"My work is boring, repetitive, and involves sitting in front of two computer screens all day, which can sometimes last 12 hours, overtime is required and my co-workers are lazy & unmotivated which shows up in their work."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would create an environment of encouragement and growth-opportunities that allow employees to flourish within their positions and gain the skills and experience necessary to move on when ready."
