Top 10 Most Evil Companies of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Monsanto

What needs to be said, except how are they not number one? Formed at the start of the last century, they are still going strong, even after producing PCBs and dioxin, and greatly affecting war veterans and Vietnamese children. They had to radically transform to survive toward the end of the century. You start to see that "justice" must be a joke.

Monsanto is a corporation known to falsify reports in order to obtain approval for whatever they are currently manufacturing. They did so with Agent Orange and PCBs, so it can evidently be surmised that they probably also did so with the GMO reports they submitted to the FDA for approval. However, they have not yet been caught, so it cannot be proven yet.

This is the center of all evil companies. Every time I tell someone at my school, they always say, We don't give a shit. We need to stop eating genetically modified food and march against them because they don't care about you. They only care about their money. Once I went to Tesco, my life changed when I saw a label on a Snickers bar that said it was genetically modified. I have now stopped eating Snickers.

2 Nestlé

Just look up what they did. If you're too lazy to do so, they stole water from places that desperately needed it and participated in human trafficking. I still like KitKats and Smarties. I just hate the corporation itself. You can like something that someone has made but hate the person who made it. It's not a sin to like Adolf Hitler's paintings, for example.

What more is there to say? They steal water and sell it back to those they steal from. They use child labor for their cocoa supply for products like Kit-Kat. This is my number one most evil company ever.

These people have no soul. Ask the poor people of Flint who fell victim to their greed. They will steal your water and sell it back to you, then try to get taxpayers to pay for a water plant to solve their legal problems. It all backfired, and they poisoned the citizens of Flint. To look like the good guys, they handed out water.

3 Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company that specializes in consumer electronics, software and online services headquartered in Cupertino, California, United States. Apple is the largest technology company by revenue (totaling US $365.8 billion in 2021) and as of May 2022, and, as of June 2022, is the world's biggest company by market capitalization, the fourth-largest personal... read more

Horrible factory conditions in China. Not to mention, the only change they make to each iPhone is perhaps an extra camera.

They create the illusion of being "the ones who are right when everyone else is wrong," even though they have made countless mistakes (unless those were intentional too).

Sheep-like devices, plus the day will come when the environmental damage is so severe that my favorite YouTuber (T_StreakMLP) loses one of their waifus - in this case, Earth-chan.

4 Build-A-Bear Workshop

They let children buy stuffed bears.

The biggest problem arose in July 2018 when they set up a promotion called Pay Your Age. In this promotion, kids and parents could buy a stuffed bear at a steep discount. When the event took place, people formed incredibly long lines, stretching a mile long in some stores.

In some locations, people waited in line for over nine hours just to get stuffed bears. Chaos, fighting, and riots ensued. After all those hours, the company shut the event down, leaving everyone depressed.

Who would want to waste so much of their day waiting to get a bear, only to be let down? It was essentially Black Friday all over again.

The workshop tried to make amends, but the complaints persisted, and people will never forget.

They told me that non-binary didn't exist when I went there to make my bear, and I wanted to put non-binary. It offended me a lot.

Sharon is a disgusting woman who shut down Bearville, a game many of us loved. Thankfully, this company is easy to boycott.

5 BP

Birds remain covered in oil to this day. Did they clean up their mess? Only until people stopped watching closely. Then it's back to business as usual, with dubious ethics and safeguards against their product's effect on the world we all live in.

Oil spoils the heart.

6 Walmart

It destroys history.

7 McDonald's

It's almost like they're competing to be the most evil on purpose. They torture animals, take far too long for callbacks when they know they're selling contaminated food - resulting in children dying - and pass off garbage as 'healthy food.' For instance, salads often contain more calories than their burgers. They also pump their meat full of antibiotics. The sad thing is, I could go on for a long time. I'm not an activist. McDonald's is the only company I actually boycott.

McDonald's is way too unhealthy for any human being or animal alike. Their food is 300+ calories. Compare that to other fast-food giants like Wendy's, Burger King, or Carl's Jr. (known as Hardee's in other areas). Sure, they're unhealthy, but their food has fewer calories than this grease trap. Wake up, Mickey D's! You're getting outperformed by Burger King, for goodness' sake!

KelseyPower out!

When you see a 300-pound person in the USA, you can already guess it is because of McDonald's. The company offers extremely unhealthy foods and uses false advertising to make it seem healthy when it is a significant reason for obesity.

