Top Ten Most Greedy Companies


The Top Ten

1 EA EA Electronic Arts, Inc., also known as EA Games, is an American developer, marketer, publisher and distributor of video games headquartered in Redwood City, California.

Only worst company in America twice in a row, EA is a morally bankrupt, shady mid-tier video game publisher that is notorious for buying up smaller development teams and liquidating their assets. Fueled by rehashed annual sports releases bought by millions regardless of quality, EA is the the dark truth of what happens when a company has complete control over a particular market. Absolutely shameless, will resort to any and all means be they legal or questionable to exploit consumers and gamers alike.

They bought out many different game developers, re-released their beloved games as broken messes and shut the developers down because they didn't make enough money. Not to mention all the micro transactions they force gamers to use, essentially making most of their games pay-to-win. EA is run by greedy businessmen and investors who do not care about gamers, game developers or a finished product, only the money they'll make from them.

Don't give the resources the developers need to make the games, and they try to make more money with less content in their franchises. More greedy than them is impossible.

2 Apple

Apple intentionally makes their devices nearly impossible to repair by third parties, just to charge hundreds on a simple fix.

They over charge for everything and avoid paying tax.

Overpriced isn't the same thing as greedy. - LeetHaterz

Low quality high prices.

3 Microsoft Microsoft Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services.

They are so nickel and dime. They charge for Xbox Live and they charge for little things like changing your xbox gamer tag.

Xbox Live and the worst part is how other companies like Nintendo followed this trend

We took over a company. Meh. - PizzaGuy

4 Roblox

Roblox, powering your credit card. Parents money going to this, when they can actually buy FOOD.

So on Fortnite, you spend $20 on a skin. On Roblox, you spend thousands of dollars on small stuff like hats.

ROBLOX was better back then now its stupid.

Never buy Robux. If you do, then you are an idiot. - Smash64

5 Build-A-Bear Workshop Build-A-Bear Workshop

Sharon Price John is the epitome of everything a CEO shouldn't be: greedy, oblivious to the interests of the company's target demographic (kids), and willing to do anything to make a quick buck.

$20 for a stuffed bear?! what! - Smash64

They’re greedy alright, but they were at their worst when they set up an event called Pay Your Age Day, where so many kids and parents would form a crowd and fill up the stores as well as wrap around them, waiting many hours just to get a $1 discounted bear.
What’s so important about that?
It was chaos and people were complaining and even fighting, and so many people got heartbroken when the company decided to cancel the event because it was too crowded.
So many people who lined up to get a bear didn’t get one at all.
The company really wanted the money. - Gregory

6 Disney Disney The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

Disney does not care about you... Only your money. Their idea of a Gift is a discounted price. If you have played any of their online games you know this to be true. They will not even give "digital" Gifts (that cost them nothing). They over charge for in game credit so much, that a "free" game can cost you thousands of dollars. And don't even get me started on how they are destroying the Star Wars franchise. When I was a kid, the whole family would gather to watch Disney every Sunday. The music starts... You see the Castle and think "this is going to be good! ". That feeling is long gone. The fall of the Disney Empire can not come fast enough for me.

They're buying EVERYTHING!

After screwing up SW with their SJW BS,I lost any interest in something I loved for 30+ years.

Is FIFA a company? Isn't FIFA made by EA? - DapperPickle

9 Verizon

They love to make you think you have something great and yet they overcharge you and make make you pay for nothing at all. Annoying and stupid company.

After Net Neutrality was cancelled, this company should be in lawsuit. Ajit Pai should legit die

I agree. Verizon is a greedy company. This should be higher on the list.

This should be number 1.

The Contenders

11 Walmart Walmart

I don't really have a problem with their products and services, but I don't like what they do to the people that work for them. Over half of their workers with children live below the poverty line. But even worse, in 2013, a factory in Bangladesh collapsed EVEN when it was known the building was unsafe beforehand, and without telling the emloyees. Over ONE THOUSAND people died and Walmart refuses to compensate the victims. Now, there were other companies involved, but at least they compensated the families affected (except Sears). They could have fixed the building, but preferred to save some cash, and they have not compensated the victims. - aerochamber

12 LuLaRoe LuLaRoe
13 McDonald's

They're also the best at lying. I never eat at McDonalds. Their apples have chemicals, their fries are soggy, the chicken nuggets stink, and the burgers look like they've been stepped on. - PizzaGuy

Horrible greedy company!

Real Greedy CEO Restaurant Owners doesn't care about their crew employees.

16 Under Armour Under Armour Under Armour, Inc. is an American company that manufactures footwear, sports, and casual apparel. Under Armour's global headquarters are located in Baltimore, Maryland with additional offices located in Amsterdam, Austin, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Houston, Jakarta, London, Mexico City, Munich, New York more.

If you thought Under Armour had overpriced products, you should see North Face. - Smash64

17 Tesco

They won't even admit it when they hit a slump. They just have to remain strong all the time. - PositronWildhawk

Oh, well, I'm not a Brit, so I've never heard that Tesco's a greedy company! - PizzaGuy

18 Starbucks Starbucks Starbucks Corporation is an American coffee company and coffeehouse chain. Starbucks was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1971. Today it operates 23,768 locations worldwide, including 13,107 in the United States, 2,204 in China, 1,418 in Canada, 1,160 in Japan and 872 in South Korea.

There is no royalty with this company. They make you alone work when it is actually two people work. They schedule you whenever they want you to work based on your flexible availability. However, they cut your hours by sending you home early, schedule less hours, give late evening shift and early morning shift next day. If you are lazy, I guess it won't matter but if you are a hardworking person, you will be used, overworked, and taken advantage of this greedy company.

19 Activision Activision Activision Publishing, Inc. is an American video game publisher. It was founded on October 1, 1979 and was the world's first independent developer and distributor of video games for gaming consoles.

Supply drops and microtransactions in general... most greediest pigs ever

Black ops pass seriously Activision I shouldn’t even have to say anything and I’m not.

Activision is the worst of the worst people don't realise that when a game price goes up it is Activision who is the first who did it one example nearly all games cost 59.98€ for pc now for each company and Activision now asks not 59.98€ this year for there 2 new games Destiny 2 and Call of Duty WWII cost you to buy it in europe 64.98€ that is a console price not a pc price and don't forget next year all other companys wil ask for the same price when Activision starts to ask more money the next year all other companys want to have a part from that 64.98€ price tag and wil ask 64.98€ for there games bekous Activision did sukseed in selling thos 2 new games at that high price and all companys think if Activision can sell for the price of 64.98€ than we can do the same thing I want activision to go bankrupt this needs to stop

23 Nintendo Nintendo Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and software company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan.

So I guess copyright strikes on free fan-made games dedicated to them isn't greedy when Nintendrones say it, am I right? I mean granted no other company is pure-hearted and game companies often add in microtransactions and overpriced DLC for the sake of money, but at least they are optional. However, once your fan-made game that you worked so hard for gets taken down, then you lose it all. So please tell me, which one is greedier, microtransactions and DLC that are optional, or copyright strikes that take away your entire project? - SelfDestruct

It's there game, and they have a copyright sign next to the titles, stupid - bjinmaro64

Who let's you buy a console then charges you extra to be able to charge it

29 AT&T

Greed to me is a company that makes billions of dollars and doesn't share the wealth. I'm so sick of living pay check to pay check. Big businesses can easily afford to pay there employees more money. They choose not to. That is greed. Hard working American's dreams are locked up inside a bank vault.
