Internal Mobility at BX?
Going to be joining a group thisas a FT analyst and am considering attempting an internal transfer from the group I'll be joining (REPE) to their corporate PE arm. I am looking to after my stint, and this move would make the most sense for my long-term career/goals. Would be open to switching firms but feel as if testing internal mobility would make sense. My questions are:
Process: For anyone whose gone through this process after joining a firm, what did that process generally look like?
Time Line: When did you initially start networking with the group(s) you were interested in? When did you formally express interest in the group? When did you interview internally? With who and how did you bring up the idea of switching groups (MD/Staffer/HR)?
Office Politics: How did you manage the politics behind a move like this when it comes to expressing interest in/interviewing with another group while you're still with your current team?
Duration: Is lateraling groups internally feasible after 1 year or is two years required? When does the actual move generally happen? (would assume the summer time, hoping there is enough time for on-cycle recruiting with the following class of analysts)
Any answers from willing and able current professionals would be greatly appreciated.
