Working life - terrible mindset of younger generation

Twenties are the time when most of us take up our first jobs. Even though it’s great to finally start earning and ‘be on your own’, corporate life is nothing like we imagine it to be in our younger years. It’s stressful and unrewarding. Here are 18 harsh truths about corporate life nobody will ever tell you.

1. The more efficient you are at your work, the more you will be burdened with it.
- what a sad way to look at work
- the more efficient I am, the higher I climb

2. Nobody cares about your individual progress in the corporate world. All that matters is what you contribute to the company.
- of course, you are hired to improve the company, not yourself

3. There will come a time when you will take up a job just for the money and nothing else.
- agree

4. Desk jobs kill creativity.
- yes, let's blame it on the job. own self not creative, blame it on surroundings

5. Very often, you will be held accountable for tasks that weren’t even your responsibility in the first place.
- so? speak up, stand up for yourself

6. You will be dealing with a dozen tasks other than what you were initially hired for. Your scope of work will only keep increasing.
- you are hired to work, not honeymoon or to laze around

7. You will be constantly made to believe you need the company more than it needs you, and that, is not always true.
- .
8. Meetings are a waste of time. Always. Nothing good has ever come out of them, really. Most people aren’t listening, and the ones talking are far away from reality.
- instead of complaining, blaming others, why don't you do something to change it

9. If you’re sluggish, you’ll be ridiculed by your boss. If you’re proactive, you’ll be hated by your colleagues.
- only if you're colleagues are useless. Good colleagues bring each other up

10. Your needs as an employee would go completely ignored, sometimes. You won’t get what you really deserve until you raise your voice and put your foot down.
- your needs are ignored because you are a lazy ass and are a liability to the company

11. You will be made to work with uninspired people and it will be the most difficult task ever. Your team-mates would neither be of any help, nor would they make it possible for you take everything in your own hands, and it will kill your passion.
- yes, you are the best, others are useless. Blame it on others

12. People around will constantly pull you down with their cynicism solely because they hate your guts.
- yes, you are the best, others are useless. Blame it on others

13. Nobody is going to appreciate you staying in extra hours every single day but the one time you leave a little early, hell will break lose.
- so? Why do you care about what these 'problematic' non creative people think of you?

14. Whichever new initiatives you volunteer for, become your responsibility.
- of course. otherwise everyone would be shooting their mouth off

15. The HR Department is useless, wherever you go.
- .

16. Office politics is definitely not a myth.
- and mostly caused by you, thinking others are beneath you

17. But meritocracy is. There will be times when undeserving people will get credit for the work you do, simply because they are higher up on the corporate ladder.
- and because you just whine on internet instead of speaking up for yourself

18. Half of your time will be spent in sending out unnecessary mails that will never even be read to countless people who want to feel important, before you can actually start working. And more often than not, you will end up doing everything yourself.
- emails are deemed unnecessary until something goes wrong.
