IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
While it’s normal to have qualms about the work day, if you truly, deeply dread those eight hours at the office, it is time to move on.

If so, that’s your green flag to move on, if you’re unhappy with your current work environment.
If you’ve lost your passion for your job, open your mind to other opportunities that do speak to you, and start moving in a direction that you genuinely feel passionate about.
"I don't make any money but at least there's free coffee and snacks in the office."
Do you feel deep down you know the cons outweigh the pros? You can find a job that offers more positive than negative, and you should get ready to start looking for it.
