Top 10 Most Evil Companies of All Time
What needs to be said? Except how are they not no. 1?! Formed at the start of last century, and 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 century's end... You start to see that "justice" must be a joke!
Monsanto is a corporation that is 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 that they submitted to the FDA to get approval. Only they have not yet been caught so it can not be proven yet.
This is the centre off all evil companies. every time I tell someone at my school they always say 'we don't give a s***' we need to stop eating genetically modified food and march against them because they don't care about you they only care about there money. once I went to Tesco and my life changed when there was a label on a snickers bar and it said genetically modified on it I have now stopped eating snickers.
Monopolizing farms so they can force farms to produce quickly for companies like McDonald's. Their goal is to literally make sure we prioritize production over health. They want everyone to know and agree with their philosophy.
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 KitKat 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 to say? They steal water and sell it back to those they steal from. They use child labor for their cocoa supply for such 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 the 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!
Nestle's promotion of infant formula to developing countries has demonstrably led to malnutrition and an unaccountable loss in terms of DALYs. Add Nestle's self-admitted involvement in child labour and slavery in Thailand and Cote d'Ivoire, the toxic contamination of groundwater in Pakistan, production of heavy metal infused instant noodles in India, its unashamed dealing with dictators like Mugabe in Zimbabwe, and general promotion of unhealthy garbage worldwide to name just a few other issues, and you have a very serious contender for the title of World's Most Evil Company, right up there with the likes of Monsanto and Dow Chemicals.
Horrible factory conditions in China. Not to mention the only thing they change about each iPhone is maybe an extra camera.
The make the illusion of them being "the ones who are right when everyone else is wrong" even though they have made countless mistakes (unless those were on purpose too).
Sheep devices, plus the day will come when it gets so environmentally damaging my favourite YouTuber (T_StreakMLP) loses one of their waifus...in this case, Earth-chan.
Microsoft will rise back up to take down this evil corporation with the HoloLens.
They let children buy stuffed bears.
The biggest problem was that in July 2018, they set up a promotion called Pay Your Age, where kids and parents would buy a stuffed bear for a very low discount.
When it happened, people formed lines that were really long, a mile long in some stores.
And in some stores, people waited in line over 9 hours, and that's just to get stuffed bears.
There was chaos, fighting and riots, and after all those whole hours, the company shut the event down, leaving everyone depressed.
Who would want to waste their time waiting much of the day to get a bear only to be let down?
It was basically Black Friday all over again.
The workshop tried to make it up to them, but everyone complained and will never forget.
They said non binary didn't exist when I went there to make my bear and I wanted to put non binary and 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.
This company helped make teddy bears for Hitler. Pure evil.
Birds remain covered in oil to this day. They cleaned 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.
It destroys history
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. (Hardee's in other areas), sure they're unhealthy but their food has less calories than this grease trap.
Wake up, Mickey D's! You're getting your ass kicked by Burger King for gosh's sake!
when you see a 300 pound person in the USA, you can already guess it is because of Mcdonalds. Extremely unhealthy foods which use false advertisement to make it seem healthy when it is a sole reason for obesity.
It's almost like they're competing for being the most evil on purpose. Torturing animals, waiting waay to long for callbacks when they KNOW they're selling contaminated food, resulting in children dying, passing garbage off as 'healthy food' (salads often contain more calories than their burgers), pumping 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 boycot.
I've worked hero for half a year, I just recently quit, and I can say my experience was awful. It was terrible, quite honestly I'm never working fast food again, under any circumstances.
Parent company of Union Carbide, the corporation responsible for Bhopal Gas Tragedy that killed nearly 500,000 people to toxic gases. The biggest industrial disaster and they paid $0.00 compensation. The CEO responsible escaped from India to his home country USA, could never be extradited to face trial in India because of his lobbying in the US. He's dead now and probably serving in hell.
What does Dow Criminal have to do with Dracula? The former was established in 1897, 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.
