Rant: why are the older generation of workers like this?
Just need an area to rant, I had consulted one of my older colleagues (about 20 years my senior) on where to feedback on for my own improvement.
My boss is a stubborn mule and is ridiculously hierarchal, so is very difficult to get through to, and I wanted to feedback to a third channel regarding this as I felt that I was not being considered and always the second choice even if I had expressed interest in something.
I feel that there’s still things I can learn from my job but I don’t feel like I am being trained to my full potential.
Some of it feels like gender bias and some others well, feel like straight up bias and the longer this goes on, the more leaving seems like an option even though it is not my first choice.
I consulted my colleague and asked them if there was any third channel I could highlight this to and the response was along the lines of “you should be grateful you have a job” and proceeded to sort of “lecture me”.
I don’t think I have been this dumbfounded in a while and concluded I really spoke to the wrong person. but I have got to ask the slightly older gen, why do you all think like this?
how do you all think like this? what happened to lifelong learning and improvement? being comfortable in your job is nice but have you never strived for more?
maybe this is why there gen z (me) have such a hard time adapting to work, everyone just seems to want to be comfortable and not challenge themselves anymore and when we question and try to put forth suggestions, just seems like we are arguing with the gen Xers :/
