edmo: Is that how they're describing nepotism now?
zedster: FTFA:""These trends are being driven by millennials because they care about culture," says Dan Schawbel, author of Me: 2.0. "Research shows that millennials typically stay at a job for about two years-and they have different priorities. They'd rather have meaningful work over more pay, or work for a company that gives back or cares about the environment. They want a culture that's less hierarchical, more flexible, and more understanding of difference, because millennials are the most diverse generation."NO NO NO NO NO NOWWII Gen: Hey I'll get a job and work at it for 20+ yrs, return you'll give me benefits like a pensionBusiness: OkayBaby Boomers: I'd like what my parents hadBusiness: nope you'll have a 401K that we will raid and no job securityMillennials: If I'm not going to be making great money and have no job security I'd rather work someplace I like and move on when I burn outBusiness: Why do you have no loyalty? come back?If I had the choice between culture or a place that actually took care of it's employees without screwing them over I would take the security. Having fallen into IT I have to say the contractor system is not going to inspire me to do anything less then the bare minimum, what incentive do I have? I have no profit share, no chance of getting hired on (always a false carrot they dangle), and very little security. At best Millennials are just waiting for the huge delayed wave of Baby Boomer to retire and open up the job market for them, at worst you are looking at generation that will have far less opportunity and quality of life then their parents.

limeyfellow: I was lucky to fall into a job where the owners are very loyal to their employees, give us a lot of freedom to be creative and it is perhaps the best IT job I ever had. Sure it a little less pay than my last job, but it gives me a stable work place, 10 minutes away from home and I get great benefits and not crushed by depression. Sure I eventually get offered better pay somewhere else, especially when I finished working on the current programming projects but that is 2-3 years away at least. There not many places like that any more unfortunately.
falcon176: loyalty is dead don't give employers 2 weeks notice, they won't give you 2 hours
whatshisname: What's asinine about it? Fitting into a workplace is just as important as skills.

zedster: Business: Why do you have no loyalty? come back?That's OK, we'll get the government to import a bunch of third world indentured servants to work for half what we'd pay you otherwise.
GilRuiz1: Someone in HR once told me that the purpose of all the candidate screening was intended to discover two things:1) can this person do the job?2) do we like this person enough to spend 8 hours a day, every day, for years in the same room with them?
ModernLuddite: I have, in the past, just refused to answer bullshiat questions. I am polite, but I explain that I don't really understand how that pertains to me performing my job tasks, and if I ever came in to work with a DVD player to screen my favorite movie, or expected to just knock off for a month to go to the south of France in the summer, I wouldn't be working there anyway.I've actually gotten jobs after that.Of course, where I live there is a hideous worker shortage and you can show up to an interview with poo in your pants and be fine. So I dunno.But seriously, I do NOT socialize with my coworkers. I do not talk to my coworkers. I do not share personal or private information with my coworkers. It's none of their damn business and I will not play games or jockey for position. This is, incidentally, why I will never be in charge of anything, but fark it. I don't like the admission price.

texdent: I once got asked 'what was the last movie I saw'.
