Having been in situations where companies would only ever reward and praise employees for working midnights and weekends, and even threaten job security for those who say no, I've seen some disturbing patterns coincide with that behavior. People who push against objectively positive change, suppress talent, remove team members from collaboration.

Learn from my mistakes and snuff this out before accepting the offer. Ask tons of questions, gauge what they value.

Ultimately, good companies maintain good talent, and bad companies cycle all levels of talent until their competition buys them out.

I like your comment here. I think that this is the startup effect. Where there is no money or time to hire the right people and they work with what they have at the moment and squeeze them as much as possible.
