They are stating that I must work weekends because I receive stock options and have ownership, so I should treat this like my own company, though the options are not yet available and I have not bought any. The company is currently private; the options are vested over a span of 4 years if and when I buy them.

Here is my situation: My bosses disrespect me whenever they want, belittle me, question my skills unreasonably, make me do things irrelevant to my job description, blame things on me that aren't my fault, blatantly lie about things to try to put me in the wrong, and dismiss any creative contributions I may have to offer. These are people that know nothing about the web.

I am required to do front-end development and junior back end programming. I also do IT, graphic design, and random errands on the side (beside the other crap they make me do when I have to work at their house). All of this stuff I do exceptionally well, always make sure not to make mistakes, and immediately correct them if I do.

I would like to know if I'm getting exploited. I feel like I am. I am really stressed out.

What do you guys think? Legit? Or am I just being a little girl?
You must change the company bro.
