Unlimited. Which isn’t as great as it sounds because you feel guilty/anxious taking “too much time.”

I would have that impulse, too

Make your hours and no one cares how much time you take off. Not that you have time to do a whole lot with that. But it's nice to not have to count.

“if you get your stuff done right, meet your billables, we don’t care” Sounds great In theory, but any time you take off is time you have to make up elsewhere

Truth. Hard to enjoy any time off when you’re thinking about when you’ll make up the time.

After coming back from the short Thanksgiving break I’ve come to the realization that I am burnt out (or just entirely hate my job/life). I’ve been dreading work for the past 3-4 months. I’ve realized that the occasional extended weekend trips/breaks aren’t enough. I was originally planning on taking just a few days off at the EoY, but I’m going to now take 2 weeks off to completely detach. If you’ve been feeling the same way as I have, I encourage you to take as much time off as you can 🥲😪

By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
