Upside is that it's still a vacation. Downside is that work comes along with you.
My boss is sending me out on a workcation to London for a week. Luckily I already finished half of my work so I'll have lots of downtime!
When something happens at your job and you get paid for doing nothing for a few days in a row.
After we realigned the department, I have a workcation for the next three days until management figured out how to assign us work again.
