Maybe. Would have been easier for us to share our opinions if you first explained why you feel that there are no learning opportunities and bleak future prospects.

If you’re q new, say maybe less than 6 months, then I’d guess most likely you’re too quick to judge. Maybe these opportunities are just not visible to you yet.

But if these aspects of the job are important to you, and you want to find out about them as soon as possible, find somebody you can ask and share your concerns? I believe most jobs would allocate newcomers with a “buddy” to guide you through stuff like that. Otherwise HR, or your reporting officer?

If you want more learning opportunities, take up more work! Bring this up to your direct manager and tell her to give you more work or different work.

After that, if you identify some parts which you feel can be better, or a new idea you would like to initiate, draft up a brief proposal and present it to your boss or your team. Keep trying this until your boss lets you run one of the ideas.

There you go, be the change you want to see.
