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

Excellent article. A good friend of mine lost her job with a progressive, well-known technology company with unlimited sick/personal/vacation time. She’s a diabetic — born Type 1, not acquired Type 2 — and complications lead to her being physically unable to perform her work. For the first couple of months this was fine; after a while she managed to return to work on a part-time schedule. But complications arose, she had to take more time off, later returned, met the work goals her manager and she had agreed upon … and was then let go for unsatisfactory performance. Because of the pernicious combination of legitimate, diagnosed health problems and “unlimited” personal time.
