These are really common now a days. The seniors can take care of it, and don't see the bad side, the juniors learn the hard way.

I must also mention that everyone will have a different perspective. For some it is a heavenly job, for some it's a nightmare.

Looking down on workers

Few days ago I was in a call with some client meetup. All of their talk was like honey, the budget seemed really healthy, their attitude was respectable. Except they seemed to look down on many things that a developer cares about.

They said things like Well, the error logs doesn't matter much, And then continued recently it stops working frequently and we don't know the exact reason.

From the look of the code, it seemed they did not pay the previous developer that much, was giving really tight schedule and the developer ended up with very poor code, no unit tests and then left the project because he couldn't take it anymore.

Outsourced works

Most outsourced web development works are done for very low rate, thus the quality also decreases thousandfold. The web is polluted with such low quality stuff where everyone is just trying to trick each other.

Client X has $100k budget for app, his project manager starts outsourcing it for $10k to a different team, keeps the rest of money, the team then starts paying the developer $1k. It is indeed a field where some shines, and some gets scammed.

I like how those developers don't get the benefit the other developers are having being on the good developed country.

This is altogether a different issue, but is related to the full stack since the overall web is build by the developers hard work.
