It may not be everyone's idea of a career path, but it's working like a charm for me.
Try and remember why you left the last time. If you're going back for the same crap, you'll probably leave again. Unless the price is right, then you can put up with crap.
Basically the bottom line - How much crap you can put up with is directly related to how much they pay you.
I have to hand it to my company - they've found that sweet spot with most of the employees...... Fvckers.
