Submission + - Job Switching: What were your experiences?

An anonymous reader writes: Having graduated a couple of years ago, I accepted a job at a fairly prestigious company in an industry in which I have little interest or knowledge for the high pay, the experience and the promise of training. Two years later, I'm unmotivated and bored by a variety of factors (broken promises, lack of real work, flawed processes / procedures, time wastage and unneccessary bureaucracy to name a few).
I'm seriously considering looking for a job in my field of expertise, but I'm concerned that a) I may be jumping the gun and there are other roles within my (huge) company that might suit me, b) I've only been here for two years and haven't accrued sufficient experience and c) this might be what awaits me in other industries.
What have your experiences been in moving industries/jobs, and what recommendations can you make for those of us without much experience in the workforce?
