I was told I'd be allowed to transfer to a new project, after 6 months. So, I decided to stay with the firm and declined 2 external offers. I have just found that I'm being forced to stay on a project that I hate. Should I bring this up to my coach and mention the offers? I'm wanting to drive home the point that I will be leaving if this continues.

@AC1 can we hear more about those firings

Basically, what I'm seeing from the comments is, the only way out of this situation is to exit the firm altogether. Because apparently even with offers, they'll just lie and appease you, then screw you over later

Your coach has no power. Go find other external offers and leave.

First have the offers in hand before being explicit about it to your counselor else might back-fire

Just confirmed that my offer still stands at one of the companies, still waiting to hear back on the other. I'm thinking once I bring this up, I'm probably going to be heading out of this place regardless

I am also worried that he will give a negative feedback on me as this is his behavioural pattern.
