    What It’s Like To Work With A Millennial

    Whiny brats or technological whiz kids? PayScale.com and Millennial Branding's Generations at Work study shows how Millennials compare to Baby Boomers and Gen Xers in the workplace.

    You ask them if their bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship is a real thing and they're like:

    The words “social media” appear on their LinkedIn profile 37 times.

    And they keep telling you about the importance of “personal branding.”

    But secretly, you're learning a few things from them.

    They don’t just appreciate positive feedback, they demand it.

    And when you ask them what their career goals are, they say “personal fulfillment.”

    Which makes you do this.

    But maybe that's why they are so darned self-confident.

    They keep asking HR to add pet insurance as a standard benefit.

    Meanwhile, you are a teensy bit stressed out about whether or not you’ll ever actually be able to retire.

    They complain about their roommates, but refer to them as “Mom” and “Dad.”

    They use SnapChat to tell you that they’re coming in late to work. (If they tell you at all.)

    When you complain about traffic, they remind you that they bike to work because it's greener.

    But you suspect that they just can’t afford a car in the first place.

    So what's the deal? Are Millennials going to teach us a new way to work or stay stuck in Mom and Dad's basement?

    Just remember, if they ever stop staring at their phones, they're coming after your job next.
