Use it or lose it?! Everyone has expectations of work/life balance and needs a break once in a while to recharge, even though most of them don’t feel like they can totally unplug from the business.
Craig and Andy talk about company culture related to its impact on the intersection of dev and product.
Andy doesn’t think vacation days should be mandatory. Know your superpower and what to do. Find a sustainable balance, so you don’t slow down development or disappoint customers.
Craig agrees that balance is important, but it should include reducing stress and taking time off. Don’t be a bottleneck and lead by example to intentionally get the right people onboard.
