I'm reluctant to label one genre as harder than the other because so much can vary on a case by case basis (plus if you are working on large Hollywood productions there is a lot of pressure and stress that doesn't exist when you aren't in that white hot spotlight). I've heard people say film is a director's medium, tv is a writer's medium and documentary is an editor's medium and I'd agree with that. I think doc/unscripted certainly requires the editor to be more involved in the producing/writing aspect more than in scripted. I'm starting to see more and more editors with producing and/or writing credits on their docs and not just 'edited by'.

I've also only worked on a handful of small scripted projects so I'm probably not the best one to judge both experiences side by side.
