Job Start date at Google

Intel N00gler19
Mar 14

Have my start date at Google in the first week of April but I have some RSUs vesting in May. Is it ok to move the start date to May 2nd week? How would my recruiter and HM react to this?

    I think first impression is important. Don’t haggle over a small amount. They must have already given you a big TC raise.
    What do you think the HM thinks when he hears you want to delay your joining for Intel stock? Especially when they have already changed the joining date for your immigration issues.

      This is exactly the concern I have. That's why wanted to hear from fellow Google employees. 😦

    • VMware you are over stressing this.
      Google is a huge body shop. I'm pretty sure the team doesn't care if he joins.3 weeks later.
      We are talking 3 weeks, not 3 months.

      OP, do it. It will barely make a difference and if it does, it will be forgotten quickly

      Google might be huge but his manager cares only about his projects. And op already postponed his joining from March to April.
      So the HM showed understanding from his side. And OP could be get into taking undue advantage category.
      Also, his HM might not make a big deal out of this. But do you want take that risk at your new job or do you want to start with your best foot forward?

    A couple of grand is meaningless in the big scheme of things. If the recruiter was pushing for March, the team needs you ASAP obviously. You already delayed it to April - trying to push it back to May again because of unvested RSUs is not going to look good. I would just start in April...

  • I don’t think it hurts to ask. The worse they can say is no. Don’t demand, and don’t give them too much information, just ask

    Why didn’t you think about this before signing the offer?

      Recruiter pushed me to have an early start date in March. But due to immigration issues, they moved to April.

    Unless you already signed I doubt it hurts to ask.

      I already signed the offer but can I still make a request? Are they very particular about joining date?

      It will be matter of 3 weeks to vest my Intel RSUs, hurts lil to loose them being this close 😜

      Yes. I delayed my start date by months to pick up bonus and RSU.

      Walmart, was this after team match and signing offer? Isn't a specific job waiting/ budgeted for your joining date?

      I did have to rematch. Team one was willing to wait for a while but not as long as I needed. My second choice option was willing to wait.

    How much money is it? 5k? Don’t risk messing up a new relationship with your boss for 2.5k after taxes.
