My previous employer recently reached out to explore possibility of getting me back on board.
I worked with them for 6+ years before moving on three years ago, basically to check out grass on the other side. I would consider my previous stint with them successful and my departure was on friendly terms.
My current workplace is good - and I was not considering leaving otherwise. The only downside I can think of is that the work is not as exciting as it was at previous place. On the monetary front - I'm making twice of what I was making at my earlier place with slight possibility of some serious amount if I manage to stay couple of years.
Every thing is in air at this point - but I believe they'll be offering significantly increased responsibilities (title) and will match (if not exceed) my current stub. On a personal front, I may get an opportunity to move close to my home town, which is non-existing in my current job.
I would normally evaluate it as any other fresh job offer - however this coming from my previous employer is making it a bit more challenging.
How should I proceed to evaluate this situation? What are the factors I should consider while evaluating and negotiating?
Will going back raise some flags on my resume?
