I wouldn’t worry about brand recognition. But I probably wouldn’t leave without a pay bump or a decrease in travel / hours. Your network has values. Every time I’ve left a job, I’ve had to prove myself all over again which leads to some angst for the first couple of projects.

What you learn will last you a lot longer than any brand name! If you like the work and are happy with the career progression path go for it
