While boomers enjoy their well-deserved (cough, eyeroll, cough) retirement in 200 square meter houses with pools and stuff—after all, they are the ones taking advantage of the current housing market boom—millennials are trying to maintain their office job that’s barely leading anywhere. Definitely not to homeownership, since home values in the US soared by 31.2% in two years, making that already distant dream basically impossible. And when Adidas says impossible is nothing, let me tell you, some things really are.

So let’s get back to that office job that gives you barely enough money for your daily fix of bio avocados (you gotta get those healthy fats!), Sunday hangover food, nice skin moisturizer, and Amazon prime account. If it keeps you awake at night, you are not alone. Corporate Millennial Anxiety is a real thing, and the sooner it's recognized, the sooner we will be able to help our lost souls.

Thankfully, there’s a safe space to talk about hard millennial things, aka work, shifts, overtime, balance, payroll, career (who even invented that word!), job stress-induced weight gain and dark undereye circles. Welcome to the account of the most painfully accurately and brutally funny corporate millennial memes which goes by the same name as the diagnosis of my fellow generation—“Corporate Millennial Anxiety.”

Bored Panda reached out to Alane Rebecca, the creator behind the Corporate Millennial Anxiety memes account, to find out more about the project. Alane describes herself as a “quintessential 90's nostalgia-loving millennial who continues to grasp at every last bit of my youth.” She added that she treats her dogs like kids and still quotes Mean Girls daily.

 “I posted my very first meme on the Corporate Millennial Anxiety account on December 14th, 2020. The account was born out of a text conversation with one of my favorite coworkers. We were both adapting to working from home, to cope she and I would send each other funny work-related Tik Toks and memes,” the creator recounted.

She continued: “One day she jokingly texted, ‘You should start a viral Instagram account’, to which I responded ‘Say less’. I created the account, began posting and it blew up. The account grew at a shocking rate and I had 10K followers within 2 weeks.”

And if not everyone does it, the votes will remain 100% anonymous so there is no peer pressure. Great idea.

Given the amount of scam calls these days, I do this as well. I take the view that if it's important then they can leave a voicemail

Alane said that at that point in time a lot of millennials hadn't joined Tik Tok yet, “so I think my reposting of millennial and work-related Tik Toks to a social media platform that millennials were already engaged on created something novel within that demographic,” she explained.

When selecting the post to share, Alane said she always looks for content that makes her say "It's me". “If it resonates with me, it will most likely resonate with my follower base.”

This one strikes a cord. I dream of leaving it all for a simple job and going back to my island, but I still fell that subconcious pressure for achievements and carreer. Like we are worth as much as our job which is soooo wrong! Damn you capitalism!

According to the author of the Corporate Millennial Anxiety Instagram account, even though the world was in the midst of a pandemic, the expectations of corporate employees remained the same. “I think we were all just stuck working from home with a lot of time and not a lot of work-life balance. I think everyone's mental health took a massive toll throughout 2020. I think my light-hearted, but sarcastic humor resonated with many millennials working in corporate America.”

But “sharing relatable content about feeling anxious or struggling with the dreaded "imposter syndrome", made people feel less alone throughout the ups and downs of the pandemic,” Alane explained.

After having seen so many millennial memes and jokes, Alane believes that “what stands out the most about my generation is that we don't take ourselves too seriously. Many of us have delightfully dark and self-deprecating humor. We aren't afraid to laugh at ourselves when we do something stupid.”

Moreover, “I know millennials have a reputation for being too soft, but I strongly disagree with that idea. I think we are a compassionate and resilient generation that is not afraid to ask for help or make a bold decision like leaving a steady job because it's toxic,” she concluded.

In my company you are expected to sign up for finance/technical courses in order for you to increase your expertise. You sign up, go through mind-melting demagogic storm of corporate slang, understand 10% of what they "taught" you, then end up with 40% more work and additional tasks on top of what you were already struggling with. Catch is, you get nothig extra because the higher paid positions are already taken and there is a queue behind each one. But hey, my company wants me to show personal development desire?
