Confessions of an agency millennial: ‘My generation makes too many excuses.’

These days, no term is as loaded as the word "millennial." In our latest confessions, we chatted with a young female agency employee about how "millennial" is often used as an excuse for being stupid. "I always thought we wasted more time doing a timesheet than actually what we put in the timesheet. Yes, timesheets are critical to our business, but people fudge them all the time if they’re trying to get within scope and within budget," she said. Even worse, she said, is the problem of burnout in the agency world. "I can’t imagine doing this when I’m 50," she said.
