Alec Levenson speaks about millennials and work-life balance in Bloomberg Businessweek

But that may change as they get older, he says, noting that high unemployment and massive student debt loads have a way of turning work-life idealists into pragmatists.

"There will always be those extremely driven to go for the brass ring and do whatever it takes to get it," says Levenson. "And there will always be people who say, 'I don't need that.'"
