Six weeks ago I started a new job and now I think I may have made a mistake.
I was in a middle management position and on very good terms with leadership. I left for a big salary increase and to work in a brand new facility for a company I think has a brighter future.
My new position is ok but has a much more strict schedule and longer hours. There's a lot less flexibility and I don't have the discretionary time I had at my last job for creative work. This was all mentioned on the interview but downplayed, and I minimized it in my mind because of the positive aspects of the new job.
Now I'm wavering almost hourly about whether I should call my old boss and try to return to the old company. Anyone have experience or advice in this area?
