I've applied for other internal positions in my multinational software company. I'm doing it for the following reasons:
- The vision of our project is the opposite of the company's global vision
- My managers are not sure what will come after our project (which is planned to be done in 6 months). I fear that my current team might be shut down at the end of the project with the team members being reassigned or laid off
- There are positions in our company which would better fit my interests and career goals (and are aligned with the company's vision or are even positions for the company's key projects)
For now, I've only informed my boss four levels above me in the hierarchy (he's two levels under the CEO). He was very constructive and also gave me some very useful advices for internal mobility. But nobody else neither horizontally (ie my team members) nor vertically is aware of my intention. FYI I'm a young engineer with a few years of experience at the bottom of the hierarchy.
Who else should I inform, and who shouldn't be informed ? In case I need to inform some colleagues, when and how should I do it ?
