Our team had a really good on boarding during this. Collect every single document you think they’ll need to get up to speed and organize it in one lion box link for them. Org charts, contacts, flowcharts, etc. we sent at 9am and spent most of the day helping them get set up. Also set up a team meeting for her to meet everyone that day. Always tried to do video calls rather than regular calls to build connection too. Lots of check ins at first.

I had an OK experience with remote onboarding. Expect a lot of 1:1 meetings over Zoom.... quite hellish if you ask me. But your manager should set these up, or you can be proactive and do it yourself to get more face time with people across the teams you’ll be interacting with. Other than that, it feels like you’re reading a lot of materials on your own, can’t get a sense of company culture at ALL because you’re apart, but week by week you start slowly chipping at the company and people start warming up to you.

I started at a company remotely and it’s the norm for me now but onboarding took forever and I still don’t understand the culture or know my coworkers.

Does anyone have any experience with the relocation clawback provision recently? I took the payout option and have been preparing to move, but just found out I was approved for permanent remote work. I am grateful for the option, but still plan on eventually moving to the Bay area and if given the choice not until after a year or more. For employees who eventually did not end up moving within the year (but were still with Google) did the clawback provision still get exercised?

I was laid off in June and just got a job offer that I am excited about. However, my partner and I are also in discussions about moving. The job would be remote for at least another 5+ months so it wouldn’t be an issue now, but eventually people will be back in the office in some hybrid plan. Is it better to float the possibility of working remote long term with HR now? Or do I accept and say nothing til we’ve officially decided to move. I don’t want to lose the opportunity. What would u do?
