Well, color me disappointed.

A lot of other agencies have unlimited PTO too, this isn’t unique. It’s a great way for the employer to not pay out vacation time when employees get laid off.

Mandatory time off is common in Europe and good practice.

Not only is unlimited PTO a scam, most places I know of try and make their employees feel guilty if they take advantage of the PTO they say the employees get.

It says it’s mandatory

I didnt say they were setting the world on fire, but i think this is a smart move that will help them attract top talent and grow

Honestly want to know if I am being unreasonable. My husband and I have worked f rom home since the start of the pandemic. Two kids 100% remote until two weeks ago when school started back up. I had to stop my work at 12:30pm every week day to make lunch for the kids and also made some for my husband to took it to his office nook. I typically don’t have time to stop and eat myself since I’m down at minimum those 30 minutes and I work in a bedroom so the smell of food in there is not desired…
