  1. I'm not sure I have ever seen a thread on here where someone discusses the merits of their company. There's a lot of bad-mouthing toward just about any company on here.
    I'm curious to see who the SJer's think is the worst and why.

    Hagadone needs to be on this list. Trust me. You can even ask Doc if you don't believe me.

    CNHI gets a vote.

    These idiots manage to keep the worst philosophies of the Thomson era while pinching pennies and lying to their employees. They have no qualms about lying about benefits and raises. They've underfunded most of their purchases, and then they try to balance the books on the backs of their employees.

    I've worked for four of these companies, and there is no, no, NO contest. None.

    If you haven't worked for the company in question, you have no idea. Maybe a little, based on what you read, but you really have no idea. Really, you don't.

    I still work at this place, which is a "family paper", so I will leave it nameless. But how's this for horrible: 2 percent raises a year max ( the first two years I got 1.9, so you know Im busting my ass this year for that extra tenth), 26 cents a mile (this is in California by the way) and a $25 gift card to a grocery store for holiday bonus. Plus, when I won an APSE award, the GM came into the sports department on a day I wasn't working and congratulated someone else, who kind of looks like me. When told he wasn't me, the GM said "Oh" and never came back. The publisher didnt have the grace to at least do that.

    Come on guys..this isn't even a fair contest....The fuckwads at JRC win hands down..the poll should be titled "who is the second worst co. to work for"
    On a happy note the JRC stock is plummeting rapidly as we speak..can't wait to see the webcast of the upcoming Shareholders meeting

    JRC-"no one wants to come-no one wants to stay"

    Celebrateeee, come'on...Bad times ...
