Great expectations: Millennials, motherhood and money

Lisa Mainiero, professor of management at the Dolan School of Business, shares her research in this intriguing article: Lisa Mainiero, professor of management at Fairfield University in Connecticut and co-author of "The Opt-Out Revolt: Why People Are Leaving Companies to Create Kaleidoscope Careers," says she's noticed that millennials are often eager to build a more balanced life even at the very beginning of their careers. "I hear from my students that they don't want to go work for a big financial firm in New York City," she says. Instead, they want to build their own business or pursue a more nontraditional career path. They value balance and authenticity even as recent college graduates, she says.
