In his guest column for Forbes, BCG’s Grant Freeland talks about the communication and expectation gap between millennials and their bosses. He says, “What many bosses see in the millennial generation is entitlement: employees who show up and want more than they reasonably should expect based on what they’ve done. They are very vocal, even pushy at times, in articulating their wants, needs, and expectations.” Freeland attributes this to the fact that many millennials entered the workforce at the worst time—during the recession—and are now playing catch-up. In order to close these gaps between millennials and their bosses, Freeland suggests showing value by earing promotions through performance; focusing on the “we” and not the “I;” and trusting your bosses, listening to, and learning from them. He says that while it is good millennials know what they want and ask for it, they first have to be prepared to talk about the value they’ve brought to the company.
