PR/Marcomm Filter: What's it like to work for a PR/Marketing/Ad agency/firm?

I'm currently a jack-of-all trades comm person, working for a small non-profit. I'm considering my next move. I do everything here - copywriting, speechwriting, graphic design, web coding/design, newsletters (print and e-newsletters), annual reports, brochures, one-sheets, you name it. I'm constantly busy, but there's nowhere to go, promotion-wise. My experience doesn't seem to be specific enough for a lot of the corporate-type marcomm jobs out there ("5-7 years experience in the healthcare industry") so I'm considering all my options.
So what do you have to say about the day-to-day life of your average account exec? And where could I go from there?
p.s. I spent 10 years in an editorial role in the broadcast news industry, which is why I'm leaning toward the PR route.
