“I think everyone needs to fully understand when they’re negotiating or getting a new job, and unlimited vacation is on the table, that it can be a really wonderful thing if applied correctly and taken advantage of, but it can also be a very bad thing if it’s left unused. The biggest benefit in offering this for the employer is they don’t have to carry all that unused time in their balance sheet. It’s doesn’t come without a catch.”  San Fr​ancisco Chronicle

"Tenure sometimes means entitlement for some people. They get really comfortable with their status quo, and they decide it's not worth moving onto another role. But in the right environment, tenure can translate to empowerment for employees. The​y know what works and doesn't work. They can be the first to offer opinions." – Washington Business Journal
