Just signed with Google, but with a January start date. Is it still possible to shift my start date to December, given the stock refresh schedule? I wish I had learned about this earlier.

It would be ideal to join in December to be eligible for refresh. Otherwise you would have to get an EE rating your first year to qualify for refreshers if you join in January. Just speaking of personal experience as I had to join in January due to delays in my visa processing and had to work with my manager to chart a plan to ensure I was set up to work on impactful areas to get the EE rating. Its not easy but also not impossible to get EE rating. Good Luck!!

If you are available to join early, talk to your recruiter. They usually have 2 joining slots every month.

Joining in Jan vs dec will not effect your stock refresh

G7 I just looked on Moma and am confused now too ha.
It says there’s an equity freeze date in mid October (this is a change from my previous knowledge) and that Nooglers are ineligible for their first annual comp cycle.

Theoretically a Noogler would become eligible in December 2022, ahead of 2023 grants etc.. unless the Oct date is the deadline. A little fuzzy on this now.

This is the biggest secret the recruiters dont tell you about, it totally screwed me. I would push hard for a December start date and it should not be an issue. Good luck!

Same story, needed to choose between starting remotely in Nov or wait Jan and start in office, no options for starting in Dec were available due to holidays in between. I’ve chosen Jan for personal reasons and hr informed me before that this will not grant me a refresh at the end of my first year. Doesn’t matter for me, I’m so happy to join anyway and my after tax TC will be almost tripled compared to the actual one 😅

Didn't they change it to October? Be employed by end of October to be eligible for the refresh the following year end.

They moved me! Yay.

Okay, now I'm hearing this October thing. My receuiter seemed to agree that a December start date would fix this issue, though.

I'm S&O L5, for what it's worth. :-/
