I have been at my current job for a little over 6 months. I am a supervisor with a great staff and good co-workers. I am not as interested in the work we do in the office, tax related, and am not clicking with my current boss. She constantly questions me about my decision making however she states they are sound after I explain them to her. I'm used to having more autonomy and feel at this point she is more micromanaging me than anything else. Additionally, the other supervisors come to me with their concerns about her management style and how unhappy they are.
I had applied for this job and another job in the same organization at the same time and accepted my current position as I did not hear back about the other position.
The other position recently became open again and is only available to internal candidates which I now am one of! My first instinct was to apply to the job. The work is more interesting, fits my skill sets, has a higher pay range and has more opportunity. I am torn as I worry about my staff, co-workers and boss' opinion of me if I a)try for this job and don't get it and people realize I want to leave or b) get the job and leave after 6 months.
I am not happy in my current role but not sure if I have given it enough of a chance. However, life is too short and I always aim for better opportunities at long term success. Did anyone have a similar situation or any thoughts on how to proceed?
