I started a new job back in October and after a few weeks in, I came to find out the job was a lot different than what I thought it was gonna be. I like the company as a whole, but my position is not for me and is causing a lot of stress and anxiety. There aren’t any other positions at the company open that would fit my background so I am unsure what to do?

I also want to note that this job is in a different time zone so I have been working 11-8PM which adds to my stress with late nights.

So…..leave? No offense but this isn’t rocket science

Yeah that sounds rough OP, it's worth flagging to your manager to see if anything can be done. But unfortunately, I think the only option might be to leave

Can you elaborate a bit more? How is it different? Just more work than you thought?

Has anyone here worked at or worked with CMS Payments Intelligence (CMSPI)? I was contacted by a recruiter for a position there and have a first interview on Monday.

Thanks!
