I received two offers from two big software companies A and B. Although both companies are overall good, I like the projects & group at company A and therefore I have accepted their offer. I am going to join company A in a couple of months.
However, I would like to visit a foreign country during the end of this year. I would like to take a 2 week vacation for this. I need to apply for a Visa soon for that country. I would like to discuss my travel plans with my future company as I need 2 weeks of vacation time and also need to start sending several documents soon for applying Visas to the respective embassy. When I talked about this with the HR of the company A, she gave details of my future manager and advised me to talk with her.
Therefore, I have sent an e-mail to my future manager requested an appointment to discuss this on phone. Moreover, I have explained my travel plans in the e-mail. She replied me that she will call me on a particular day and at a particular time, but she didn't comment on my travel plans in the e-mail. However, I didn't receive a call on that day. I have waited for a couple hours on the day and reminded her (e-mail) about the meeting. She sent a "sorry" e-mail and provided another appointment on some other day to discuss this on Phone. Again I didn't get a call from her on the revised date. I have waited for a couple of days but no response from her. Somehow I feel that she do not give importance to her team members at least for future members. I am afraid about my future working with her at company A. Therefore, I would like to reconsider the offer from company A and thinking about joining company B.
How best can I communicate my situation effectively to my soon-to-be manager? Is this a sign that I'm joining a company that won't treat me well as an employee?
