I’m apparently one of the few people that unlimited PTO policies are perfect for. I have no qualms about taking 5-6 weeks off every year. I also realize that having an unlimited PTO policy in place only works when you work for company that trusts its staff. I would certaily be very wary of a company with unlimited vacation days coupled with vague policies about how it can be used. Frequently that ambiguity will be used to passively intimidate people into taking less vacation. Anyway, take vacation, it’s good for you. It’s good for your team as well as you reduce your bus factor and force your team to develop habits that don’t require any one person to be a critical point of failure.
