I worked for 7 years as a programmer for an outsourcing company. Due to the structure and mode of business I felt that if I could not be promoted to team manager (which I am not suitable for) I would always be treated as a junior. I moved to the same position in another company that has a product in the hope that it would be suitable for me. I've been there for a few months and am quiet happy there. But while the previous company was only max 0.5 hr from home the current one is 1.5 hr (and I have small kids at home) so I am thinking of going back (I have contacted my previous CEO and at least for now the door is open) But I am reluctant to do so because:
- I feel I am playing with the trust of current company.
- Am afraid the old feelings that made me leave will reawaken.
- returning with tail between my legs
My question is has anyone any insight/experience on returning to a previous company ?
