Just accepted an offer and the start date is in 2 weeks. I don’t want to push this back, as if I start after I won’t be eligible for 2021 performance bonus. However, to meet this date I would have to put in my 2 weeks TODAY. Any risk about doing this before the background check is complete?

I didn’t wait. I also was never notified if/when my background check cleared. I also have nothing on my background to my knowledge that would hold it up. I would say go for it if you are in the same boat.

You should know if you have any questionable items in your background. If have some shady stuff, I’d wait. Otherwise, why are you worried.

like

It’s not just about a shady past. It’s also an issue if you don’t fit squarely in a box. For example, If you were self-employed there are a lot of hoops to jump through, which can cause delays because you have to prove employment in different ways. Didn’t change the outcome but can be extra stressful and time consuming.

I had similar dilemma when I left ACN. I did extensive research on background check and realized there is nothing to worry about because I should pass them with flying colors (ex. Criminal charges, etc.). I put in my notice two days before it was cleared.

like

Yeah I didn’t wait either. As soon as I accepted my offer I put in my two weeks. I also did have some small issues come up during my background check (they couldn’t get a hold of an employer so I had to provide pay stubs to prove employment). I still wasn’t worried. I think you’ll be fine.

Most people say to wait for the bg check to complete, however, if I waited I would be in risk of working for 2 firms at the same time, which I’m sure is not a good thing...

Also it is my companies policy that I HAVE to put in a 2 weeks notice before leaving

Or what? They can't force you to stay. Worst case you give up a few days of comp to get out.

For people who are familiar with work culture in Tokyo, how much embezzlement takes place? I see a good number of Japanese people on Instagram buying Bentleys and such.

With the scandal at Nissan and how many executives were found to be stealing money from the company, I wonder if this is some unspoken secret about doing business in Tokyo? Unless their comp curve is extremely steep.

Last year I lost a good job to Covid-19, so I had to take a job with the first company that offered me employment. I wanted to make it work but my boss is tyrannical and overbearing. I’m miserable working there. My question is: how I conceal my disgust while working with this person? What techniques can I put in place to handle his micro aggressions, while I find something better? Books, articles, ideas? It might take me a long while to find something else and I need to keep my cool.
