Most admired and most crooked? Fortunes #4!
I love Pfizer. Ok, they did get tagged with the largest fine for committing fraud ever in the US. Sorry...you probably thought that was a joke. I mean there are a lot of companies doing "funny" stuff, but to pay out the largest fine in the history of the US. Wow that's awesome!
Actually it was only a small fine of $2.3 million, oops I meant billion (Justice Dept lawsuit). Company fines now total over $5.6 billion. BTW apparently Pfizer's largest investors incidentally own large shares of Reuters News. You know the guys who've been actively supporting Pfizer & other's vaccines & attacking their detractors. I salute you guys. Honestly, I'm a little jealous. https://violationtracker.goodjobsfirst.org/parent/pfizer
World’s Most Admired Companies
Just as it dominates our economy, Big Tech now dominates Fortune’s annual ranking of corporate reputation. For the third year in a row, Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft rank first, second, and third, respectively, based on our poll of some 3,700 corporate executives, directors, and analysts. It’s Apple’s 15th straight year in the No. 1 spot, a fitting coronation for the world’s most valuable company. As a global pandemic limped into its third year, meanwhile, companies on the front lines of the medical battle gained new respect. Pfizer, codeveloper of one of the most effective COVID-19 vaccines, vaulted all the way to No. 4, appearing on our All-Stars list for the first time in 16 years. And Danaher (No. 37), whose COVID tests and drug-development equipment are pivotal tools in the fight against the novel coronavirus, made its top 50 debut.
