It is ok not to reply emails when you are on PTO? Will we get a bad review?

No, if you’re working for a company that doesn’t respect PTO, you are working for the wrong company. Don’t set a precedent that you’re always available.

Did you set an OOO response? That should cover your ass if you’re concerned

Nope ...You should not reply to emails as you are encouraged to have PTO disconnected from work.
If you have set up Out of office alerts , you are covered.

It’s PTO and it’s part of your compensation

That's why I have a separate work phone and I set an OOO message. If I'm on PTO I am not available. End of story. Responses will be delayed until I get back.
