Employers have a decidedly negative view of the so-called millennial generation, seeing those in the demographic as having poor work habits and inflated pay demands.
That’s the upshot of a March survey on the professional outlook for people in their 20s, known as Generation Y.
While prized for their perceived facility with technology and social media, many of the bosses surveyed said millennials have a poor work ethic and are easily distracted. More than half said they have unrealistic compensation expectations, according to the study by research firm Millennial Branding and financial giant American Express.
But the study found the workers have an upbeat view of their bosses even though not many are willing to provide the mentoring many Gen Y workers desire.
