Hello, I am joining Google in 2 weeks, when I told my current manager they want me to push the joining by 1-2 weeks so that we have more time to transition. Will Google think that I am not serious about joining or if this is the very common?

It is common to adjust start dates. However in the current climate of hiring freezes and descending offers, I’d try to get in and start as soon as possible.


Yup, thanks!

Is your Manager desi as well?


Ah bummer

Don’t entertain, 2 weeks is more than enough for your team to find a replacement.


Giving 2 weeks notice is a courtesy - I wouldn’t push your start date if your current employer needs more time. Do what you need to do to appropriately to offboard and enjoy your new opportunity!


I joined Google from EY too. EY leadership tried to extend my transition to 4 weeks but I didn't budge.
With the current hiring freeze, pushing out joining dates is all the more risky! You have nothing to gain from extending your time at EY.


You have accepted the offer I presume? If that is true, then google knows you are serious. 2 week is pretty standard at EY. It is uncommon to ask for additional weeks based on what I’ve seen. You can confirm with google and see if they are OK. If google is not OK, then I would suggest you let your manager at EY know that you can’t extend.



Just take PTO at EY OP, weird of EY to want more time out of you


Congrats 😊. No don’t change starting date for anyone else’s need other than yours. If you have no personal reasons to start later, just tell your current manager it is not possible.


Do Not change the start date. It’s never a good time to leave the company because they’re only thinking about what work will need to be adjusted. Congrats on Google and focus on them now. Hope a nice New paycheck too!


Don't do it. There is no reward for the risk you're taking by doing this.


Go ahead with your 2 weeks notice, no more days.
Things are changing quickly in the job market, so better to join the firm asap


So what’s best for you - join Google at already agreed upon date.


I could be in a similar position as OP, trying to change jobs soon, and I expect my ZS leadership to push me for a longer notice period than 2 weeks (they are all Desi in my project and client space). I have already extended my starting date at my new company a few times for health related reasons and I am afraid looking at the current layoffs, hiring freezes etc.

Why does Desi’s being in your team make any difference? Expect better from you.

Thank you all for response

OP what role @ google ? When did you start the interview process?

I’m currently interviewing for a hybrid Jr UX Designer role for a fragrance company. The compensation is between 70-80k. I searched the market rate in NYC and the salaries are between 103-120k.

I don’t want to get low balled as I have been in the past. Is it unreasonable to ask for what’s market value when it’s a team of 5?
