Should I sell all my first-year RSUs in one transaction?

My first-year RSUs will be vesting sometime next week, but due to recent market drop and terrible earnings, the RSUs have lost a lot of values in last 2 weeks.

With the super-high inflation and possibility of Putin attacking Ukraine soon, I feel that the real market crash (the like of -80% drop) has a non-zero chance to start this week. This leads to the idea to sell all my RSUs in one transaction, wait for 3 – 5 days for it to settle, and buy in SPY / VOO. However, as the market is unpredictable, it is possible that I may sell at a low price and have to buy in SPY / VOO higher later.

Should I sell all my RSUs in one transaction, or should I consider multi-day / multi-month sales?
