Great, they can get two Cease and Desist orders instead of just one.
I’ve shut down some pretty cool job opportunities because of “unlimited PTO” over the last year. I’ve known quite a few people in the industry who have dealt with it and there isn’t one good thing about it for an employee.
It’s not worth the bigger paycheck when my vacation can (and inevitably will) be cancelled at the… Read more
A lot of companies have a “use it or lose it” policy with a cap on how much can carry over from one year to the next, as well as how much they’ll compensate you for leaving with unused time...if at all. Read more
Most companies I know of won’t let you bank more than 5 days.
Lol, I live in Jersey City and commute to NYC the prices of NYC are so obnoxious and laughable on almost every aspect compared just a Path Train trip away here in Jersey City. Only affordable places I really eat in NYC is generally Chinatown or Street vendors.
Do you wanna be paid a salary that would barely get you by in Ohio but for a job that requires you to work in New York? Hit us up!

55k in NYC? You'll be living with the homeless for that little pay.
