I worked under Marketing in my last job.

It's true that Marketing does indeed value good documentation more
than Development. However, it was also true in this company (a
software vendor) that Marketing was considered "overhead." Development
wasn't. So, when the project schedule went wild, Development was
easily able to justify new hires. Marketing wasn't.

Personally, I prefer being underappreciated to doing the work of three
writers.
