Other PhD in large collaborations

Hello! If someone does his PhD working with a large group (CMS or Atlas for example, but even groups with ~ 500 peoples), where your name is far from the top on the author list, no matter how much work you put in that paper, how will they stand out compared to others, when applying for post doc/prof positions? Is it just the recommendation letter that matters at this point?
