Dark matter searches at the LHC provide an intriguing way to probe dark matter interactions with the Standard Model.  In order to allow for a flexible and reliable interpretation of LHC data and to facilitate comparison with other observables the "simplified model" framework, which is widely used by the experimental collaborations, has been developed. However, the simplified models used to describe the
interactions of dark matter with Standard Model particles suffers from a number of shortcomings which limits their reliability. I'll discuss ways to address these issues and comment on the consequence for dark matter phenomenology.
