I am having wondering if other people are having some of the issues I am having with there younger team members. Most of the younger team members (20- 28) expect every thing to be given to them. When you try to give them feed back or any input at all to tell them what they need to do to get where they want to be they get offended or give you an explanation of why they don't need to do this.
One example of this is I promoted a team member after only being there for a year because of him taking on extra responsibilities he took on and hard work. I had three team members complain they have been with the company longer. Yet they admit he does more work and that they don't want to do any more work with out compensation.
Another example is any time i have a new team member start some team members complain that they should get the new pc and the new team member should get there hand me down. I try to always keep every one on the same type of pc, but some times they discontinue models I have to get they the newer model. I explain to the team members that complain that we can not buy new pc's every two months and that there pc will be replaced if there is a need to.
Does any one have advice on how else i can do to get this point across or is this just how a lot of this new generation (20-28) is?
