I don't like my job and I've already known for the past month or so. I've been here under 6 months, is it too early to leave?

Literally just got a job and starting today after being at my other company for less than a year. I told people I was interviewing with that it wasn’t a culture fit but I thought the work was excellent. Both are true statements. If you do good work and have excellent references, shouldn’t be a problem

I moved to Canada from India 2.5 years ago for my PG in IT BA. I have a bachelors in IT and I worked as a developer for 5 years back home. After my PG, I spent 8 months looking for a job, my current company interviewed me for Technical project manager, but they offered me the role of a PC. I accepted it without negotiating as I did not want to lose the opportunity, I am extremely underpaid and I have been doing the job of 3 people, as my company keeps firing folks. I’ve lost all my confidence.

I’ve never understood why it’s ok to bring dogs into an office setting. Sure, it might make things easier for you from a caretaking perspective. Or, calm you. But, some people don’t like dogs, and others can be allergic. So, your co-workers have to be uncomfortable for a perk that isn’t required to work? Or, they are forced to cross the growing list of agencies who do allow them off a shrinking list of possible places to work? It doesn’t seem right and has always felt a little selfish to me.
