Some of it feels relevant, but I am not fully prepared to generalize my entire generation into this ADD/anti-establishment mold.
I disagree that you can’t correct a millennial. You can correct us, but you just have to do it gently because we are more sensitive to it.
While it’s true that most of us aren’t prepared to compromise work-life balance, or give our entire existences over to a company who only sees us as numbers on a page (at the end of the day), it doesn’t mean we can’t be intensely loyal to a company or workplace where we feel happy.
One thing is for sure. I do believe that my generation is going to (for better or worse) redefine the concept of corporate “productivity.”
