    Really talented folks and cool people that make working there worth it.

    I worked at 72andSunny full-time

    Pros

    The team in Amsterdam really strikes a good balance between good work, good leadership, amazing ECD, attention for the people, enough play besides the hard work and generally a great culture. It's a great place to work.

    Cons

    It's a lot of traditional work. Very strategy focused.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Good salary, Amsterdam and the Dutch people living there are really kind, there are some really intelligent people working over here

    Cons

    Amsterdam office. Don't recommend working here. Recruitment will do everything to attract new people but once in they don't care at all about you. HR is not involved at all and don't know what's going on. 72andsunny is really unstable. One day they need tons of new people and the other day they are letting go lots of people. They don't treat their people well and lots of people are looking down to people with different...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and really go for diversity. It feels like a white man's world out there. Think about who to hire or promote to a manager or director job. To be a senior in your job is not the same as to be an actual manager or director who needs to lead a whole team.

    I worked at 72andSunny full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome Office space, great perks (unlimited PTO and don’t have to pay for health insurance), and pays really well. Fast work environment so you are sure to learn a thing or two. Working on building out diversity and inclusion efforts.

    Cons

    Creative work is only ok. Lack of transparency from leadership. Lack of support of the brand group - current president (Jess Monsey) isn’t present or vocal much. Also bonuses sucked.

    Advice to Management

    Spend as much time nurturing the brand group as you do with the creatives. Spend more time coaching senior managers/leaderships on what it means to truly manage/lead/grow a team. Just because a senior manager (ADs and up) is good at their job doesn’t mean they are great examples for junior to mid level staff. Building a culture goes beyond filling the fridge with la croix.

    I worked at 72andSunny full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Amazing offices. Cool perks.

    Cons

    Not What It used to be. There have been many changes, both internally and externally, that have driven high caliber talent to voluntarily leave the company across all departments. In additions, significant lay offices have contributed to a low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Find the passion that made 72 so great and hire leaders who believe in doing so.
