They are good as they keep learning in their work but not just sitting and writing boring. Therefore, when you offer them boring work (work that no challenge or achievement), they will get restless and this can take them out the door.
Take time to talk with them and make sure that they’re working on projects that are at an appropriate level of difficulty and that are holding their interest.
