Farm Team


Farm Team
A baseball reference applied to businesses that train employees only to have them leave for competing firms. A farm team typically has non-ideal practices that cause high employee turnover - often to bigger and more prestigious companies.

Like sport farm teams, these companies fully train the employees only to have them leave to work for another company. Being a farm team for your competitors will often, over time, lead to the destruction of the business.
