Is it true that the Millennials want it all and they want it fast?
Indeed! The Millennial wants the paycheck, the purpose in their everyday job, the work-life balance with a get rich quick offer, without leaving out the fun things of life! .

Of course getting quickly to the top of the career ladder is of priority for the Millenial, and undoubtedly, if your company is not giving them these things, then indeed they will move on to another that will!

Have a clear sense of purpose, and a clear- cut career ladder to allure the ambitious millennial!

Office Politics; no one likes it, others cringe at the thought of it. The reality is that companies are by nature political organizations, joining it is a political act, you must influence people all the time. It means if you want to survive and thrive at the workplace you can’t just sit on the sidelines. If you want to make an impact, like it or not you must be a player in the game. It doesn’t mean playing dirty but you must figure out how to influence those around you.
