Unlimited vacation is a dark-perk and you should use that to your advantage
Wesley Walser

There are differences between PTO and vacation pay. In some states, you don’t carry over. There are also caps set by the company as part of a time off policy. I see both systems being abused. I had a staff member who maxed out on his vacation of 6 weeks and never took a sick day. Upper management wanted him to take a day here and there to lower the number but discouraged from taking the whole 6 weeks at once due to staffing issues. I told him he could do whatever he wants and I will find ways to cover him.

Time off is a perk and great companies that have great employees will have a great work/life balance. If there isn’t people burn out and leave.
