2. R&D folks are some of the most talented people in the industry
3. I had sufficient opportunity to lear

Cons

1. Poor upper management
2. Sales folk "own" and drive the company (as opposed to the R&D guys)

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Very good company and flexible work hours and trusts employee. Never pushes employee and gives full freedom and respect for employee

    Cons

    Company should implement 360 degree feed back system. Right now Managers are considered gods and their salary always higher than a person with higher experience in technical ladder

    Advice to Management

    Management has very strangely adopting policies towards discouraging experienced employees. I have observed comparisons done with 12 years experienced person with 2 years experienced for guy for unfair reasons

  2. Helpful (1)

    Pros

    The pay scale for technical writers was good in the U.S. compared to other similar companies. There was ample time available for personal emergencies.

    Cons

    The primary consideration for management in the technical writing arena is cost reduction, so U.S. based writers were summarily laid off and the jobs were reopened in India.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to understand the importance of having writers working more closely with the developers whose work is being documented. One, or two, or three time zones of difference allows the overlap to maintain necessary relationships. Twelve time zones of separation doesn't work well for technical documentation.
