Unlimited Vacation and Other Forms of Guilt-Based Management
Johnathan Nightingale

Unlimited vacation is very difficult to navigate. I’ve heard of a clueless (non-business background) employee asking for 5 consecutive weeks off in their 6 months at the company, and I’ve also heard of people taking just two weeks for fear of looking like they’re abusing the privilege.

I think it’d be best to give everyone a hard 5–6 weeks of vacation that they can use or ignore as they please. That’s enough to cover trips, holidays, and emergencies.
