Scrum is such bullshit. You are made to report to idiot product owners who were promoted from customer service reps.(that is who they were in my previous job). A few years answering phones and all of a sudden programmers are made to report to them who don't know jack about coding...Made to work in high pressure projects by setting 2 week deadlines. Then when there are bugs in code, you are penalized for bad code.

    And if you don’t put up with it, you get replaced by someone else who might.

    Churn churn churn.

    The lack of morals (and forethought) on display is astonishing.

    What you're describing isn't scrum. It's a bastardisation of scrum, which makes no sense, which is unfortunately used by companies the world over.

    Most project management stuff is misexecuted.

    The last 2 sentences are especially striking.

    Many times I've explained: a deadline isn't a bad thing - it's an expectation of when things _could_ be finished.

    Punishment... Oh no.

    Bugs - will always be there. No matter the deadline.

    TLDR: General problem of uninformed and uneducated people being promoted to managememt - most likely because the higher ups can easily dominate them.

    Has nothing to do with scrum.

    Scrum doesn’t suck as a framework by itself, it sucks when the wrong people are put into those roles. Your product owner needs to be a liaison between customer and developer, which requires at least a basic understanding of dev skills!

    I think you nailed it in the first 4 words.
