Starting new job before quitting old

Google just.uni
May 13 19 Comments

My start date for my new job is 6/24, and I'm wondering if I can stay at Google until the 25th (using vacation days for 24/25) because I have a chunk of stock vesting on the 25. Has anyone done this before?

    No experience but sounds like an awful awful idea

      DuckDuckGo this, google could track you and that’s how you get implicated

      DuckDuckGo on Mozilla is his only hope

    Never ever do that. Postpone your start date

  • It’s not legal. You’re still under google employment contract and it doesn’t allow you to work for other companies. So, if they find out, you’re screwed.

    Why not just push your start date back by a few days?

      that's probably what I'll end up doing, just wanted to consider my options

      There really are no good options for this. Never ever have an overlap of service dates unless you want to get possibly sued by Google in the future. I bet you are switching to another tech company and even if not, it would at least be considered moonlighting.

    I did that with Microsoft in 2016. I gave ~2.5 weeks notice and Microsoft asked me to leave same day as I was joining Facebook. I started Facebook next Monday and got paid first 2 weeks from both Microsoft and Facebook. It felt nice 😊

    If Google has a walkout policy, you can get paid from both places first 1-2 weeks ;)

    Honestly why would u want do that? Just make sure there are a few days of PTO and then join your new job.

    Push back your start date and quit the day after it vests. Not professional but worth it.

    Yes, above is correct in theory (you can get sued etc). In reality, it’s highly unlikely since it’s only a day overlap (unless you on some super “black ops” team ). More likely, you will be blacklisted and never work for google again

    There will be no lawsuit. You can quit and use vacation days and make your last day after 1/2 weeks depending on PTO. Ask recruiter/HR/people ops. You aren’t allowed to work at both places. What you’ll do is handover laptop/badge access etc.

    A lawsuit would wipe out the dollars you are looking to gain so not worth it
