion.
Country MT, you need to move - to
You are absolutely right. Also he is from a country
My fault for staying for so long. I also stayed in a relationship which he said was situational stress, and when I got out he thought I should have stayed. I guess that was my fault too... I am going to a woman soon, but I already changed my job to a good one which I know will take care of me. So, I guess I solved problems without a shrink... how to wean off the nerve pills... or not! LOL.
how do you get calls from "all over the country" sm
if you don't advertise or anything? Wow, you must be out of this world!
depends on part of country - I will take pay cut. sm

I'm an MT x10 years, great for growing family.  Now that kids are in school going back for BSN (R.N. plus bachelors combined).  Husband thinks I'm crazy.  I make $55,000+ as an MT because of production + incentive.  I transcribe 300+ lph and have an excellent line rate with a national.

I'm in the midwest, so as a BSN who does not get paid more than RNs here, I will take a huge pay cut, to the order of about $15,000 a year less.  Why am I doing it, because I want to be a nurse practitioner or a P.A. eventually and want to love what I do - that will be more money in the long run too with the higher degree.  I like being an MT, but working from home has turned me into a fat, lazy person who does nothing but type because it's easy money for me since I know the lingo and am well educated, plus I can type fast.

If you want to be a nurse, as another poster said - don't do it for the money, do it because you feel in your heart it is what you are meant to do because it is a very, very demanding job that requires a great deal of knowledge and skill.


Are all of their accounts out of CA or spread across the country? TIA (NM)
Try a board in a third-world country
because it sounds like that is who is left working for them. 
And the jobs will then be shifted to another country.
It will always be about the almighty dollar and companies will always be able to find someone in the world who will outbid American MTs.
