I have seen that a lot of people have to leave jobs for reasons such as better salary, maternity, paternity, location etc. However, they have to return to the same company after a couple of years. In such a scenarios, many people are apprehensive about joining the same company after resignation. Some one wrote to me on Twitter asking if I can share my thoughts on this issue.

This guy left the company he was working for because he had some issues with his manager. He got a new job but soon found that his new workplace wasn't making him happy. So, when there was an opening at his previous company, he decided to apply and got hired again. However, he is now nervous to rejoin the company and thinking if it is the right decision.

For starters, I believe there's absolutely nothing wrong in joining the same company, because in most cases you will be joining a completely new project. A lot of time has time passed since you left and therefore things have changed. If the role+salary that you are offered is something that you are really looking forward to, I see no reason to feel scared or apprehensive about joining the same organisation.

Unless, you have really bad experience about the work environments, company's work policies or poor management, it's not wrong to join the same workplace. In fact, I think it would look great on your resume for future employers - an indication that you gave the company another chance.

What are your thoughts about this, engineers? Know anyone who has re-joined the company? Do you think it's alright to do so?

There is a story of a man condemned to death by the king, who grants a conditional reprieve. The man said that he would teach the king's horse to fly. When someone asked the man about this, he said,'I may die, the king may die or who knows - the horse may fly!'
@Ashraf HZ • 03 May, 2015 Yep, nothing wrong with joining back your old company, unless you have an issue with their top management/culture/policies before hand.
