Doesn't work like you think. Research shows people take less vaca under these policies.

Digitas Health had unlimited sick time, which I preferred over unlimited PTO.

Edelman. But, you'll notice that with "unlimited" vacation, there are strings attached.

I'm sure they can't wait to employ you

We have it. You can't just bolt whenever you like (have to ask for the time off in advance, but that's no different from other places I've worked). I'm less than a year in and just got my 3rd vacation approved (6 days, 3 days, this one is 6 again)

The Bloc had it when I was there. It averages out to people taking about 3 weeks vacation per year. I took two times two weeks per year. But you have to have them planned well and in advance

@DigiProducer1 -- "Digitas Health has Unlimited sick time" that's hilarious 😂

^^ HAD. I'm not there anymore so I can't speak to present policy.

So, apparently my school has the lowest teacher attendance this year. As teachers- what would be a good incentive to get perfect attendance and not use your PTO?

What length of vacation do you usually take? I’m a big fan of taking many 4 day weekends (instead of 1 or 2 longer vacays) but apparently those aren’t encouraged in the Big Law world?

I really don’t understand how people just accept the deal process timeline.

Is the culture of saying "thank you" not a thing here esp for holiday gifts? I was raised to thank people explicitly if someone went out of their way, even a quick acknowledgment - "hey I got your X, thanks for the thought". I've now observed this too many times over the years from my clients, bosses, teams, EA to wonder if it's my sense of etiquette that needs a reset. Mind you, the people in question are great people who I have great relationships with so I'm at a loss.
