Recruiter presented unlimited PTO as a “generous relocation package”. 😂

a) Unlimited PTO only benefits the employer
b) Unlimited PTO does not actually help me financially relocate.

    Sure it does! Accept the job and immediately submit a vacation request with no end date. You get paid and don’t even have to move.

      Except when you leave...and didn’t take any vacation, you get nothing.

      Why would I accumulate vacation? I use it instead. My experience is super positive

      ^^ how many weeks have you taken off?

      It depends on your manager. Some managers frown upon it

      As I said, it depends on the company as well. I have friends who barely can take a day off. At Pinterest it’s usually 5-6weeks

    That’s ridiculous. However, unlimited PTO *can* be great (e.g. Gusto, Twitter)
