My experience is that if you get on with the people and they like you and you like them then be very very careful before you move on from it. Generally if they like you they will look after you. All you have to do is to get your head down, dont worry about politics etc and do the work.
I did not follow that advice and moved out of a really good team and i was absolutely 100% miserable where I went. I so regret it - so that is my contribution. Sue
