When I am at the office not working I feel fine. Doesn't bother me at all.

I would not be at all surprised to learn that companies that went to unlimited FTO saw their employees take less time off.

The staff may be anxious regarding just how much did the company mean what they were saying about unlimited time off.

Will the company judge staff performance based upon accomplishments or time in the office?

Unlimited time off is a minefield for staff to navigate.

That has been recognized for quite a while now, that unlimited time off results in less vacation taken. Heard talk of companies moving to unlimited time off, with a MINIMUM amount of vacation that you have to take.

Peter: I wouldn't say I have been missing it.
