Go with whichever one you'll learn and grow more within. As long as you're working on projects you're excited about, constantly learning, and have good mentorship you'll be on the best path forward.

In general, there's little to no risk. Details matter. If it's a great company, it could open all kinds of future opportunities. As a planner you're likely to learn about the full cycle of product and brand development. At an agency you're constrained to Communications strategy. So I'd do it if I were you.

Just keep up with your contacts from your time at the agency, have coffee or a drink here and there, it’ll help if you want to come back + it’s just a good habit too
