How to get VISA sponsorship from Google and Facebook in lateral hiring?

Google and Facebook are my dream companies. However, I wish to work in their US campus. I am based out of India. Do Google and Facebook hire from outside US and provide VISA sponsorship? If not does it make sense to come on L1B Visa from another company and then try for them.

    They do. BTW if you come with very high hopes you are going to be disappointed big time.

      They are... But availability of visa is a considerable factor in the transfer process.

      @sarcasticg that's why I said, don't have high hopes. I am not dissuading OP from trying.

      Op...L1 is strictly for internal transfers, which means you have to be already at FB or Google in india to be qualified for their US entities. From what I understand, that is not the case. Or are you already at FB/ Google?

    Switch to Google India and come here on L1. But working on something cool depends on the team, product and your perspective. I was told some grads from Ivy League were given the task to hand mark YouTube videos as offensive or not.

      Google infact pays for internet service in certain cases. I didnt say Google isnt good, but your perception of it is probably exaggerated. Be preped for disappointment once you join

    OP... The easiest route is to find a job in FB or Google India and then move to US on a L1. H1b for this year is over. Even for next year, it is 6 month wait. So find a L1 visa, come to US, get a H1 and then look for your dream companies. I don't know how big of small FB or Google India tech teams are

      For L1, OP need to be employed for at least 1 yr.

      Will it be easier if I move on L1 with Amazon and then try for FB or google once I am in US?

      You can't move on L1. You will need Amazon to file your H1.
