I'm currently working at a company as a software engineer and I've been looking for internal job opportunities for personal growth and change of domain.
I've heard news of a new role (first of its kind in the company) that might be introduced and showed my interest in it to the people in question as my skills are a great fit for the role, the role is not in the HR system and hasn't been approved officially but there is a current need for some of the work to be done.
The relevant leads (including mine) got together to discuss this role and come up with an offer and timeline.
The offer I've received is the following: I would stay in my current team but will split my time between my team and my future team, dedicate time to do the responsibilities of the new eventual role, this would last for 6 months until the role gets approved and officially added to the system so the hiring can start because the company is going through a hiring slow down atm.
I found this offer to be unreasonable and borderline exploitative, expecting me to spend 6 months in a transition period split between and working for two teams (with no change to my compensation), and waiting for a role that is not even guaranteed to realize in 6 months. Am I correct to think so?
