Hello fishes, I'm currently working as a Project Manager. I've been asked for a PMO manager role in a different org. Any suggestions if it's a better role to consider?

Both roles are almost same right? What’s the difference in responsibilities?

In my opinion I don't think so. Looks like it slightly differs in each org. In my current org, it seems to be 1 or 2 levels higher role. Nevertheless it might vary in other org. I'm not 100% sure though. So I need any inputs if anyone has better clarity on the role.

PMO will more probably act as central repository & process disposition.. You can get projects also sometimes but mostly it will be on org procedures , templates and resource management.. So get to know the scope from the team..

I’ve received an offer to boomerang back to my previous company for a 75% increase in comp plus stock. However I’m worried that if I take it, I will be forever labeled a job switcher.
Background:
Company 1 outta school - 3 year
Company 2 - 1 year
Company 3 - 1.5 years (left bc I didn’t like Sales role)
Company 4 - 3 years
Boomeranging back to company 3 for a non sales role.

Is this a bad career move?

Can someone help me and DM me with the contact info (email) for the HR personal who handles FS advisory Insurance? She did my exit interview when I was at PwC. I think it’s Michelle but I’m having amnesia today.
