We have one writer....ME (for an employee count of 80). And no editors for grammar and style, but I use the engineering team for editing for accuracy and completeness.

My jobs have included:

40 writers/20 Destop publishing people - I thought this was ridiculous
4 writers/0 editors - 4 writers was probably too many

Currently, we have 2 technical writers, but the CIO says he doesn't understand why we have technical writers for a company who has no external documentation. So, I am off to a position involving content management/intranet/portal stuff. I am not sure what I think of this yet. It sounds more exciting to me than what I have been doing (Epic stuff).

I know it isn't related, but I am still bitter that I am making 35% less than I was in the "Silicon Hills" of Austin (before I got laid off).

Sometimes kicking myself for not going to law school,
Cheri