Chemicals which are super hazardous? Yep this is the company you can blame for environmental issues.
Horrible Internet service provider. Xfinity is horrible, you pay $300 a month, and they still wont let you skip the 4-6 ads they play On Demand.
Outrageous prices! Paid $10 more than I would have for Verizon. There voice remote doesn't work right
Price gouges customers. Extremely poor customer service.
They have a desire to monopolize at the expense of creating products of any quality. Their goal isn't to lure customers with items of value, but to suck the well dry of competition so that their own swill is all that the consumer can drink, and they better like it. They will buy up anything with a whiff of creativity or innovation that they can, stifle its whimsy, and reduce it into consumerist garbage designed solely to turn a profit through mass-appeal and no uniqueness.
One of the worst video game companies in America. they make the same game of FIFA and other franchises every year and charge a stupid 60 dollars for it.
In the past decade they have changed their business model to focus on micro transactions. These are after sales purchases which are meant to provide extra enjoyment or value. Their games have changed with them, from titles based on leading edge graphics and development, to games scripted to entice players to make these micro transactions.
EA's Flagship FIFA series is the prime example where the core gameplay has been so heavily scripted so as to frustrate gamers into spend money to improve their teams. This is done via a virtual pokie/slot machine where the gamer has no clue as to what they will get for their money. Of course 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 kiddies for an online gambling habit. The Big Tobacco of the 21st century.
They take pleasure in acquiring your former favourite game companies, draining their life force, and throwing them away as feeble shells of what they once were. They also enjoy turning the greatest game series into glorified slot machines, especially if they can release it on mobile. The only company where it is more ethical to pirate their games than to buy them.
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 and make $$$$ selling you aspirin
It's always the same. "Power corrupts..." and you know the rest. For years now, Google has been filtering out and stifling conservative opinion and promoting progressive opinions through its search results. Anyone who thinks Google is giving them 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 in its completely bias searches. It's hilarious how they did everything in their power to help Hitlery but still couldn't stop DJT from becoming president. And thank God. Some of the best jobs numbers of all time. And get ready for the 2nd qt GDP numbers. I can't wait for 4 more years of Trump after the 2020 reelection!
Anti-Competitive and steals your data and sells it to others... This is how they make money evilly...
They're obsessed with parenting and children and are manipulating them to buy their products.
We all know that they are evil. They are cruel to the workers. They refuse to pay taxes. Jeff Bezos has the opinion that the Hunger Games is an ideal scenario. A wealth gap between employees and the top-level that is so large, especially in a time when your company is one of a only a handful that turned a profit thanks to a global pandemic, is more than a red flag.
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 other, and screw everyone by monopolizing markets, brutal competition, bullying other companies, promoting explicit sexual content in their audiobooks, lying to their sellers and customers, inventing a corrupt, fake review system, spying on kids with Alexa software (they got sued for that, look it up), and so much more. Why do you think this guy is the richest person on earth? It's no coincidence.
Why is Amazon number 54 and Build a Bear Workshop number 2? People on this website have very strange reasoning. Jeff Bezos is an evil billionaire who makes the median annual Amazon salary every few seconds. Actually, the problem is capitalism, which created all these evil companies.
Site is awful. You are quicker to get ripped off on Amazon faster than eBay because most items either have a stock image or none at all.
They're the reason why Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1, and many other television networks are so bad. They're a multimillion or MULTIBILLION company who manipulates lower networks into being taken over. They really don't care about the people's entertainment (at least I think that wasn't their mission until recently). They care about money! And it's not just T.V. networks, that goes for online services and maybe technology also! Just look what they did to Neopets! They're a corporation that must be stopped and a corporation that must be talked about 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!
The 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 the peoples voice worked was when they got terrible publicity in NYC when they wanted to take away benefits to permalance employees. The employees went on a strike outside Viacom headquarters with news organizations and the bad publicity made them decide against taking away the benefits.
Remember the time Viacom sued YouTube years ago? I've heard that Viacom secretly uploaded their own content onto the site while continuing to complain about it in order to tip the case in their favor.
