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

    Pros

    72andSunny has a strong, vibrant culture, and the people you meet there are wonderful.

    People tend to think they're more creative and egalitarian than they really are. It's the kind of place you think, I'm having so much fun here, until you realize that you aren't.

    Pros

    Being surround by some of the most talented and interesting people.

    Cons

    If you look around, most people in leadership at 72 have been here since they were interns. Anyone who spent time at other agencies before 72 has a much harder time moving up the ladder.
