      I can’t tell if you’re insecure because you’re at Uber or what.

      This Medallia dude sounds like the internet version of a chihuahua. So jumpy and defensive... almost like he/she is compensating for something...

    Why is everybody filing for IPO this year? Is a recession approaching?

      It is coming even if it wasn't. Some say it is a self-fulfilling prophecy, but lets hang on and see when and how it is going to happen in the next 12 months.

      A recession has been predicted for a year or two from now, since—hmm—2012?

      We were still recovering in 2012 there was no recession speculation then .

      That a recession and stock market correction are due, if not overdue, is hardly a surprise, nor does it require any specialized knowledge or skill other than common sense.

      That nobody knows precisely when it will occur also isn't a surprise, as such events are as much based on psychology as they are on finance and economics.

      I heard Qualtrics employees received a shit load of cash after SAP buyout.

    • Medallia / Other Fake 🍔
      Yeah most people at qualtrics got screwed unless they joined in the last 1-2 years before the acquisition and were located outside Utah. But then again, they made big contributions and very quickly replicated most of Medallia’s product and messaging to a T.

    Hard to excited about an IPO when they are doing it because they are running out of cash and are not even the market leader.

      And the one large bank that Qualtrics mentioned in their S1 filing.....guess who they went to after they fired Qualtrics.
      Jun 25
  • Qualtrics jducneb
    Pretty sad numbers from the “industry” leader. Wow 300 customers - Qualtrics has 9000! Pretty sure just new revenue for CX line for Qualtrics this year is going to surpass Medallia’s total annual revenue.

    If I read the numbers right, looks like $130M of cash in the bank and $80M of losses per year - Medallia had to IPO as they only have 18 months of runway left and couldn’t get other funding

      I'm amazed people who didn't get shit from equity (or bread crumbs) and are now working for SAP, one of the least inspiring tech company out there, are being that vehement on this thread. Chill guys, if you're frustrated with life raging on blind is not going to make it any better

    Pros: This co is everywhere if you take a look at emails. It’s impressive.

    Cons: Qualtrics is also everywhere . Email search yielded about the same.

    Also con for Medallia. If the company is winning, why did SAP buy Qualtrics for 30x when Leslie Stretch was a known SAP exec.
    Sorry fellas. Doesn’t add up. Sequoia is sticking a fork in this one. I do wish the employees well with their options. Hopefully Sequoia doesn’t own too much of a Medallia before IPO. Dilution is a total b****.

    • Medallia osbdid
      Honestly think the space is large enough for both companies to be everywhere and do well. If anything SAP's 21x buyout is only signaling to the rest of the market how much CEM is worth for exec teams.
      Some random dudes from Uber on this thread might not know any other brands than Taco Bell but the reality is the space is piping hot and only getting hotter.
      Not everything has to be a zero sum game.
      Jun 25
    • Amazon rvdtsuked
      Ok but this space is a zero sum game, they are not super differentiated. Having said that, as far as I can tell both are pretty pervasive and have enough share of market to do well.

      its typical to have two leaders in a space with hatred and love to each other.

      i don’t disagree about competitors - but that’s not what I see as issue for medallia going forward. I’ve been in sales for my entire career including leadership. I can tell you that nothing is as exciting as calling on an existing customer to upsell/cross sell. Every Medallia + SAP account will be a target by Qualtrics sales. And, they will make it a no-brainer to switch. Not everyone has SAP, but those that do are likely a big percentage of medallia accounts. Not a hater. It’s just how business works.

      Just for context, Qualtrics is Medallia's major competitor and each time there's a public thread about Medallia, hoards of them descend upon it talking shit. Most of us don't care, but I think some are taking the bait.
