    Good culture. Bad work life balance.

    Used to work there but got fired for taking vacation.

      Getting fired by taking a vacation is funny :D

      My understanding is it was common there in the past. Maybe not so much anymore.

      Just curious, how much vacation did you take? I know many people who take ~4 weeks per year without problem...

      One week. It was on short notice though.

      Wow, that was still rough - sorry to hear that man. There are definitely times I don’t feel comfortable taking a vacation at all, and same for everyone on the team...

      Got to love that unlimited PTO policy.

      tbh six weeks is definitely within the top 20% of what people take. does it include the company-wide two week winter break as well?

      I’m surprised that recruiter didn’t tell you about winter break - but yeah, four weeks on top of that would be considered excessive by many. I’d suggest that you work a bit harder in the first year to show you can get things done, and after that it could probably be easier.

      Did they sell you on a housing subsidy OP?

      I’m pretty sure recruiters would sell anyone on that, cuz why wouldn’t they...

    Are you applying for a technical role or HR-related?
