It’s official: We all think Goldman Sachs is the worst.

At least according to research firm Harris Interactive, which just released the results of its annual poll ranking the corporate reputations of what it says are the country’s 100 most visible companies. Goldman came in dead last, behind even AIG.

Here are the bottom 10:

  • Bank of America
  • Charter Communications
  • Comcast
  • Koch Industries
  • Sears Holdings Corp.
  • Halliburton
  • Monsanto
  • Dish Network
  • AIG
  • Goldman Sachs

What was No. 1? Wegmans, a regional supermarket chain based in Rochester, New York.
