I was fired last week from ACN a day after being back from a one year mission abroad. I was a really cold mail invite for a f2f about personal development from an MD. He walks in and just says that I was not performing well and hence they were letting go of me. I was surprised because: A) I had a consistent with peers rating for the last two years B) I got 0 credits for the fact that they dumped me on a blueprint project abroad which was supposed to last two months but took a year.
In hindsight it was possible to have seen this coming since I had to cancel my ACN university in Chicago three times for chargeability issues ACN wide (fyi personally I was at 105%). There were 0 opportunities in my home country published on the internal site and due to me being abroad the whole time I had no visibility.
A couple of thoughts:
- is this common practice at ACN? (anyone else experience this)
- Do you tell other companies that you have been fired when applying there? (if not what do you tell?
I am a little down because of the fact that I sacrificed a lot personally and getting treated like this feels a little off.
