Any luck pushing new job start date to 2 months away?

Intel ""('o')""
Dec 5

Hi guys. I am expecting an offer (this time from a very good company and i plan to accept it). I was hoping to set my start date to Mid February. Anyone with any luck negotiating that far? My coworkers left but they started rightaway as new company said we need someone asap. They had no visa issue and I also don't need any visa. I am sure this new manager will push too since they are agressive in their products. I would appreciate how to push start date to 2 months from accepting the offer. I will lose my sabbatical so i was hoping to take break.
Thank you for sharing your experience or feedback.

    • Well, people at Principal Eng or other grade 10 manager level or above maybe, since they get liveable wages in the Bay Area along with some degree of WLB.

      Nope, sabbatical can be cashed out in other locations in US as well if you are eligible on your last day of work.

      I just took a 2 month break between switching jobs and in retrospect it was a great decision. Breaks are important. Especially, considering ramp up periods at new places aren't usually a stroll in the park.

      How did you convince new company to wait 2 months? Do they write start date on the offer?

      ^ I told them I really like my current team and want to leave on good terms. In addition, to having already scheduled vacation plans with my family. Both reasons are hard to be disagreeable about. Once they decide they want you they want you. As nobody likes going with their second choice or restart the whole interview process which would take a few months more anyways.

    Case by case. Ask and explain your situation. How long is the sabatical? Sometimes if the company really wants you they'll even offer additional sign on bonus to buy that time if possible.

    They're are many cases when people to extend months out.
