Quick to hire quick to fire probably works well in the senior dev world where monthly salaries start at the level of the 10% of a house. Or 100%. But not for juniors. And how do you want to have committed people if you don't care about their personal development?

A little too React heavy for my taste. I'm an Angular developer, and the hosts essentially ignore that Angular exists.
