I heard an interesting "statistic" today about software developers. I was told that the median amount of time that a software developer stays with one company is 18 months. That got me curious about what the median amount of time a technical writer stays with a company. Does anyone know this, and what are the average times the people on this list have worked for one company?

Just curious. As I have said before I have been a technical writer since 2003, stayed a year at a company that basically went to India, did a six month contract, and have been at my present, now "permanent", position since September.
