Netflix (s NFLX) has long been famous for giving its employees unlimited vacation time. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings justified this move in a slide deck he first published online in 2009, which also outlines the company’s approach towards hiring (no “brilliant jerks,” please) as well as firing (only keep the people that you’d fight for if they wanted to leave).
Facebook (s FB) COO Sheryl Sandberg praised the deck in a new GQ magazine story about Netflix, saying:
