These are the companies with the worst reputations, as voted on by the Ranker community. Anyone can add to this real-time ranking of hated companies known, not for getting it right, but for getting it wrong. Some of these are brands we love to hate because their products are questionable, and some are hated because they do loathsome things... but they have one thing in common: you don't think good things when you see them.

These are companies with the worst reputations across many different industries including financial, tech, and retail. They come from the US, the UK, and beyond. These are all brands with bad reputations because of the way they treat their workers, harm the environment or provide bad customer service. You probably would not want to work for these companies. Vote on the companies with the worst reputations and leave a not in the comments explaining why you feel that way.

What companies have the worst reputations? There are some pretty big companies on this list that don't have great reps.

Once it might have been tobacco companies, in other times, oil companies, and today fast food chains and those evil cable companies. Regardless of what these companies sell and do, they are known for not treating their customers well, and generally being just the worst.
