I've been a dev for over 20 years. I worked for a real prick in the USA for a long time. But the worst job I had was my last one. I was working for a body shop who had no work for me for six months. So I started some side work. It was all Angular JS and C# back end. The team was a dev who was really quiet, and approved a lot of what I said but never backed me up, and a person who owned the company and told me what to do, but had NFI.

The company was riding on one contract, with a council who had a history of suing people who didn't deliver. My boss would agree to anything they asked for. As an example, we had to generate PDF documents and instead of doing a MVP, we went for gold, and worked for two months as they daily made changes she accepted. They had no planning they just coded madly. I tried to impliment agile and they just wouldn't do it. In the end we had a mutual parting of ways and I moved to Melbourne, where I got 4 job offers in 3 weeks. The job I moved to has been awesome, and I'm glad I was put on a path to end up here, but my God, they were useless.
