    Seems like a common theme these days: adapt to the incomers, because they won't be adapting to you.

    My wife has a project that she is required to meet with the millennials and set their expectations.

    Lemme guess. It says a bunch of shit like be respectful, don't be demeaning, we can't treat these brats like the suckers before them who actually accepted being treated like shit. Your boss sounds hot, now get back to not fucking that drunk you call a wife.

    Does this mean be tolerant of their cell phone use/texting/Facebooking while they're supposed to be working?

    "It’s more than just the way millennials use technology that makes today’s youth different
    – they behave differently too. Their behaviour is coloured by their experience of the global
    economic crisis and this generation place much more emphasis on their personal needs
    than on those of the organisation. And employers should be wary – nearly three-quarters of
    millenials in our survey said they had compromised to get into work – something we believe
    will be set right as soon as economic conditions improve.


    Millennials tend to be uncomfortable with rigid corporate structures and turned off by
    information silos. They expect rapid progression, a varied and interesting career and
    constant feedback. In other words, millennials want a management style and corporate
    culture that is markedly different from anything that has gone before – one that meets
    their needs.


    The particular characteristics of millennials – such as their ambition and desire to keep
    learning and move quickly upwards through an organisation, as well as their willingness to
    move on quickly if their expectations are not being met – requires a focused response from
    employers.
    Millennials want a flexible approach to work, but very regular feedback and
    encouragement. They want to feel their work is worthwhile and that their efforts are being
    recognized.
    And they value similar things in an employer brand as they do in a consumer
    brand. These are all characteristics that employers can actively address.

    The companies that have already been the most successful in attracting talented millennials
    – Google and Apple among them – are naturally innovative employers who are never
    restrained by ‘how things used to be done’. These companies are not specifically targeting
    millennials, but their culture, management style and approach to recruitment and retention
    naturally appeal to the millennial generation. And because of that, they are able to take
    their pick of the best younger talent around.

    Irrespective of the long-term aims and ambitions of an individual company, the ability to
    attract and retain millennial talent will be a vital step to achieving it."

    I worked with some younger people in a prior position. They're all self centered mama's boys/girls. And their sense of humor totes sucked, yo. Saw an email once that said 'totes perf' and that was it. Their lingo is dumb.
