About 2 months ago, I started a new job. My employment contract states that there will be 3 months probation, 1 month notice period and if I resign within the first 12 months of my job, I would need to pay back the joining bonus.
3 days into the new job, I found that the job was not what I signed up for. What I was assigned to at work differs from my job description. I am based full time at a client's place and I have spoken to the client line manager. He asked me to speak to my company's account manager. I did, and the account manager told me he will speak to the client line manager and requested me to "stick with it" for now. No clear indication on how long the situation will last.
As of now I am contemplating to resign. But at the same time I do not want to pay back the joining bonus. Can I negotiate serving a longer notice period in exchange of paying back the joining bonus? What other options do I have?
