Horrible but that's been happening industry-wide, a reduction of editorial but an increase of sales and technical.
The last position in publishing that I declined was to find ways of getting rid of people in editorial positions around the country by automating their jobs. I did work a prototype position of that while the world was switching to electronic gathering and distribution which was fun and I was real good at it but I couldn't see myself doing a job of making other lives miserable when they thought to institute that companywide so I just left.
The sad part aside of course from so many losing their livelihoods is that quality declines precipitously. I used to be so proud of the company I once worked for, happy to be there. Got more awards than anyone in my division. Then I watched it turned to crap and left. What a drag, but interesting for me to have experienced that drastic change.
