In retrospect, I'm happy that I dodged the "unlimited PTO" bullet during my recent job search. Instead of vague "unlimited" I got a standard for my country, which is 5 weeks.

With "unlimited" I would probably feel guilty for taking more than 2 weeks.

@katafrakt I learnt to take their unlimited PTO in the hard way. After almost a mental breakdown while working for a start up I decide to never again work after hours and always take all the vacations and time off as I need.

In the $current_job I already took 3 weeks and still not going to their office.
