Unlimited Vacation and Other Forms of Guilt-Based Management

I think this policy only works in startups who have tightly-knit working environments. At our company, while there is no formal maximum on the number of days you’re allowed to take off, you are responsible for your work getting covered by your team. This appropriately incentivizes employees not to abuse the system or else they are taking advantage of their own colleagues.

At a bigger company, employees may have less concern about this notion of ownership and responsibility over their own work, but at any decent startup I would guess the vast majority of employees do.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
