Thanks for your thoughts, Tom. Unlimited paid vacation can only function in work environments that exude trust and accountability. The overall purpose of this policy is to allow our geeks to take time off to recharge, relax, and refocus, if they are finding their projects overwhelming.
This is important for our business and our clients, because an overworked employee won’t be able to imagine the best designs or build the best systems. Our clients expect the best products, and are paying for them, so we need to deliver.
P.S. To date, we’ve never rejected any time off request.
