To be equally loathed by employees, customers, and the general public, a company really hasn't been taking care of its brand. Per Yahoo Finance, 24/7 Wall St. looked at American Customer Satisfaction Index surveys, worker diatribes on Glassdoor, and its own questionnaire to gauge which firms ranked lowest in customer satisfaction. It came up with a dozen companies at the bottom, the majority of which "had among the highest share of respondents reporting generally negative customer experiences." Sitting in the "winner's" spot at No. 1: Comcast, though the descriptor for that company acknowledges that "internet service provider and subscription television service industries are not known for superior customer service" overall. The five most-hated companies in the US:

  1. Comcast
  2. Bank of America
  3. Mylan
  4. McDonald's
  5. Wells Fargo
