Youth in the workplace is a blessing and a curse. There's a fine line between being a go-getter and impetuousness.
The X and Y Generations have a particularly bad reputation for wanting it all now. But, as the Baby Boomers hit retirement age, companies increasingly have to look for its next group of leaders and that means putting some of those fresh faces on a career fast track.
A new CareerBuilder survey of more than 5,200 workers shows that is indeed happening - and that it's not without its problems. Forty-three percent of workers ages 35 and older said they currently work for someone younger than them. And more than half (53 percent) of workers ages 45 and up said they have a boss younger than them, followed by 69 percent of workers ages 55 and up.
