  • BlackBerry Ranked As One Of The Top Ten Hated Companies In The US

    BlackBerry is ranked as the ninth hated company in the USA according to 24/7 Wall Why, you may ask? Well, according to the criteria of 24/7 Wall St., it comes down to customer and employee satisfaction, stock performance and management decisions.

    Now we all know that BlackBerry has had it's recent downfall but honestly, does this generate a loathing on a level to rank BlackBerry in this top 10? Unfortunately, the article doesn't break down how the companies were rated in those criteria.

    24/7 Wall writes:

    BlackBerry shares dropped by nearly 30% over the past year, while the S&P 500 gained more than 25%. Revenue in the third quarter was approximately $1.2 billion, down 56% from the year before. The company recorded revenue from 1.9 million smartphones in the period, compared to 6.9 million in the same quarter of the previous year, and the company lost $4.4 billion in the quarter. In contrast, Apple sold 33.8 million iPhones in its last reported quarter.
    24/7 Wall also points out that the New Z10 and Q10 phones were ignored which caused the cuts to their work force and the financial write offs. BlackBerry shot itself in the foot when they failed to market their new phones which mostly caused the customer apathy.

    Does all that garner hatred though? I'm curious to know if any current BlackBerry users were sampled? Or were they former users? The same with employees. Were current stock holders surveyed? Inquiring minds want to know.

    What do you think? Is BlackBerry a company to be hated enough to be ranked in the top 10?? Is it to be taken with a grain of salt? Let us know what you think about BlackBerry's ranking in the comments below.
