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?

What’s a Wieden?

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.

1. It’s easier to go from one FAANG to another as a manager.

2. It’s easier to go from a top agency to a FAANG if you have great work as a mid level-senior.

It’s easier to go to FB, Apple, Netflix and Google from WK. Amazon shouldn’t even be a part of FANG for creatives.
