I have an offer for qualtrics in Seattle. It is for L5 and I wanted to see if I was getting the short end of the stick here.

Base pay: 175k
Cash sign on: 30k
Signing stock: 180k over 3 years

Currently a PM at Microsoft with 6 yoe. Current TC is 175k.

Would like your advice on whether this is a standard offer from qualtrics, and if I should realistically consider taking it. Thank you.

      More than SDE2 TC at most companies, honestly laughable that L5 offer is 250k

      He is not SDE, seems good for PM.

      Not sure, I think it's probably closer to Amazon L5

      L5 is senior here. People who are already L5/L62 at Amazon/Microsoft come in as L5

      L63-64 starts to also matter the years of experience for what you get offered. If you’re young and got that Qualtrics doesn’t really care and just looks at your years. If you’re a bit older but still good trajectory they’ll make you L6 (business side)

    Agree, all of our new offers have been awful without RSUs propping them up.

      What should an L5 offer be

      Around 300 TC

    For nearly the same tc as Microsoft at the start, I’d say it’s not worth it for the money. We get smaller raises smaller bonus.

    If you want something that’s not about the money this could be good for you though

    It's a big TC increase. Do you think you will get promoted at msft anytime soon to close the TC gap?

    If the gap is <30k, I'd stay with msft. Q doesn't have any interesting projects. Most of the project planning is handled directly by engineers because we are a smaller company.
