Unless the mention on the page is about how terrible the site/company/person in question is, I'd say it has value.

And worse, if you do a good job at entering info here, given Wikipedia's importance, it might actually take a spot above your own company in the search results for the same terms you wanted!
Am I too wrong here? I don't see how adding an entry in Wikipedia can benefit the company as far as SEO goes. (It could still bring traffic I guess but I think that'd be minimal)

My largest site has incoming links from three Wikipedia pages. So far this month, those links gave me 105 direct page views, out of a total of 344 (by "direct", I mean other than from a search engine). So that suggests that the links are definitely worthwhile.
But to keep it in perspective, the same site received over 30,000 page views from search engines in the same period.
Obviously, there's no reason why these particular figures will be relevant for other sites, but I thought it might be interesting to mention them.

Your best bet if your company is in fact noteworthy is to see if you know a Wikipedia editor who can add your company. Barring that, it would be to have someone outside of the company spend a lot of time editing at Wikipedia on pages unrelated to your company and then eventually adding the company page, very carefully following all the guidelines of course.
But don't bother if the company isn't noteworthy to begin with as you'll just be wasting your time.
