- Advice Needed!
My new employer is ambitious, does have some “potential” route for progression and does “seem” to back its employees and the business. The new role is a big change in sector for me; I feel I’ve made the transition well and I figured it would make me a better engineer in the long run, depending on which sector I ultimately decide to work in. But having only been here a couple of months, I can’t help but get the general feeling I’m not really held in any real regard or totally trusted yet which I know will always take time. I’m used to being very busy with lots of travel whereas with my new role the work is small and fragmented, and although we do oversees work (one of the main attractions for me) I have barely left the office.
Anyway my previous employer has been in touch with me and due to some serious re-structure there is an opening for a very senior role of which I always had an ambition for. I feel like I could make a big difference there as long as the business changes its old ways in some certain aspects, of which I know will be hard but the business is small therefore I feel given I would be in the hierarchy I would be well positioned to make change.
For a number of reasons I can help but be attracted back to my old employer, but I’m a loyal person and can’t help but wonder how would people view such a quick succession of role moves?
Should I feel bad for my current employer or just view it as “look after No.1”?
