I've been recently employed in a large company in the IT field. It's my entry job, fresh out of a masters degree, and I am in the first month of my probation period.
The Business Unit I'm in specializes in a particular field (topic X) that I'm not particularly fond of, nor I have a strong academic background on it. However, I joined that team under the (verbal) promise from another manager that I will be moved to Business Unit Y in one or two months.
Assuming that the manager will be true to his world (could be a big assumption, I know) how do I reach out to him to let him know I'm currently working my probation period at the company?
Said manager has stressed out as this should be made unofficially, as being hired in a BU and moving immediately to another could seem disrespectful towards manager X.
I've got the feeling that he doesn't want to discuss this over the company mail system. As shady as it seems, my options right now are hoping to meet him at work or calling him over the phone.
Update: I've checked with HR, and there is no internal policy or limit for BU transfer. Apparantely it's something to be discussed between managers.
