I work for a company as a system analsyt. I have about 6 years experience in IT. When I started I was given very basic, almost operational things to do to get use to the envrionment and to gain trust, which I acomplished and slowly started doing more. I then started doing support calls and then building a few servers. I also did the task which were secretarial in filling out check lists and spread sheets. A year went by and there were a couple of major projects that came up. I asked my boss if I could work on one of them. He stated that I was not technically there yet and that he did not want me working on this large project. Eventually things started to fall apart at the company with people leaving and my boss had no choice but to let me know the remainder portion of the project because there was no one else to do it. I did it and I did it well. He then later told me that there was not a doubt in his mind that I would not be able to do it. I found this ironic. It frustrates me because even though I feel I have proven myself somewhat, I still don’t get to work on major projects. Instead I get handed the server check lists to do. I have spoken with my boss about this and he says that everyone else does these tasks which I know is not true.
Right now there is no project work to be had and a lot of the work that I use to do has been handed off to another team to deal with (not because I was incapable). I find that I have literally NOTHING to do daily and feel worthless at work. I have told my bosses this. They give me more admin tasks to do. I am worried about loosing my techie know how. Do you think it is time for a new job?
