    рога и копыта

    What's the closest English match for "рога и копыта" meaning that an entity (such as a business) is unorganized, amateurish, badly managed and prone to failure?

    The only thing that I can think of is "fly by night".

    I don't like to business with "fly by night" company.

    Perhaps someone else will come up with something better.
