Unlimited Time Off. Is it unlimited, really?

I personally am not a fan of Unlimited PTO. On occasions where I’ve had this “benefit”, here’s a few reasons why I didn’t particularly enjoy it.

  1. I didn’t quite understand what it meant to begin with. “Unlimited” tells me I could take every day of every (paid) week off but surely, that’s not it. If the rationale is *use it within reason*, then why call it “unlimited” to begin with?

Here’s what I would prefer (again, I realize it’s very personal):

  1. Give me 4 weeks off per year. I’ll use it the way it works best for me (and of course, respecting your timelines, deadlines and such — that’s a given).

What is your preferred PTO policy? (Comment away!)
