I've noticed that. As a matter of fact, a boss of
mine(*) once mentioned that he planned to sign with a
particular ad agency so that our ads would have good
professional copywriting. I said, "Go ahead, but don't
be surprised if the copywriter who shows up is me.
I freelance for that agency in my spare time."

As my co-worker Dennis Kaliser once said, "The minute
you're on the payroll, they lose all respect for you."

(*) not at my current place of work, of course
