Re: Unsure if I want to stay at my new job
i say give it 6 months. when i initially came to this job i REALLY wanted to leave right away, i thought i'd made a terrible decision and was incredibly unhappy. things did get better - i was able to make some changes around here and get more comfortable. i've never been entirely happy here, though, and i'm not returning after the new baby is born. so i stuck it out a little over a year. i think you need more than a month to get acclimated and really know if you can make things happen the way you want.
on the flip side, i don't think there is anything wrong with starting to look for another opportunity. keep your eyes peeled, visit job boards, and just generally keep in the back of your mind that there may be a better opportunity out there. good luck!
