Hi Punit,

I don't understand the third sentence at all. Are you saying that the
writers within your TW department don't help each other out? Sorry to
hear that! It sounds like a pretty toxic environment for a writer, but I
don't think it's typical. Obviously, if the TWs don't have a healthy
working relationship with each other, it woulkd be much harder to
develop one with the rest of the company.

... But, whatever scenario you may work on just question yourself will
your fellow tech writer colleague be passing all information to at your
will, unless you are 'friends' with him/her. Probably NO. As even in our
own department (if more than two writers are there) we do not favor
consider equally worthy to share our views or provide our help so
