From the ROOSTER.
The days of spending 20 years within the walls of a cubicle are gone. Climbing the corporate ladder is a thing of the past. And job loyalty is dead.
Millennials, who now make up the largest generation in the U.S., aren’t content to follow the same old career paths as their parents. We want to nix the corporate bullshit, in favor of office kegs, pool tables, and air hockey. We want a sense of purpose, a company we believe in, and opportunities to learn and grow. And if we don’t get what we want – we leave.
But we don’t feel guilty for demanding more. After all, Millennials are the most educated generation in history. We grew up in the midst of a digital era, and consequently, we’re the only generation that doesn’t have to adapt to new technologies. This gives Millennials the greatest ability to navigate modern platforms like the internet, mobile devices/tablets, and social media. But Millennials aren’t asking for more money.
In fact, a recent study found that Millennials would take an average pay cut of $7,800 to improve our career development with a better work-life balance, better company culture, or work that more closely aligns with our values or passions.
What is it? The people or corporate?
