Why would a company fire the vast majority of its new hires?
Since May 2011 a small advertising firm of about 12 people has hired 3 Account Managers 1 Junior Account Manager 1 Data Analyst 1 Account Director And they have only kept 1 Account Manager. The rest were fired in the probationary period for not being the right "fit" or for being too "nervous". Most of these people were competent and were successful at previous positions and subsequent positions and their business development team was separate. It is just personal, a matter of fitting into the company culture?. I was one of the account managers and I would like to know how to avoid this mistake in the future.
