3. Millennials are more loyal to their employers than the previous generation was at their age.

4. Millennials in the U.S. are less optimistic than their generation's counterparts in less developed countries

5. Millennials are most likely to be overworked and underpaid than their older colleagues.

“The caricature of the Millennial worker is more or less a cartoon of an entitled recipient of hundreds of plastic participation trophies who cares less about paying his dues at work and more about perks like flex-time, beer carts, and nap rooms.” — Harvard Business Review

I still like this song.

6. Millennials are too open about their salary history.

"Millennials don’t hesitate to parade their lives on live streams, and they would happily turn their friends, families and pets into viral memes at the drop of a dime." — Cassidy Rush, PayScale

7. Millennials change as they get older (you saw this one coming…)

"Whether it’s parenthood, moving to the suburbs, or investing more in retirement, large numbers of millennials are in different stages of life than they were a decade ago. Labels and stereotypes true then are no longer true, and those who engage this generation well understand those changes," — Wes Gay, Forbes
