I started at this company about 7 months ago. When I joined, I worked
with the other writers in Marketing. There were 4 of us, and 2
products. We split the work by product, except for some instances when
the larger product needed extra hands. The writers wait for a *working
copy* of the product and then update the manuals that have been updated
with every release for the past nn years. I lobbied for earlier
involvement and that resulted in my position being moved into a
development team. Here I work with the programmers on interface issues
and I begin writing during our meetings. This sort of works, but I also
have so much work now that I have trouble keeping up with the lads.
Also, some of their questions (and mine) have surpassed my knowledge
level. It's a stretch, but if I'm not stretching, I'm outta here.
