Discussion on: Describe the worst coding culture you've been a part of

Worked in a similar environment. Mine seems worse though, worked as a UI designer and Front-end developer. Was expected to make UI as I code, or at most design 5 pages in a day and come up with style guides on the fly. Coding up an entire app dashboard was expected to take a day. It was hell, worked late nights and weekends. There was nothing like project strategy, project brief, detailed product features, code review...

It was my first job as a Frontend developer. I rushed into it, and I regret it. I joined in April, and quit in December. Took a one month break, and got somewhere way better.

Did I mention I got owed months of pay? Yeah

Dang. Yeah, I stayed for about a year at mine, and until last November, the owner was still calling me every now and then to rant about the overseas subcontractors he'd try to rope into coding for him. Ugh.

Lol. Overseas subcontractors cannot quite work for him like you and others did.

Well, that and apparently they just ghosted when they got enough of him.

Riddle me this though: he hired iOS/Android app developers for PHP work.
