1) I am a millennial, but I am just disgusted with the lazy, entitled attitude that so many from our generation have when it comes to work. Everybody want to make money, nobody want to put in the work seems like. 2) A hotel room was offered to this person and they still refused.

like

The associate getting a hotel is a totally different situation than OP originally described. There's not enough people who say no to the long ass daily commute, but if you get a hotel that's more than reasonable. I also feel like OP is an asshole though who tries to distance themselves from the rest of the people their age. Being lazy/entitled isn't a millennial problem, but a problem with America in general.

You would give him a low evaluation and no bonus regardless so STFU!

That's an unreasonable commute to make. That's 2 hours each way on days with minimal traffic.

I have associates in my office with ridiculously low utilization who refuse to commute down two floors to work on the federal side of our department's major clients...why is it so hard to fire people?

like

Why are people being asses to OP? I don't think there's anything wrong with what OP said. The situation of the associate is like complaining how he's so fat and disgusting but then continue to binge eat. People like that just annoys me. If you want higher utilization, you make yourself available to whatever. When you aren't top rated, you can't really pick and choose your work. People nowadays just think everything is other people's fault. People, if you want top rating, you work for it. I'm a millennial and even I understand this simple concept.

EY policy is you can get a hotel if your commute can add way to the client is 2+ hours. I've don the commute from central jersey to CT and it was miserable and took closer to 3 hours each way because of traffic getting into NY

That's ok PwC 2. Your inability to express your opinion on the issue other than with insults tells me all I need to know about you as well. So you're 3 yrs out of school and nowhere near as successful as you thought you'd be. No need to be salty toward others about it.

The bigger problem is our firms catering to lazy asses... how about instead of us hiring they flip some burgers at BK and then they start handing out some extra money to those of us that give a shit and are willing to work hard for a living? #thatswhatthemoney'sfor!!
