How similar is the world of PR to advertising in terms of work-life balance and culture?

Actually had even less work life balance when I worked at a PR agency. But had better benefits and the corporate culture meant other perks like bonuses.

Found my PR clients expected far more in terms of always-on responses because sometimes they were having crisis situations, but I actually liked the culture in that there was more collaboration and ideas came from everyone. I’ve found more traditional advertising shops to be very siloed between creative/account/media while claiming to be integrated.

I’ve long disliked the term ethics. Definitions of ethics all refer to morals. Morals are very personal and vary a lot from person to person, culture to culture. Law is how we as a society express our preferences and impose rules and restrictions on ourselves. So the question should never be about whether companies can be ethical. What does that mean? One person thinks eating meat is unethical, another thinks it’s perfectly ethical. Companies should focus on complying with the law.

Don't want to be annoying, and don't know what a typical time-frame is.

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
