    In the last few years VMware moved to "we don't have an official vacation policy" . It is up to you and your manager to work that out. I've never been comfortable with that.

    Unlimited PTO - Some managers follow it, whereas others maintain an excel sheet to count the number of leaves.

    In billable roles "unlimited" PTO is available as long as it doesn't impact the business. Everything impacts billable revenue. Expect to be contacted or recalled from PTO for remote work.

    The so-called unlimited vacation sucks. Everyone (except management of course and CPAs) hated it when it was implemented.

    Unlimited PTO, just need manager approval. May make you work more as you don't feel the use it or loose it pressure and its fun working here.

    The untracked vacation time leaves us with a lot of flexibility
