Technical Writer at Writers.PH
in Manila, UT

"Being a tech writer is a hard work, actually. You need to follow all the documentation process and other necessities. Nevertheless, it is quite rewarding and fascinating job. With a vast knowledge about the subject of your interest, you can become an expert."

Technical Writer at DISYS
in Dallas, TX

"Technical writing is a very broad field. In my experience if the company you're working for focuses on usability first and then communicating to audiences life is good. When the company expects for your technical writing to compensate for their crappy product, better look for another job."

Technical Writer at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
in Beverly Hills, CA

"I love the discovery process, working side-by-side with software developers, learning about the cutting edge of technology, actually _building_ something. I find fulfillment in creating documentation that makes those developers look good, and I enjoy devising the narrative for classroom presentations to end-users. The downside: the minute I write the final page, or teach the final class, the CIO points me to the door. Most firms dismiss Technical Writers in an effort to save money. When a new project ramps up, a Technical Writer isn't brought in until the last minute, then expected to ramp up quickly. It compromises consistency, and forces a new Style Guide on each subsequent project. Companies should be advised to maintain at least one Tech Writer for continuity between projects. It would get the job done faster and more efficiently."

Technical Writer at ECMC Group
in Oakdale, MN

"I went from field service to technical support to technical writing. I found the stress level drastically decrease when I started writing. I was left to determine my own priorities as long as the work was performed on time. If someone wanted a document or drawing done in 2 weeks, I usually gave it to them in 2 days. I enjoyed the praise for a job well-done, which I did not get from field service."

Technical Writer at National Medical Care
in Chesterfield, MO

"I love the diversity that comes with being a technical writer. I used to hate going into environments that were very office politic driven. I have not experienced this with NMBS, and that is one of the reasons I enjoy working with them so much."

Technical Writer at Chromalloy
in Mexico, ME

"I love to enter a new a company and be able to learn so much and how to portray that information in the different documents needed. I would be honest, sometimes it is tough to sit all 8 or 9 hours in front of the computer."

Technical Writer at Liberty University
in Hubert, NC

"All technical writers are not the same. The main difference in the type I am is my professional experience. I was able to perform duties as a subject matter expert, technical writer, instructional designer, and production manager. All of the contracts were over a million plus and everyone that I worked on were delivered on time and budget. 100% customer satisfaction."
