GradSiren aims to be the most trusted platform where candidates can search for careers and research prospective companies. Through these principles, we seek to provide a clear-cut, easy-to-navigate system that will create a bridge where both potential employees and employers can connect.
All users are expected to reflect their own identity and only post authentic content accurately. Any suspicious content will be flagged, and users may be prohibited from the site.
All inappropriate, violent, obscene or irrelevant content is forbidden. Any offensive content will be flagged for removal.
Any content that is a violation of intellectual rights is prohibited. All content that is not your own must receive proper attribution to its author.
Photos are the best way of personalizing a company, allowing the candidate to have an inside look at your premises. We encourage photos of office exteriors, interiors, events, and other items that help jobseekers understand the company's culture better.
Please do not post
Awards are a great way to showcase your company's success. We recommend you post awards that your company or division has received from upper management. We also welcome specific product awards as they reveal core information about a company. Note, we do not actively moderate awards, and if you find any that do not fit guidelines, please submit to us for further review.
Be Honest: Keep your review truthful. Do not stretch details to try to fit your point and do not exaggerate. If you cannot support your claim with evidence, then leave it out.
Refer to Your Exact Experience: Don't be general. Talk specifically about communication, interactions and so on. This personal information helps people get a better understanding of company culture.
Write in complete sentences: Your review will be more effective if you utilize full sentences rather than fragments. Be specific and express complete ideas.
Be Clear and Concise: Stick to the point. You don't need to go overboard with detail, just write enough so that the reader will be informed.
Be Interesting: You don't have to be better than television, but write in such a way that the reader is engaged and wants to learn more. We do not require a specific format, just express yourself in a way that will keep that reader attentive until the end.
Proofread: You likely spent a good amount of time thinking about this review and drafting it. So take the time to double check it. Spelling and grammar mistakes will make the reader less inclined to trust your opinion.
Comments with certain profanity will be automatically removed. Those with other curse words will be reviewed. Overall, profanity does not help your review so only use it if necessary.
Employers should respond in ways outlined in the guidelines for reviews, with the exception that employers are permitted to add their contact info and pertinent URLs. (This would include any company policies, hotlines to report any ethics and compliance issues.)
Specifically, we ask employers:
Please note that GradSiren does moderate employer responses. Therefore, if the response does not meet the guidelines, it will be removed, and you will receive notification.
Honest reviews are the foundation of GradSiren, and we encourage everyone to submit relevant and appropriate reviews. We will remove positive reviews anytime we believe we have proof that a person was compensated or coerced into leaving a review. A proponent of anonymity, GradSiren doesn't allow any employer to ask anyone to prove about their postings on GradSiren.
If you see something on GradSiren which you think is in violation, you should flag it for our review. We will address it and make a decision; we do not accept or return phone calls. Remember that simply flagging something doesn't mean it will be removed. We have a diverse community; what offends one person may not offend others.
All users should understand we maintain these same policies of review for all content regardless of whether or not this concerns employers or job seekers. Ultimately, all decisions relating to content is at our discretion and are non-negotiable.
