Do you and members of your team work OT? If so, do you flex the time to take PTO? Currently, I have flexed full days of my OT to take off. I’m not sure if you can do so at Google but seems helpful since the PTO seems low (20 days, right)?

Is anyone else surprised by the sense of entitlement you see with some of the younger folks/recent grads in tech? One recent example: Our company is offering several generous options as holiday gifts, one of them a new Apple Watch. One employee asked if there was another brand they could have instead. Pre-COVID, someone complained how we didn’t get catered lunch every day, only 3 days a week. In my first job, I was lucky to have a pot of hot coffee. I know, I sound like an old fogey.

I want to hear everyone's honest opinions on unlimited PTO policies. Call me old-fashioned, but I miss having an allotted number of days we were allowed to use annually. Seems like there are no companies following that model anymore. Unlimited PTO messes with my head and for some reason I get more paranoid about what people are thinking if I do.
