    Thanks for taking the time to give us this feedback. I know from time to time we all have to work additional hours to meet deadlines and I'm glad you can talk to your manager about this.

    I worked at Scrapinghub full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Remote with nice people all over the world.

    Cons

    - No transparency in the decision making
    - Senior management doesn't take responsibility for what they do
    - No trust between CEO, his favourites and other company
    - No critics allowed. Especially no critics for CEO and his favourites.
    - Awful engineering quality and culture. However management doesn't want to improve anything
    - Die hard to get salary rise regardless of efficiency and results.

    Advice to Management

    Replacement of CEO most probably would improve the company. Current CEO tends to avoid hard reality.
