You probably have already done this, but I would talk with your leader and ask for more responsibilities. If you have, and they have not done anything, I would speak with your human resources department and explain the situation to them. If you do not feel as if they are helping, then yes, it is probably time to look elsewhere. I would be paitient, however, and make sure that the job you go to is one at which you feel you will be challenged, otherwise, you will be right back in the same situation. Also, it is not a good idea to leave an employer, even a poor one, if you do not have another job lined up. Interviewers will ask you about gaps in your employment, or worse, they may draw their own conclusions about such gaps. Bottom line, you should do whatever you can to be happy with your job, but be cautious and paitient about the next opportunity.
