How many days of PTO have you taken in 2020?

My company offers unlimited PTO.

For some reason I only took 7 days in 2020.


As for 2021 I decided to reward myself with a vacay in April, took 2 weeks off = 10 days of PTO.

Came back, everything was fine, everyone was fine :D just catching up on work slowly..


What about you guys? Whats normal in your company? How many days of PTO did you take in 2020 / planning to take in 2021?

I get three weeks of PTO and you'd best believe I'll be using it all this year. I'm far from lazy, but also far from a workaholic. As of right now I think I've taken two days. In June I'll be taking five so I can have a nine day vacation.Β

Unlimited PTO is the devil. Those companies figured out if we pretend like it's as much as you want you won't do it. Sinister...

I’ve taken 2 days of PTO this year.... I don’t recommend it. What I do recommend is traveling around the country getting AirBNBs.... gotta take advantage of the remote work environment while it lasts! I even went to Mexico and Costa Rica and worked without taking PTO

Saves them big $ when you leave. Then they don't have to pay all the unused time, and noone takes it when it's unlimited. It's unreal. I took all 4 weeks when i had only 4 weeks. Now unlimited, take nothing. Ugghhh

7-8 days, which is pretty low for my company. PTO just isn't something I think about, but I definitely need to change that. went to an unlimited plan as of last week, so hopefully I take more PTO, but we will see

We have unlimited PTO and last year I took 3 weeks. This year I am planning on taking 4 or maybe even 5 if the world opens up again. My goal is to start taking advantage of the unlimited because as other users said the companies win big on this one! I want to make sure I am getting my vacay in this year!

Unlimited PTO but also work remote, permanently. Β So probably only a week of β€œscheduled” PTO a year. But some days, I’m working β€œout of pocket” from outside the office.Β
