Offered a role to start in 2 weeks. I have a vacation planned out for a large family event last week of July. Do I tell them the first day I start or now? I don’t want the start date to push as it’s doubling my comp and the benefits are better

Just let them know now. Should be no big deal.

Vacation was planned in feb - didn’t book it recently

Same boat - I told them at the offer stage and framed it as “I know the optics of taking a vacation right after joining are poor, happy to hit the ground running if you’re willing to accommodate my existing plans.” It’s summer, no ones really taken a vacation since covid. They’ll get it. But probably better to have given heads up before starting than on the first week.

I was in a same situation and I gave them a heads up before I joined, worked fine.

It's one week. That's normal

Hellish experience but still like Deloitte. Stay? Go? Advice?
