Technical Writer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Technical Writer?

Technical Writer:
Overall the culture here is great. People are nice, it's a fun place to work, you get lots of different opportunities to work in innovation. The work is tough going though. The main issue I have is the pay is borderline insulting in my department. I'm here for a while now and have never gotten a raise despite very positive end of year reviews. I really don't want to leave but I might have to find better pay elsewhere.
