Last week we asked our readers to tell us what they think of unlimited vacation policies after we reported that Austin tech companies are increasingly offering this perk as a key recruitment tool.
It turns out, most of you either love or hate this policy. Here's the results of our poll:
Nearly 50 percent of you say you're "skeptical" about these policies. But nearly 50 percent also say that it's either a great idea or a good policy, but you wouldn't change jobs over it.
Here's what some of you had to say about these policies on Twitter:
Good for the company! Most of my co-workers take less vacation now tho bc we're not on "use it or lose it" https://t.co/t6n7PKqNMS— Jay Wallace (@michealjwallace) August 2, 2016
@512tech it's great when you are project based and have work to do by a deadline. If work is continuous then it's tough to monitor— James Lafferty (@JamesLafferty) August 1, 2016
I used to offer unlimited vacation, but I found that employees didn’t actually use it. Too much pressure. https://t.co/8fs4M6SrIS— Joshua Baer (@JoshuaBaer) July 30, 2016
@512tech we call it flexible PTO - there isn't a maximum but there is a minimum of 2 weeks off— Cindy Y. Lo (@RedVelvetEvents) July 30, 2016
