Got an interview and talked with some people, but not my current direct supervisor. Got hired and things were OK, but because of the training I wasn't really working on the stuff I got hired for, so I let it go. A couple of months in I was told I am supposed to do something else by my direct boss, which was something never brought up during my interview and wasn't even in the job application. It's still software development, but it is somehow in a different branch.
I did not feel speak up at the time, I was scared by being the new guy and immediately complain would have cast a bad shadow on me. Now I realize that I am really starting to hate what I am being asked to do and this has repercussion on my performance and mood on a daily basis. Every day is really tough, not only for the meaningless tasks due to being the last arrived, but also because I know they do not add anything to the career I was planning.
I am too afraid to speak up because there is no way my direct boss won't be pissed off. In the end I am messing with his plans. Additionally, I am still on probation. I feel this is a lose-win situation in the best case (win for me), or lose-lose if he decides to retaliate.
Shall I suck it up and hope I'll get the chance to bring up the thing later and get moved when I'll have a good reputation or shall I do it now?
