How difficult is it to change job location if I initially start from Seattle? Recruiter claimed during the interview that it's really easy and there are no time restrictions on changing a team.

    It's pretty easy, just look up jobs internally, have a coffee chat with the manager, a small interview loop with the team, and you're good to go. Most people transfer roles every 18 to 30 months. But you're only eligible for relo packages every two years.

      Small interview loop? So pretty much the same as external candidate? :(

      Is two years a strict requirement? What if I'm close to it?

    Easy but watch out for bad manager and the notorious dev list.

    If and when you decide to transfer, tell your manager and cc HRBP or manger can and will put you on dev list to block your transfer.

      It’s the development list, or even worse you could be placed on PIP/Pivot.
