Most millennial things seen at work
1. Suntanning on the deck while "working"
2. Shots at work on a Tuesday
3. People pilfering snacks on a regular basis.
4. Show up at 10, leave at 5, complain about lack of progress.
- Amazon BB!Most non-millennial behavior: shitting on millennials when your generation fucked up the world and raised us. Thx
- Details about this fucked up world please. By the way the previous generations created the company you’re employed by. Same with the device you’re using at this very moment and just about every other comfort you enjoy in this fucked up world you live in. But please do tell.
Side note only difference between millennials and gen x is you grew up in a world where you ask for the things we wanted. I actually admire your generation. I think you’ll add value to society. You (individually) on the other had represent the bitc#y face of your generation. You are the reason we can’t stand your generation.Dec 53
- Microsoft Fapi489"Show up at 10, leave at 5" how is that a problem to you? There are many people who are efficient enough to complete there work working 10 to 5
- 1. Company builds a “fort” outside on campus to attract millennials.
2. Taking free food and drinks from work home if they’re available or complaining no free food and drinks are available if not.
3. Wondering how an extra hour or two spent working each day would positively impact progress (see comment above up toward the top of the comments for context).
4. Expecting promotion just for performing basic job responsibilities, and sometimes poorly at that.
5. Copycatting UX from outside the industry designed to achieve a completely different set of metrics for no explained reason other than “it’s what [insert currently hip company here] is doing.”
- Do you take an hour lunch in the middle of that, too? If so, I guess the question is, how much do you get done in a week because if you assume you’re off for about 4 weeks every year between vacation and holidays, then an actual 8 hour workday from you would produce 16 more weeks of work annually than your current 6 hour workday. More power to you if you can swing a 30 hour work week but if I were your boss I would be looking for ways to get more out of you and the rest of the team, which is probably doing similar hours to you. If you work on a team of 6 people, that’s 96 weeks (2 man years of output) of the current per week output being lost. What could your team accomplish with all that extra time? Probably a lot.
