Is it easier to 1) go from one FAANG to the FAANG company of your choice? 2) go from a top agency to the FAANG company of your choice? In case that makes no sense: is it easier to go from Amazon to Google or from Wieden to Google?

I don’t know what FAANG means, but I’ve seen agency experience be a plus and I’ve seen too little in-house experience be a minus. For example I’ve worked at W+K. People think that’s a slam dunk for all creative roles, but I’ve been rejected for in-house jobs because I don’t have experience in some of the day to day work, and I “might find it boring.” Overall, depends on the role. If it’s conceptual, they’ll value a creative book. If it’s...email blasts, social posts, technical writing, etc, they’ll value your in-house experience.

It’s the big tech companies: Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google

It’s easier to go from Wieden to Apple than Amazon to Apple. Amazon outsources all their good creative to Droga5 and Lucky Generals so you’re not gonna build much of a book there while Apple in house does a lot of good work.

I really think it depends what team within the brand you’re applying to is.

Hey guys - I work at FAANG right now, and planned on an mba in the next 2-3 years. Have an opportunity with McKinsey as a consultant. Always wanted to work there, but only for a short stint - feel like it will 1) boost my overall profile for an mba application 2) give me the experience I’m looking for before mba because post mba I’d like to focus on my own venture. Also folks at McKinsey - would love to hear what conditions there are for getting an mba sponsored at the firm. Thanks!

I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.
