How hard is it for a SWE from Walmart Labs to move to one of the FAANG companies in the Bay Area? What's the best way to seek opportunities at these companies if recruiters aren't reaching out on LinkedIn on their own? Is internal references the only way to go? Asking for a friend.

      Why is that? Is there a crisis internally?

      No , people get bonuses around April. So moves around this time are quite common. @labs is hiring a lot
