Honestly, to me.  it seems you guys are not working with very many millennials.  

This is an absolute true story.  We have what is called a Lean Lunch.  First 5 minutes, everyone writes their discussion topic to be on sticky notes.   Those are stuck on the wall.  Then there is a 5 minute window of voting which topics were the most popular. 

The hard timelines were added because the first attempt at a Lean Lunch, they never finished the topic writing section.  60 minutes, those that work start standing up go to work, and the meeting organizer is panting about cause they were not done.   So hence hard limits, or 'we will never get to the discussions part'. 

The topics that won:
- Topic 1:  Some men are dribbling pee on the floor near the mens urinal.  (15 minutes.  Is it real pee or just water droplets from the urinal... on and on ... ). 
- Topic 2: How do we use more inclusive language when providing feedback to others on their work output.  Notice that term 'work output'.  45 of 50 people in the company write code.  Initially they were discussing code review techniques.  But one person in the room was not a coder, and she felt excluded by the terms.  She just kept mumbling 'language matters, terms mater, they make people feel excluded' until we change to Feedback on Work Output.  Anyway the main output is that when you are criticizing someone else's code you have to say 'We have not done a good job of understanding the problem at hand.'  Instead of saying 'The code you wrote here sucks.'  40 minutes on this topic.  

Mind numbing.  They are actually a very productive team.  I think our generation went to the bar and drank.  These guys run, jog, climb, and so these inane meetings are their gluten free stress relief.

dewy, it's gotta be really weird in your head right now, what with you knowing that everyone knows willie is you.
But you continue to post under the willie name. Do you find that you are getting better replies as willie, worse replies, or exactly what you would get as dewy?

Sorry guys, I'm going to have to quit making pointless posts just to blast you guys. What's a girl to do? I realize how powerful your thoughts and words are. Thank you.

Looks like Obama did quite a job digging us out of that hole the republicans allowed the bankers to throw us in. Beginning of the end of greedy bankers day was 8 years ago. Looks like president Goldman Sachs will almost assuredley throw us right back into that hole with his tax breaks intended for the most needy in the country.......bankers, business owners and stock brokers. Halleluah!!!!!

In 2008, Goldman Sachs donated over $1 million to Obama.
In 2016, Goldman Sachs donated over $340K to Clinton.

Obama dug us out of nothing.  The hole was created not by Republicans but by Chris Dodd and Barney Frank.  The greedy bankers then monetized their stupidity and built a house of cards on it.

I bet you could even find a CNN article showing culapbility by Dodd and Frank. It's pretty much common knowledge how the housing bubble was formed and how it went down.

What?  Quit using facts?  Should we argue like you, with nothing but feelings and emotions?

Words are not necessarily facts. A guy in a car on a cell phone is not proof. Attack the messenger. You wouldn't know a fact if it hit you in your opinionated ass.

Yeah, greedy brokers bundling mortgages with false documentation. How did some banks resist the urge to gouge? They made money the old fashioned way. They earned it.

$1 million to Obama from Goldman is a fact.  Yet, you claim that Republicans are in bed with the bankers.

We agree on the greedy brokers part.  Where you're wrong is how the bad loans were conceived in the first place which you pinned on Republicans with no facts or proof.  Yet, it's a fact that Dodd and Frank pressured Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to lower their lending standards so that more people could afford loans.  Those were bad loans as most 8th graders would have been able to figure out.

There - those are known facts.  And my opinionated ass knows it.

The college down the road from me used to be all black. Now they give reduced tuition and scholarships to attract non black students.

Address specific inequities as they come up.   Ignore across the board whining.  

Women that leave work to have babies, and stay beyond the 6 weeks will naturally find their salaries reduced.  My female boss where I was working when we had kids, returned to work in 4 weeks.  She definitely had no problem becoming a VP and making all the money she wants.  

My wife wanted to take time off to 'raise' the kids.  She was managing 15 person financial departments of medium sized companies.  After 6 months it was clear that staying at home was making her nutty as a loon.  So she went back to work, but only 3 days a week.  4 years of that and she was really just a individual contributor from them.  Probably made 1/2 the salary she was making at age 30. 

I am just not seeing an inequity that needs to be addressed in this case.
