There isn’t an expectation of people sticking around in roles at FAANG. Churn is expected and teams and roles change constantly.

What do people transition to?

Depends on what you start as and where you want to end up. Going from sales ops to biz ops is not as much of a stretch as going from finance analyst II to product manager.

Marketing associate but ideally would want to be in s&o or Corp strategy—would it be better to stay in consulting or move internally?
