Submission + - Young IT workers disillusioned, hard to retain (

bednarz writes: "Young IT employees pose a challenge to many managers who say the Millennial generation — employees between the ages of 18 and 31 — makes unreasonable demands for their services. "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. They have been raised to be rewarded often and when you get into the workforce those rules change a bit," says Jack Harrington, co-founder and principal of Atlantic Associates, an IT staffing company that surveyed 100 Massachusetts executives on the challenges they face. On the plus side, social responsibility is a priority for young Millennials."
