Self-entitled narcissists, or open-minded do-gooders? There are plenty of ways to describe the so-called millennial generation--so how to do all generations work together to create a successful newsroom? Managers are looking for ways to deal with the "me" generation, as millennials seek a level of fulfillment and value in their newfound careers. How can we recognize what each needs to thrive?
