Folks, based on your experience, what are the pros and cons of making an internal transfer within your firm and/or applying for a role at another firm when making a move to the west?

I don't there any cons different from changing jobs in general. It's just a more annoying/ less smooth process than most people would assume it to be

Depends what you're looking for: better WLB, Interesting Work, Passport.
From personal experience transfer within is easier if you are well connected.
Cons means you will need internal approvals so no control over timeline and might have some visa type limitations e.g. UK intra-transfer.

Generally if you like the brand/firm you're in definitely go for transfer as might help in returning back within the same team.
