    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.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Scrapinghub full-time for 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 have been working at Scrapinghub full-time

    Pros

    - Great minds. You work with some of the most awesome people you can imagine. - Trust and commitment. - Full remote positions. - Working with open source. - Engineer driven company.

    Cons

    The usual remote working cons. Sometimes, communication gets difficult due to different timezones. Also, working remotely with people from so many different cultures and backgrounds can lead to misunderstandings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on company culture. Keep investing in meetings and events. They are really useful for employees to keep in touch.

    Freedom to work from wherever you want and whenever you want, Highly motivated team, Amazing and helpful colleagues, Chance to work on the latest tech in webscraping, Low stress and pressure.

    Keep up the good work :), It would be nice to have more face 2 face interaction and discussions on video (maybe weekly), will help in feeling connected and motivated.

    I have been working at Scrapinghub full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - work-life balance - smart and friendly people - flexible working hours - remote

    Cons

    - compensation is low - depends on project, but usually not enough interesting and challenging tasks, especially if you're creating and fixing spiders all the time

    Advice to Management

    - increase compensation - give opportunity for professional services developers to be involved in company's projects which they consider interesting - currently it isn't possible due to strong involvement in customers' projects
