What is paid time off like at Golin?

Pros

Working at Golin looks good on paper and gets you connections to some big name clients

Cons

We are used the the annual gimmicks you roll out for self-promotion. The Untern program? Silly and pointless but fairly harmless. Unlimited vacation? Nice in theory if only employees were empowered to take advantage of it. Climbing a mountain to save an endangered species? A total waste of time and resource but it gave everyone a good chuckle. But with Have Her Back, you've gone too far. How dare you take a very serious issue and use it for agency promotion when you don't actually follow the standards that you are preaching about? You are in no position to lead a discussion on this matter with your three white male CEOs and your history of protecting and promoting individuals who are guilty of the behavior you wax on about. It's disingenuous, and a real insult to current and former women employees who've been subject to sexual harassment, gender pay disparity and other disadvantages there. So many talented amazing women at all levels have left the agency, been pushed out or not considered for leadership positions, and no one had their backs.

Advice to Management

Take a real stand by cleaning house of the known perpetrators -- you know who they are and they are the first to joke about the initiative and the issue in general. And since you love a bold and brave idea, how about this? Take a look at the pay gap history between current and former men and women employees at the same levels, and give women back-pay to the start of their employment there to make up for it. That would get you the kind of attention you seek, even well beyond the PR trades.

Unlimited vacation?
