I’m currently at a studio that has been good to me. They took a chance and allowed me to change career paths. They gave me numerous opportunities that lead me to now, being the head of a department. The big guys at the top has expressed they could see me as the guy to run the company one day but it’s all talk and possibilities right now. I’ll have to wait for now. On the other hand, I have an offer in hand from a much bigger company to be part of their business development. Any advice?

Don’t know until you try it out. Leave an open door and be direct that you honestly could see yourself returning to their company, leave on good terms. I’ve successfully done that with three houses over the past 7yrs, each career upgrade ended up being too good to return to the previous however. Still keep in touch with members of past houses and love them each dearly to this day.

What's the new offer look like? If it's a significant improvement over your current comp, and/or a major step up in terms of title, then it might be worth pursuing. Like D1 said, leave the door open but let your current employer know that you've received an offer you simply cannot pass up, but that you'd be interested in the possibility of a boomerang if the circumstances align in the future. Good luck!

Do what is best for yu.

I would be upfront with your current employer and be open for change. Be honest with them since they gave you the opportunity, dont try to hide things because that is not going to end well. Just try to see what the other company has to offer and if they are in line with your goals. good luck!

Leave your options open. You already said that your current position doesn't guarantee anything. You should give it a try.

I've been at my current company for 15 years and 17 in the insurance industry. I'm struggling to even get a callback to interview. In a year, I've had one callback. I've sought out input on my resume from folks at the Executive level and there aren't any red flags. Am I just too entrenched and the long tenure scares employers or what?
