In a word--ENRON!
But to expand the def some, I'd add:
-business practices that defraud the customer, misrepresent the nature of services/products, or violate federal, state, or local laws;
-advertising, marketing, or promotion campaigns that violate the law, or lie;
-internal policies that unfairly discriminate, violate employees reasonable expectations of privacy, safe workspaces, etc., or deliberately target high-cost employees for demotions/layoffs;
-executive "leadership" that tolerates management behavior that violates the law, is abusive, or breeds deceit in any fashion;
-personnel and staffing policies that defraud employees, pay them unjust or unfair wages, and maintain two or more unequal sets of benefit packages, depending on the management level, gender, age, family status, or race of the employee.
(Just to name the biggies...)

What I'd like to know is what are the definitions of "unethical" companies?
And lets keep it polite :-)
