    'There's a mentality of no room for the weak. This has to stop' - survey reveals PR's mental health challenge

    The PR industry is making progress in tackling mental ill health, with more employers taking it seriously and more employees seeking help.

    I have been working at Golin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I’ve been here for five years and what initially attracted me to Golin is what continues to keep me here. The creative+ innovated environment and commitment to diversity and inclusion are some of the main reasons why I love coming to work every day. They also have some of the best benefits and flexibility programs in the country! Recently Golin’s managing director, Ginger Porter, has brought tremendous change to our organization creating an even more welcoming environment and elevating our diversity and inclusion efforts. I have seen Golin hire diverse team members who come from all types of backgrounds that have allowed them to develop unique insights and expertise. As a Latina in the workforce, I had always strive to find an employer that embraces the same values and opportunities as I do.

    Cons

    Although we are located in an awesome building, it's a little hard to get to but we manage.
