more than 50% of respondents described those teen and 20-something employees as the “toughest generation to manage.”

“Millennials are coming in with high expectations and are disillusioned about the reality of a work place. They feel they should be rewarded and start at the top, when we all know you have to work your way up.

The IT job market continues to be very strong. The number of IT jobs continues to grow and remains at an all time high.

    If young workers are disillusioned with the reality of the workplace they will be passed over
    in favour of workers who aren’t. While the field may be graying, there are plenty of people who will
    fill the demand.
