    the company provides great benefits, the coworkers are friendly. cafe food is descent, they used to provide beagles on Fridays. they also will support you on higher education.

    work life balance sucks, management expects 10 hours plus a day from you. noticed some favoritism as well. management does not recognize you for your achievements.

    stop the favoritism, and start to acknowledge the great work the employees give the company back. Management also needs to show their appreciation for the accomplishments from their employees.
