Morningstar: Unlimited days off?
Morningstar: Unlimited days off?
Days off/year: Untracked

Morningstar has not tracked employees' vacation time since the company was founded 27 years ago. The flexible policy places the onus on employees to prioritize their time to get their work done how they see fit.

A Morningstar representative says that employees generally end up taking around two to three weeks of vacation every year, but some staffers have been known to take up to six weeks of vacation per year if they can work efficiently the rest of the time.

Morningstar also claims that its flexible vacation policy relieves work-related stress surrounding last-minute issues such as leaving early for a children's soccer game or for a dentist appointment.

Employees who stay with Morningstar for at least four years have the opportunity to take a six-week paid sabbatical.
