Will it be a pleasurable interaction in the purchasing phase, will the product be good, will customer service be good? If I have any problems, how well will they be taken care of? Can I get information on the products?
Beyond that, unless there are truly unsavory practices going on (eg. a company treats its employees horribly, is environmentally irresponsible, etc) it's simply not relevant.
Or more precisely: not relevant to you. For me it's not a political or quality control issue. It's a matter of feeling a sense of decency by not rewarding people who demonstrate objectionable behavior. Many people will typically turn a blind eye if it means saving a buck - apparently you fall in that category. More power to you because I can't do it. I have turned down many big jobs because I simply did not like people I dealt with at our initial meeting. Perhaps as you get older, you'll come around to the idea that life is short.
