    Pros

    Good snacks and good people.

    Cons

    They are proponents of people moving within the company, but then lay off everyone who mentioned an interest in doing so. Don’t be fooled. It’s not a family. Vibes are weird right now. They laid off 60 people in the last two months, then promote two new people to partners and make a bunch of new hires. Check out fishbowl for 72andSunny for more info.

    Advice to Management

    Stop tricking people. Stop being shady.

    Pros

    Too many to name... Free Food Friday, Amazing People, Great Leadership and Genuine People

    Cons

    Culture seemed to not reflect 72's values towards the end of my time there.

    Because of tremendous growth, new hires aren't totally vetted so you end up with some bad culture fits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rocking on. Find the best people for 72's culture. Invest in them and ride the wave.
