According to a survey of 11,500 conducted by LinkedIn, 68 percent of millennials would sacrifice a friendship with a colleague if it meant they’d get a promotion.

Contrarily, 62 percent of baby boomers aged 55 to 65 said they would never.

The survey suggests that lots of millennials don’t see friendships at work beyond anything more than “purely functional.”

A third of millennials felt that socializing with colleagues just helped them move up the career ladder while only 5 percent of boomers felt the same.

However, 30 percent of millennials also said workplace friendships make them feel happy, and half said these friendships motivated them.

More than half of millennials said they kept in touch with former coworkers, too.

So, if you’re feeling suspicious of Becky, that girl who sits in the desk next to you and always takes hours to email you the notes from the meeting, you have a third of a chance of your suspicions being right: She’s totally trying to get you fired.
