I use a add-on for member management on the front-end called FreeMember. This add-on offers a more fine grained control for member management using regular templates. (including return url after logout).

Another option, besides FreeMember is LogIn Redirect. Generally speaking, the standard login/logout doesn't offer you much leeway in modifying redirects, but either of these plugins (and others) aim to improve that experience.
