Not at all. I had an offer letter in hand mid Sept. they wanted me to start 10/4. I wanted to get my bonus and finish up work on my project. I have a stat date 10/25. Giving me a week off after my last day.

Depends on the company & culture. I offered someone a job in July, and their start date is early December.

Might be a little delayed (so be ready for a no), but should be no harm in asking

Ask for Nov 1 and “if” they say no, negotiate back two weeks ie middle of October.

Not at all! I had a vacation scheduled smack in the middle of what would have been week 2 of my new job and I asked for a later start - ended up taking 4 weeks in between which was amazing

11/1 is perfectly ok.

Marriage or promotion 😞 I’m on track to make partner at my company. Due to the audit services we sell, we have to disclose all financial relationships, including those of our SOs. I’m engaged to a private investor, and there is no way he is going to disclose/sell investments because my company tells him to (I don’t blame him; I wouldn’t do this, in his position, either). This means I have to quit if I want to marry him 😞 Anyone else experience this kind of compromise / challenge? Any advice?
