I suspect there are variations by firm so you may get better answers in your bowl, but generally speaking most of us don’t like to poach internally. So when transfers happen, we need to do it gently so we don’t upset people, because next day we could be in their spot.

Tactically, sometimes there are other considerations like impact on existing projects and practice, alignment with HR cycles, etc.

Partners, what if a candidate you would like to push into the pipeline happens to have a not so good year - would you help the candidate by sharing some projects or get them to a path where they can recover and get back on track?
