Our Commitment


At Blacklist, our mission is to create a reliable space for candidates to explore job opportunities, delve into company insights, and interact with our robust professional community. Our guidelines and moderation processes are meticulously tailored to fit the varied legal landscapes of the global markets where Blacklist operates.


Freedom of Anonymity & Expression: We champion the values of anonymity and free expression. Every voice has the right to be heard without fear of retaliation or unwarranted scrutiny.


Integrity in Content: Blacklist never modifies or tampers with user-contributed content.


Open to All Opinions: We do not prioritize or dismiss content based on its positive or negative sentiment.


Highlighting Top Leadership: Content that mentions titles of high-ranking individuals whose roles broadly shape the workplace culture is permitted, given that it pertains to their professional behavior or actions. Such roles may comprise the C-suite, Owners, Founders, etc. Negative remarks about individuals by name (as opposed to title only) are discouraged.


Vigilant Moderation: With our community's assistance, we actively oversee content and restrict users who deviate from our guidelines or breach the professionalism expected on Blacklist.


Unbiased Stance: Blacklist serves as an impartial platform. We refrain from judgments in disputes between our users and their employers, past or present. We solely focus on ensuring content aligns with our guidelines.


Uniform Review Standards: We uphold consistent review criteria across all content, irrespective of any affiliations with Blacklist.


User Verification: A permanent email or valid social network account is mandatory for content contribution. In certain scenarios, further verification may be sought.


Content Oversight: Our moderation encompasses an initial tech-based review followed by human moderation if needed. User-flagged content also undergoes human scrutiny.


Guarding Against Misuse: Sophisticated algorithms and filters are deployed to thwart content manipulation attempts.
