I'm working at a rather large company with some relatively intricate politics. I have been here for under a year. My manager as well as others I have worked with have expressed that they are extremely happy with the work I have done so far.
In the past two weeks I have heard whispers from several other people in the company that there is a discussion going on between my boss, a manager horizontal to my boss in the business hierarchy, and their parent manager in the hierarchy. The company wants me to the other manager's team, which has had several employees resign or be let go. The work on this other team is absolutely not what I want to do, and if I am placed on this team I will immediately resign and find work elsewhere. The impression I have received from other people in the company is that my boss is fighting to keep me on his team, but the company feels I am a valuable resource and should be moved to the other team as they are lacking resources on that team.
I haven't heard a word from my boss about this, but apparently it is a very poorly kept secret around our part of the company that this is an ongoing discussion. I am currently debating whether I should talk to my boss about this.
On one hand, I am working with very incomplete information. I also am not sure what I can expect to change by speaking to my boss about this, I guess I'm just hoping for some reassurance that I'm not being moved. I am not sure if it is a good idea to tell him I will resign if I am transferred to the other team.
On the other hand, I do feel I have some right to openly discuss things like this with my boss?
Ultimately I'm not sure if this falls under "my business" or not given that I haven't heard any word on the subject from my boss, just rumors from others at the company. Thus I am not sure how it will reflect on me to bring it up with my boss.
