Negotiating Qualtrics TC in Seattle

Capital One pdash
Mar 30 16 Comments

Have a msft 160k/yr TC (120 base, 40 stock, 25 signing) verbal offer, L60. However I really enjoyed my time interviewing at Qualtrics but Glassdoor seems to indicate qualtrics generally pays a lot less. Anyone have experience negotiating qualtrics (Seattle)? 2 YOE

    Came from non tech to tech.
    The base was fairly inflexible, but the stock was very flexible. That said, that was pre-sap

    MSFT lowballs often. Go with Qualtrics and they will give higher offer.

      For my level? I have 2 YOE and I negotiated my TC up from 116/year to 160/year with no competing offer

      Your offer is similar to a MSFT fresh grad offer from 6 years ago. It's good it's not great. Stock rewards are pretty low once you join, so you won't increase your TC much while you grow.

    You could beat that at Qualtrics.

    I'd guess qualtrics will totally beat this offer. Don't disclose the MSFT numbers. Just negotiate the initial offer a bit more, you'll be a lot more than MSFT.

    But MSFT has excellent benefits and being a bigger company, you have a lot of different teams to do internal transfer.

    Qualtrics' Work life balance is worse than Microsoft and better than Amazon.

    They can keep up at the higher levels from what I hear/see.
