When using this website, you accept and agree to be bound by these rules. These terms outline the general principles we use to moderate submitted reviews – they cannot account for every hypothetical situation in which a review will be refused publication. Our decision to publish your reviews will always be based on the spirit of these terms.
1. You must only submit a review if;
- You are doing so at your own will, and not at anybody’s instruction to do so.
- You confirm that it is your own true and accurate opinion, and that it is entirely derived from your own personal experience.
2. You must not submit unlawful, objectionable, or personal content. This includes remarks which;
- Personally defame an employee, either by name or job title.
- Make an explicit or implicit threat.
- Contain abuse, insult, racial or sexual harassment.
- Contain personal information about others which allows strangers in public to contact or find them without their permission, ie. home or e-mail address, telephone numbers.
3. These terms seek to prevent harm or disrepute to employees within companies, and to prevent anyone being publicly identified without their permission. They are not here to forbid criticism restricted to internships, as long as the rules above are not broken.
The Intern Insider team moderates and approves all reviews before publication. We will not:
1. Justify our decision to reject a review if it breaches any of the above rules.
2. Edit any content or words in a review before publication so that they satisfy the above terms. When a review breaches these terms, it is simply not published unless its author alters the unsuitable parts of his review.
3. Should we refuse to publish a review, its author will be asked if s/he would like to alter their review.
All reviews on The Intern Insider are the unaltered written submissions of the personal opinions, views, and experiences of named and anonymous contributors. They do not necessarily represent the views of The Intern Insider.
We will not remove critical reviews – unless they break our rules. On the other hand, we want to stress that criticism, with regards to internships, can sometimes be biased and unfair. So we have the following points to make about ‘bad’ reviews:
1. Internships do not necessarily reflect a company’s work culture. They do reflect the merits of an intern’s supervisor and/or how well thought out the internship is.
2. The experience of a particular intern may be confined to a particular department, or to their particular supervisor. It is not necessarily representative of the entire company.
3. Employees cannot be expected to divert plenty of time to be constantly engaged with interns. Reviews must take account of this.
4. Interns often do not have the skills for most tasks. It is thus sensible that they cannot be trusted with ‘important’ work. It should be clear that it is up to the intern to convince employees otherwise. It should be clear that a negative internship experience can owe to a lack of initiative from the intern him/herself.
