I have been working for one company for a bit over a year. The local manager (i.e. local to the city) never lasts more than 1 or 2 months. We are never given a reason why they quit or were fired. This can be a bit of a problem because at minimum each new manager has a different communication style. What does this say about the company?

  • Never having a manager that's familiar with your work and accomplishments makes end of year performance and salary discussions more difficult. Make sure you're keeping track of everything, not just the big things. – BSMP Sep 8 at 18:37

What does this say about the company?

Impossible to know, we would be guessing.

However, whatever this says about the company and whatever the true reasons where, I am positive that it's no good sign.

Generally, there are two reasons a person leaves: they quit, or they're fired.

Applying that to the situation you've laid out, there's two general possibilities:

  • The managers are quitting. Aka, the jobs stinks so badly that none of them are willing to do it for more than a few months.
  • The managers are rapidly being fired. Aka, either there's been a string of bad managers or the higher-ups are overly demanding for performance that nobody's been able to live up to.

Like DarkCygnus says, it's a bit tough to give a concrete answer when there's not really any info to go off of.