Then again, I'm pretty sure they were also responsible for the broken copyright system the site has, and Viacom and other companies exploited it multiple times over the years to take down videos they disagree with.
When I worked there in the mid 2000's, they fired whole departments before Christmas every year and then these people had to leave that day and could not even go to the yearly Christmas party. Side bar, In NY, they do put on a good party though. They do not care about their employees.
These bastards are responsible for every searing migraine I've had because of 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 bastards! Get standardized testing out of schools. Stop killing individuality!
Standardized testing is just not a good way for students to learn. Not very evil, but not so good
They have customer support? Even when you pay for it? NOT.
Disney basically ruined most of their franchises, even though I didn't care about DisneyNature, they basically became so greedy with money that they ran Blue Sky out of business, then made a godawful Ice Age movie that NOBODY asked for! How greedy can they get? Oh yeah, they canceled actually good TV shows like Kim Possible, That's So Raven, Zack And Cody, The Proud Family and abandoned multiple good movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Lilo & Stitch, every other Pixar movie they co-created, Disney turned into a company that makes awesome shows to money-hungry executives discontinuing all the good stuff for no reason, and they better not ruin Marvel either, because if they do, I'll never see Marvel the same way again.
That thing you used to love, that took risks and was rewarded for them with cultural significance? That thing that no longer has a soul after being sucked dry by its new owners? Thank you Disney.
Disney had made more bad movies than any other movie company. I mean, seriously, they ruin everything they get their hands on. Star Wars: down the drain. Pixar: Exclusively sequel producer. Disneytoons: Destroyed. Disneynature: Starting to be oversaturated, soon to be wrecked. They couldn't even keep their greedy hands off their classics, by remaking all of them! They didn't make a single original movie in 2018. Disney's lucky all but 2 of their haul that year were fresh on rotten tomatoes. I mean, almost all of their movies are remakes, sequels, prequels, spinoffs, 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.
That's right! Disney! Having been a staple of the early (and modern) animation business since the '20s, Disney's managed to remain a household name to this day. But to be honest, how could it not? The Walt Disney Corporation is, in layman's terms, a cash cow. A legal license to print money, as some may say. In fact, Disney and its subsidiaries managed to pull in a whopping 13 billion in the year 2014 alone. Now, some may ask, "How does Disney make such money through movies, T.V. shows, and theme parks? " To answer it in short, it doesn't. In order to understand this, we must first take a BIG step back to get a full view. Sure, Disney may have been built on the remains of Laugh-O-Gram Films. And sure Disney may have relied on animation and studio works for revenue, but S#! T has changed. In under a century, Disney grew from small (yet notable) animation studio to multi-billion dollar mass media Empire. And with the opening of Disneyland, the beginning of a corporate nightmare looms on ...more
Probably deserves one of the top spots. Exploits the earth's resources at any cost. No remorse for oil spills and ecological damage caused by them
It's not about providing good service, it's not even about paying their employees a fair wage, it's about collecting data to resell, buying out competitors, destroying unions, golden parachutes for upper management and and just 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 employees to meet, dehumanizes employees and their families, schedule does not allow for family time.
Refuses to invest on infrastructure, yet request stupid amounts of money for slow internet. Phone service is slightly better though.
Also owns everything including Warner Bros. Directv. HBO. Turner broadcast system.
Investors make a killing
LuLaRoe is a horrendous pyramid scheme that, while only several years old, has proven itself nearly as evil as Amway and Herbalife. The 2017 lawsuit should've been the nail in the coffin, but their brainwashed "distributors" are what keeps the company alive. The fact that you have to pay up to $6,000 before joining says enough about this awful company.
Not to mention that it's literally classified as a pyramid scheme by the Direct Selling Association, an awful group that counts numerous MLMs (including Amway and Herbalife) amongst its members.
You know your company is doing something wrong when literal Amway supporters can tell that it is a scam.
