    Tell them that you'll do contract work. (If you really want to keep the connection.)

    You'll make some extra dough, they'll get quality work from someone they already know.

    Everyone will be happy.
    • Everyone will be happy.

      Except for the company where I already said yes, and for me, too, because I really want to go :-)

      • Sorry, I probably wasn't clear enough.

        Go. Take the new job. Do contract work for the old employer on the side.

        They get work from someone they know and trust. You get to skip the bs and focus on the "real" part of the job.

        The only real problem is them wanting more from you than you are willing to give. But, that is the beauty of contracting. It actually becomes a negotiation again instead of the Boss - Slave relationship.

        Again, only if you want to.
