Hard to answer this one without being cynical. What I've seen is
that the best writers managed to get out, and secure writing
positions at other companies before the one where they had worked
for five or six years folded, or perhaps just decided to save money
by doing away with frills like tech writing and equipment
maintenance. I've never seen a good interior path, in product
or services companies.

People with 5-6 years of experience in documentation (all types) - what
should be the automatic growth path. Assuming at that point the person maybe
a senior team member or a lead. I believe in Product companies the person
can grow as high as being VP-Documentation Group. But in a services company
what can he expect?

Generally developers with such kind of experience have the option of either
moving into Project Management role or Architect role. Should such an
opportunity be also given to TWs? I know TWs has to show their value, wear
different hats...but can I have some real experiences.
