People always say FAANG but I rarely see mentions of Netflix...is it just because it’s a handy acronym?

I’m voting for the following solution: switch Netflix for tesla. After google converted to alphabet we would only need an R... company to get a perfect acronym: FAAART. Sorry for the childish humor, but I would really appreciate that Acronym all over the financial newspapers.

What does FAANG even stand for?

It’s because it’s much harder to get a job at Netflix.They only take the best of the best (for SWEs at least)

Netflix is a tier or two above FB/ Goog both on terms of difficulty to get in and total comp.

@C3 basic supply demand I believe. Netflix hires the best for each role and only looks at senior candidates. As a result they have way fewer roles open at any point in time. They are also more willing to pay top of the band than FB or Goog. They also ask people to leave for under performing at higher rates than other tech firms. It's a very open and sometimes brutal culture.

My proposed solution is FANTA: Facebook Amazon Netflix Tesla Apple. Might I also suggest WANTA: Walt Disney, Adobe, Nike, Target, American Express. =WANTAFANTA

Without the N it’s a slur. Netflix has lead the way in massive infrastructure automation. I could argue much of how the cloud is shaping out is due to their demands as a customer.

Can’t rearrange to GAAF? Or is there some logic to the ordering of the letters currently?

And Microsoft should be in there so FAAAM

Serious question: I’m 25. It seems like over a dozen people I graduated with are now Product Managers at FAANG companies. Yet every time I look at PM job postings at big tech companies, they almost always require 7+ years of experience, 5 at the least. How are so many people getting PM positions 2-3 years out of school? … as someone who has (unsuccessfully) been trying to break into a FAANG company, it’s quite frustrating to see.

I work directly with executives on a number of issues in their departments.

I wouldn’t be so alarmed if it was just one exec, but this attitude is seemingly permeating the whole group. What is going on, and how would you approach this as an HR professional?
