I just went through a similar situation. I was with company A for 7 years, we were “transitioned” to company B and I was there in a new role for 6 months before an excellent opportunity came up that I couldn’t pass. I felt really bad for my manager as he had pulled me out of a really bad situation with company A and I really liked working for him. Unfortunately, the role wasn’t a great fit and I think he knew that too. He was really good about it and was disappointed, but understood the opportunity was best for me and certainly didn’t hold it against me.

As others have said, my old team is still chugging away and it was just a bump in the road for them. Funny enough, an employee from another group that I really dislike was promoted just after I left and would have had major influence on my old role, so in the end the timing worked out perfectly.
