I thought I'll post my current dilemma here to get some advise and perspective. Here goes —
I am an Accountant who completed his CPA couple of years ago with Distinction in each CPA exam.
I recently got a new job in the City which pays me really well but…
6 months into the job and person I replaced for this role is still working here. He was supposed to leave after training me but that day never came. Trust me the training finished long time ago. Apparently according to the owners he is doing some project work and will finish up in June-July.
I expected this to be a management level position (I say that since I read the job description and also from the thoughts I gathered during the interview). 6 months into the job and the management meetings which are normal at any work place have not happened even once. Everyone just seems to be busy. Occasionally I'll get invitations to discuss a new strategy but when it's meeting time, they'll cancel at the last minute saying everyone's busy and we'll re-schedule for some other time.
As any other individual I have very high hopes and ambitions from my career and feel I am not doing justice to myself. I am not enjoying this role and it has become very monotonous and boring. I fear if my attitude is so negative 6 months into the role what would I feel 2 years later or even 4 years later.
I was really looking forward to working here and have a history of staying at my old jobs for 3-4 years minimum. But I am giving up on this one with each passing day.
Would like to get some thoughts on my thinking and any advice would be appreciated.
