Most of Gen Y isn’t working for large companies.
The highest concentration of Gen Y workers are at small companies with less than 100 employees (47 percent), followed by medium companies that have between 100 and 1,500 employees (30 percent), and the fewest work in large companies with more than 1,500 employees (23 percent). Larger companies have hiring processes that last for months, while smaller ones only take a week or so. Gen Y likes startup companies because they can make a huge difference on day one, and there’s potential that it may turn into the next Facebook.
