I recently joined a Big 4 firm as a Manager in a cross functional Data Science and Analytics Consulting group. My first project is in an area of work where I have experience but do not enjoy at all. I’m not sure what to do since this is my first project 😬

Decide exactly what is that you don’t like. Write down all the possibilities in column, and then rate them from 0 to 100. Then do the same for your position’s job description, using the same terms where applicable. Come back to your current project sheet, and see which options can be rolled in to those in second sheet. What remained in first sheet but not in the second sheet must be unique, unexpected facets of your current, first project. Come back here and ask whether those items are common for your job title, how much, or not. Then you can make a data-based analysis and decisions.
