The company you keep.

I was dismayed to read the list of companies you deemed worthy of inclusion in your "best" column ["Welcoming Workplaces," October 11]. While some companies have been traditionally supportive of the community, others are out only to make a profit at everyone's expense. Is that really what we want to include as a "good" company? Your criteria seemed to be a rather narrow list of what's good for us. GlaxoSmithKline has been in the news repeatedly in the past few years for an ever-growing number of scandals, including hiding trials of Paxil, testing drugs on babies, and illegally overpricing AIDS medications in Africa. Social responsibility needs to be included in your criteria before giving props to a company.
