      Pros

      Golin has supported me throughout my career. It's where I've grown professionally . I wouldn't be at a stage in my career without their support.

      Cons

      We can sometimes move too quickly. It could be good to think things through more before acting. Often done with the best intentions and it is the nature of the business.

      Pros

      Worked within a great team and with some lovely colleagues, benefits were great - including genuinely unlimited holiday! Lots of employee events and a very social environment.

      Cons

      Poor client management and a lack of understanding and integration between PR and the digital team. Culture of late nights and overworking in PR. No transparency about how the business was doing e.g. profit and revenue from senior management.
