My TFS is ignoring me and it seems like he's blocking me from rolling onto a project that I want to get on (it's outside of my group). Should I escalate?

What group is it? Maybe reach out to your CC to see if that could help

OP: Agree with A2 about escalating to your CC. Is your CC aware of your preference?

Working outside of your OG is tricky, and we as a firm haven't decided how that aligns with the new regional model. Do you want the role because of the role itself or because you want to be in a different operating group? If it's the latter, talk to your CC about finding an experience like that where you are. If it's the latter, make that desire known to both your CC and TFS. Transfers are common and relatively easy, so no need to hide what you want.
