there's no respect
i'm an older worker now and people think you don't know anything because you don't know about the latest xyz.
truth be told, I don't know about the latest xyz because i've seen that type of thing before and it had limited market appeal and folded after 5 years
the less experienced generally see initial benefits
the more experienced generally see initial benefits, long term issues, growth pathways and so on.
getting from 25 yo to 50 yo doesn't take long, you should always have your ears open ready to learn and always treat people respectfully.
