Guess Which Colorado Company's Among Ten Least Respected U.S. Businesses

The folks at FindTheBest.com have pulled together lists of the most and least respected companies in America.

And unfortunately, a Colorado firm is on the latter roster.

The data is culled from two rounds of Harris Poll surveys. The first asked 4,000 respondents to list America's most visible companies, while the second requested that 27,000 others rate two businesses that made the cut by the following standards:

• Vision and Leadership
• Social Responsibility
• Emotional Appeal
• Products and Services
• Workplace Environment
• Financial Performance

The results were then converted into a single reputation score that corresponds to these grades:

• 80 & Above: Excellent
• 75-79: Very Good
• 70-74: Good
• 65-69: Fair
• 55-64: Poor
• 50-54: Very Poor
• Below 50: Critical

The ten least respected companies, including the one from Colorado, scored in the "poor" or "very poor" categories.

Look below to count down the "least-respected" top ten, followed by clickable heat graphs showing that data and the info at the opposite end of the scale: the ten most respected companies.
