    I have been working at Scrapinghub full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A completely remote company with highly skilled employee from more than 20 countries spread around the world.

    There is not a central office, you are always in the loop by chat and video conferences.

    Very challenging and interesting problems to solve.

    Flexible working hours from Monday to Friday and you take the bank holidays that apply to your country.

    Cons

    No chance to be part of company shares. No 401k or similar retirement plans.

    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.