8 Amway
9 Dow Chemical

Dow Chemical is the parent company of Union Carbide, the corporation responsible for the Bhopal Gas Tragedy that exposed nearly 500,000 people to toxic gases. It was the biggest industrial disaster, and they paid $0.00 in compensation. The CEO responsible escaped from India to his home country, the USA, and could never be extradited to face trial in India due to his lobbying efforts in the US. He's dead now and is probably serving time in hell.

What does Dow Chemical have to do with Dracula? The former was established in 1897, while the latter has been stuck in copyright limbo since 1897, thanks to Bram Stoker. And they both suck!

This wretched company also conducted medical experiments on slaves in the US after purchasing them solely for that reason.

10 Comcast

Horrible Internet service provider. Xfinity is terrible. You pay $300 a month, and they still won't let you skip the 4-6 ads they play On Demand.

Outrageous prices! I paid $10 more than I would have for Verizon. Their voice remote doesn't work right.

They price-gouge customers and offer extremely poor customer service.

The Contenders
11 Bayer

They sold the chemicals used to kill Jews to the Nazis and now own Monsanto.

Remember, they own Monsanto. Together, they first make you sick, and then treat you, making money by selling you aspirin.

12 Amazon, commonly known as Amazon, is an American electronic commerce and cloud computing company that was founded on July 5, 1994, by Jeff Bezos and is based in Seattle, Washington.

This should be the most evil company. It should be number 1. I've talked to publishers, FBA sellers, and others, and they all have been robbed of inventory, books, money, payouts, royalties, and so much more. These people break the law left and right, evade taxes like no one else, and harm everyone by monopolizing markets, promoting brutal competition, bullying other companies, promoting explicit sexual content in their audiobooks, lying to their sellers and customers, inventing a corrupt, fake review system, and spying on kids with Alexa software. (They got sued for that. Look it up.) Why do you think this guy is the richest person on earth? It's no coincidence.

We all know that they are evil. They are cruel to their workers and refuse to pay taxes. Jeff Bezos believes that the Hunger Games is an ideal scenario. Having a wealth gap between employees and top-level management that is so large - especially at a time when your company is one of only a handful that turned a profit due to a global pandemic - is more than a red flag.

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

They aim to monopolize at the expense of creating products of quality. Their goal isn't to attract customers with valuable items, but to eliminate competition so that their own products are all the consumer can access - and they'd better like it. They acquire anything with a hint of creativity or innovation, stifle its uniqueness, and transform it into consumerist garbage designed solely to turn a profit through mass appeal, with no uniqueness.

In the past decade, they have changed their business model to focus on microtransactions. These are after-sales purchases meant to provide extra enjoyment or value. Their games have evolved accordingly, transitioning from titles based on cutting-edge graphics and development to games designed to entice players into making these microtransactions.

EA's flagship FIFA series is the prime example, where the core gameplay has been heavily scripted to frustrate gamers into spending money to improve their teams. This is done via a virtual slot machine, where the gamer has no idea what they will receive in return for their money. Much like any casino, they often offer special deals and freebies for logging in each day - EA's version of the free buffet.

This is a company that is grooming children for an online gambling habit. They are the Big Tobacco of the 21st century.

14 Google Google is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.

It's always the same: "Power corrupts," and you know the rest. For years now, Google has been filtering out and stifling conservative opinion while promoting progressive opinions through its search results. Anyone who thinks Google is providing them with an unbiased source of information is sadly mistaken. I don't care if you are on the left or the right, but don't you think you should at least be able to make up your own mind by seeing an unbiased list of search results?

Google continues to promote fake news through its biased searches. It's hilarious how they did everything in their power to help Hillary but still couldn't stop DJT from becoming president. Thank God for some of the best jobs numbers of all time. And get ready for the second-quarter GDP numbers. I can't wait for four more years of Trump after the 2020 reelection!

The company is anti-competitive and steals your data to sell it to others. This is how they make money unethically.

15 Viacom Viacom is a global entertainment content company that specializes in television, film, and digital media. Founded in 1952, the company is headquartered in New York City and owns a variety of media networks including MTV, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central. Viacom also holds Paramount Pictures, a major film studio. The company focuses on creating and distributing high-quality content across multiple platforms... read more

They're the reason why Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1, and many other television networks are so bad. They're a multimillion- or multibillion-dollar company that manipulates smaller networks into being taken over. They really don't care about people's entertainment - at least, I think that wasn't their mission until recently. They care about money! And it's not just TV networks. This goes for online services and maybe even technology! Just look at what they did to Neopets! They're a corporation that must be stopped, and we need to talk about them more in order to stop them. But until then, they'll keep ruining our entertainment, and with all the money in their pockets, it's nearly impossible to stop them.

