Unless you are a spy or some shit, there is no reason to force you to carry two devices (so long as you are willing to accept your device being forced into a higher security mode with locking and remote wipe).

Go Millenials!!! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
Security policy across almost every industry is a joke. It is way more CYA than actual good sense. As an example, in my current job, I can't access gmail for fear I might send confidential material from a personal email. Yet, when I'm home and VPN in I can or I can get into webmail from home, or just use a flash drive.
Companies keep putting security measures in place that not only don't address the root cause of security leaks, they don't actual really fix the symptoms either. Almost all security breaches fall into one of these three categories:
1. Social engineering
2. Some kind of hack into software (SQL injection, etc)
3. Credit card skimmers, etc
Everywhere I go though, the security measures being implemented are things like encrypted drives, blocking email, etc. The ability to wipe a phone makes sense if it gets lost and a good precaution, but it isn't one the primary ways data is stolen or security is breached.
In my experience, the average millennial doen't know the first thing about IT security or actually most tech stuff. They know how to use their iPhone but they're clueless on actual CS/IT/engineering stuff that happens underneath or at an enterprise level. Is that a bad thing? No, not necessarily, but the blanket millennial statement is far from the truth (though, I'm sure you were joking).
