I've seen discussions of the ratio of technical writers to engineers, and
what the idea ratio should be (and the answer, as with all things, seems to
be "it depends").

But have we ever had a discussion of either of the following?

Ratio of technical writers to members of the training department (at my
current gig it is 2 to 1, previous job it was 3 to 2, before that 1 to 1,
tends to be similar staffing levels).

Ratio of technical writers to members of the marketing department? (at my
current gig it is 2 TW to 14 in marketing. I can't say that I've ever
thought to look before now. So I have no idea what is typical.)



What about at your place of employment?
