I just stumpled across this Techcrunch article about how Netflix runs (or at least says to run) its company. Very american but also very inspiring. I generally agree - however I dont agree with their "vacation" policy. They say: just take as much vacation as you would like. Sounds good but in reality this means, that people will take less vacation because of the internal competition. I sound like a unionist but I think letting people have their fixed days of vacation is best for them and (in the long run) even for the company.
But now - enjoy
