I think PR deserves to be ranked in the top 10, but not for the reasons the survey suggests. Some of the PR pro's stress comes from a lack of understanding of and appreciation for our profession. A doctor, lawyer or fire fighter may be in more stress-inducing situations day-to-day, but it's commonly acknowledged that they are in stressful industries (in a doc or fireman's case, life or death situations). They benefit from that acknowledgement and are appreciated (except for lawyers, but that's a different story). PR does not benefit from the same understanding or recognition. Therefore what is often strategic, critical work to a business's health is seen as simple, or is mis-assigned. That can certainly lead to stress--especially when it means constantly justifying why you've chosen a strategy or why PR should be "at the table."
