For people in Microsoft Redmond, just wondering do u guys normally work during the weeks of Christmas and New year (Dec 23 - Jan 03).

Should people even use their vacation days during those two weeks or nah (work from home)

    Personally, some of the best times to get a chunk of work done with literally zero interruptions.

    I don't use vacation days, but nobody else is around to get much done, so I use it for training and other misc busy work I dont have time for otherwise.

    Our team is old school, we expected to work or use vacation days. There are no freebies

      Yup. Christmas Eve, Christmas day, New Year’s day are the official holidays. Many managers give their team the week off, but not us

    Lol 😆 😂

    Microsoft isn’t open those days. Even our shuttles and cafeterias are mostly closed.
