This might make you think less of your boss. The CEO of FullContact API in Denver actually PAYS his employees to go on vacation. Each employee receives $7,500 to go on vacation once a year. But there are a couple of catches:

  1. You must use the money for vacation.
  2. While on vacation, you must disconnect yourself from work -- no email, no tweets, no work of any kind.

CEO Bart Lorang calls it a "paid, paid holiday" and if you follow those two grueling rules, you can have the play money.

 

What's the coolest thing a boss has ever done for you?
