I want to start looking at other opportunities, but I’m worried my background is going to look too jumpy. I’ve been with my current company for a year and 2 months, my last company was about 10 months (terrible culture), and prior to the I worked at two companies for 2.5 years. What does everyone think? Should I wait a bit longer?

I wouldn't worry too much about time at the company but instead of terrible culture, maybe say it wasn't the right fit, the challenge I ran into is.... (if a company asks).

Take a different approach this time. Define what it is that you want or what you are currently missing. Research companies/industries that might fit your interests or ideas. Be intentional and target a select list.

I would appreciate your perspective.
I am currently working on my MBA in a professional evening and weekend program at a highly accredited university. I am thinking about transferring to a much smaller private online program, specifically because they offer a concentration in organizational health, which directly builds on my doctoral research. Does great depth and specialization outweigh the value of a highly respected generalist degree?
