I went through a period of about 5 years before this role of having several different roles one after the other, and felt the need to settle down for a bit. It's not like I haven't already worked for a wide variety of different people, environments, tech etc already in my 20+ year career. I feel I can contribute to the development team and business more now due to my greater understanding of them both. By always being on the move you never really get to know the software in any great detail. You're always the new kid on the block.

I've always left every employer on good terms. Never burn your bridges has always been an important adage for me (that person you bad mouthed may be your next colleague or manager).
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