They don't care about their employees. They only care about suing, or threatening others if they stand up for themselves, and protecting their financial interests. The only time people's voices worked was when they received terrible publicity in NYC for wanting to take away benefits from permalance employees. The employees went on strike outside Viacom headquarters, attracting news organizations, and the bad publicity made them decide against taking away the benefits.

16 Rothschild & Co

The Rothschilds are controlling the whole world economy, and they are part of the Illuminati. It's no surprise why this organization is one of the most evil.

17 Pearson Education

These people are responsible for every searing migraine I've had due to bad programs or horrible standardized tests. Burn in hell, Pearson. I still finished, even though you didn't want me to.

Go to hell, you ugly people! Eliminate standardized testing from schools. Stop killing individuality!

Standardized testing is not a good way for students to learn. Not very evil, but not so good either.

18 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 has made more bad movies than any other movie company. Seriously, they ruin everything they get their hands on. Star Wars? Down the drain. Pixar? An exclusive sequel producer. Disneytoons? Destroyed. Disneynature? Starting to become oversaturated and soon to be wrecked.

They can't even keep their greedy hands off their classics by remaking all of them! They didn't produce a single original movie in 2018. Disney is lucky that all but two of their releases that year were rated fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Almost all of their movies are remakes, sequels, prequels, spin-offs, or based on other media. Don't even get me started on the fact that they have 11 theme parks. They also sell, like, a billion toys everywhere. I'm honestly just holding out hope they don't ruin Marvel.

Disney has essentially ruined most of their franchises. Although I didn't care much for DisneyNature, their greed led them to run Blue Sky out of business. Then they made a terrible Ice Age movie that nobody asked for. How greedy can they get?

Additionally, they canceled genuinely good TV shows like Kim Possible, That's So Raven, Zack and Cody, and The Proud Family. They also abandoned several good movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Lilo & Stitch, and every other Pixar movie they co-created. Disney has transformed from a company that produced amazing shows into a group of money-hungry executives who discontinue all the good stuff for no apparent reason. If they ruin Marvel, my perception of the franchise will never be the same.

20 Exxon Mobil

Exxon Mobil probably deserves one of the top spots. The company exploits the Earth's resources at any cost and shows no remorse for oil spills and the ecological damage they cause.

21 Chase Manhattan
22 Lockheed Martin

Investors make a killing.

23 AT&T AT&T is an American telecommunications company that provides a broad array of services including mobile telephony, broadband, and television services. Founded in 1885, AT&T has grown to be one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world. The company focuses on delivering reliable, high-quality communication services to both consumers and businesses. AT&T aims to be a leader in technology... read more

It's not about providing good service or even about paying their employees a fair wage. It's about collecting data to resell, buying out competitors, destroying unions, providing golden parachutes for upper management, and barely appeasing OSHA and the FCC. No matter who you are, you are disposable, and unless you're a lawyer, you don't stand a chance.

Overworks employees, sets unrealistic quotas for them to meet, dehumanizes employees and their families, and creates schedules that do not allow for family time.

Refuses to invest in infrastructure, yet requests exorbitant amounts of money for slow internet. Phone service is slightly better, though.

24 LuLaRoe

LuLaRoe is a horrendous pyramid scheme that, although only several years old, has proven itself nearly as evil as Amway and Herbalife. The 2017 lawsuit should have been the nail in the coffin, but their brainwashed "distributors" are what keep the company alive. The fact that you have to pay up to $6,000 before joining speaks volumes about this awful company.

Not to mention that it's literally classified as a pyramid scheme by the Direct Selling Association, a questionable group that counts numerous MLMs (including Amway and Herbalife) among its members. You know your company is doing something wrong when even literal Amway supporters can tell that it is a scam.

25 Corrections Corporation of America

Largest owner and operator of private prisons and detention centers in the US. Has lobbyists promote laws that lead to higher incarceration and immigration policies that result in mass detention. This is a direct quote from its disclosure to investors:

"The demand for our facilities and services could be adversely affected by the relaxation of enforcement efforts, leniency in conviction or parole standards and sentencing practices or through the decriminalization of certain activities that are currently proscribed by our criminal laws. For instance, any changes with respect to drugs and controlled substances or illegal immigration could affect the number of persons arrested, convicted, and sentenced, thereby potentially reducing demand for correctional facilities to house them."
