Tired of hearing about millennials, me fucking too – especially when you, like myself, am on the older end and have no ability to identify with those born in the late 90’s. I still argue that there should be another generation in there but isn’t that just like a millenial to complain about it? While reading an article about what millenials want in the workplace, it got me thinking about what I actually want but based on this article, here is what I should want and what I think about it.
What a pretentious statement, I just want benefits – I mean, if you have the luxury of being picky then stick it out for a company that offers what you want. Some of the desired benefits listed are tuition reimbursement and college savings plans, that’s all fine and well but find an employer that offers those rather than accept a job and then bitch about the lack of benefits.
Apparently, millenials have a reputation for job-hopping and to all employers – see above. If you don’t have what I want, then I will move on – why sit and rot in a job that isn’t satisfying you? Perhaps this attitude is representative of a generation that has always had it pretty good when it comes to the economy. Really, I am on the fence with the loyalty thing, if loyalty mattered to companies then they wouldn’t lay people off in a matter of hours but expect a two week notice from employees who are leaving #justsaying
Sure do but mostly I just want to be able to opt out of Social Security, I can manage my own retirement plan and feel confident that it will actually be there when I cannot work anymore.
I actually think it’s unfair of employees to expect a company to accommodate their needs outside of the 9-5 and this is where I split with a lot of friends who are new parents. Also, as a single, childless employee there is more pressure to work late, work weekends, and basically just have my ass at work all of the time. Again, there are companies that value the family dynamic, find one and work there.
Yes and no – I don’t need time off to volunteer, I just do it outside of working hours. Would it be cool to have this option? Maybe but it’s not a deal breaker. I actually care more about environmental impact and what companies are doing to reduce their carbon footprint. If more companies don’t start making an actual effort to save the environment, our social impact will simply be that we are all dead #justsaying
If your’re a millennial (or not), do you agree or disagree with the points made in the article?
