    There are a lot of lies here. First, we don't sell to 3rd parties. Second, we have sick day, even a full 2 week free holiday around Christmas time. Third, we are much more than a survey company. Fourth, if you have to, you can work from home (ex: doctor visit, etc..).

      Any sick day is coming from you vacation days so it doesn’t count. Isn’t that correct?

      ^ Correct. However, they do have the Christmas week off. Also, if you have a good understanding with your manager and if you manage your work expectations correctly, you can take more time off

    Do not expect any help without helping others with offer details.

      I’m not asking about comp, but about the company. It doesn’t matter if they offered me 500k or 1MM

    Annadotal: known three people there all GTFO, horrible attrition and at one point were highly encouraging employees to "recruit" friends.

      This is for level 6 or 7 in Qualtrics? Also sorry I am confused if you took the offer or not? This says yes, you said no on the refreshers thread.

    Stay away. They find something to discriminate you. They revoked my job offer because they realized that I do not have a BS Degree in Computer Science. Wtf?..

      Wow, that happened after they hired you or while doing the background check?

      Before the background check.

    Friend works there. Growing company based out of Utah. Mormon culture, moreso there. Seattle just moved to new offices. Check about the WFH policy, as I've been told they don't allow it which is a big deal.

      Thanks, is your friend happy? For how long he has been working there? Yeah, they don’t have WFH but it doesn’t really matter to me

      Best decision that I ever made. Solid company, with much upside.

      It is not a mormon culture. We have been in new office for at least a year

    Qualtrics is a f***d up company. Its based off UT and they are a survey company. So, what ever tech you do... its not going to take you anywhere in your career. Also one BAD THING I heard is after they collect survey info, they sell it to third parties

    Search Blind. There were quite a lot of posts about Qualtrics. I got an offer as well and did not join them as I had a much better offer from other company. Without competing offer, their offer might be quite low (eg same as Microsoft but with worse benefit). I think they only have two weeks of vacation. Sick days might not exist. Benefits and stock in general were very disappointing despite it is not a public company.

      Did some search but couldn’t find much. Thanks for sharing your experience. I have competing offers and they improved their offer a few times already. They have a cap in salary around 200k so it’s a big gamble around rsu and potential IPO. I don’t like their three years policy also. Benefits are lower than any other company out there.

      What’s their 3 year policy if you don’t mind sharing?

      You have three years to vest your RSUs once you leave the company (in the case that the company wasn’t sold or isn’t public). Lyft let’s you hold the rsus for over 7 years

      They revoked their job offer to someone I know for her not having a 4 year college degree. Ridiculous. She cleared the interview and got the offer. Can you believe that?

    Make sure you read both the employment offer and employee agreement in ensuring you understand what they are truly offering you and the conditions. Many people complain of bait and switch..... the allure is the IPO.... if you believe that is the ticket to a successful career.

      Could you explain further on this? Do you think that the IPO is the only positive offering they have?

    For people criticizing, they just got sold for 8 billion $. At least the owners made their money , not sure about the employees

    OP, how many RSUs did the 600k paper money translate to?
