I saw someone experiencing a similar (but not quite the same) frustrations to me on here and I saw the replies were very helpful and insightful, and I'm hoping you could help me too.
I worked in a company for 10 years, toward the end, I worked as a reporting analyst. I loved (most) of the people there with really forward thinking people, but it became very high demanding and also fast-paced - which I didn't mind on it's own but I didn't have time to do everything, with continuous instability/worry about future of everyone's roles (they had a couple of re-structures and moving around people for few years, which I believe is still going on) causing me to have time off for stress.
Considering the above, I decided it was the time for me to move on. I got a new role in a different company, which is a different industry but at high level, he purpose of my role is effectively the same. Report on how well that certain sector of the company is doing.
Now, here is my frustration. It's been a couple of month now, and the methods used by this new company to do effectively the same work is... very inefficient. The method used compared to my old role lack structure and the software (which they have a lot of, but random variety of it used through out when the source of the data is the same), and it's almost as though I've carried on with my old role but the technology has gone back in time. Something (the equivalent task in the previous role) that took 15 minutes to do takes couple of hours here, it's very manual and very had for someone outside of the business to get to grips with as in-depth knowledge of the industry is needed with little amendments needed in the data (manually of course).
The previous company did have a similar situation 6,7 years ago, but even then they were still ahead of this company, and I know it's going to take a drastic re-building of the whole work to change this.
I've started thinking about leaving as I feel I am starting to feel very unsuitable for the role, which I had before but because I know things could be ran better. But am I being a spoilt brat? I like the people but at the end of the day they're not going to be there forever (and could argue is part of the problem why things are done like this).
Any advice would be much appreciated.
