    Had a friend quit. She was told she should have kids and stay in the kitchen. Small sample size and she was in the Utah office. Crazy mormans.

      That sounds straight out of 4chan... Doesn't seem to be representative of the company.

      @eeXB43 Yeah, you worked at Qualtrics *in Seattle*. Provo, Utah is filled with Mormons and Mormons are preeeeetttty damn sexist.

      In Seattle? Sure, BS. But considering the location, I buy it.

      As someone who lives in Utah and knows a ton of people at that company, I'm going to call BS on that. It's a pretty progressive company.

    The company has made a major shift in the last 5 years. A lot of the stories mentioned here about Provo were probably true, but culturally has changed into a major globally run organization.

    There a major efforts that have been underway for the last 18 months to improve hiring and retention for women and other underrepresented groups as well.

    More than 50% of senior hires in 2019 are women. The only two promotions in one of our most senior bands this past go around we’re women. The executive who oversees all of Qualtrics for SAP is Jen Morgan who is pretty kick ass if you read up on here.

    Being based in Seattle I’ll tell you it’s a great place to be regardless of gender identification, sexual identity, race, religion, etc. can’t speak directly for Provo, but I know it’s changed significantly in the last few years now that we don’t primarily hire out of BYU anymore.

    I’d advice you to ask your recruiter about the Women’s leadership development group and ask to speak with someone involved to tell you more about their efforts

    I’ve been to both offices quite a bit. For Utah, it’s fantastic. Still I don’t recommend the Utah office. Seattle office is great though, and has a pretty different culture from the Provo office.

    It’s definitely an international company now though and that reflects to some degree on the culture in all offices. Feel free to PM if you have more questions.

    Also Qualtrics does take diversity seriously and is actively working to add more women in leadership roles.

      There is definitely a reflection of local culture in the office, like any company.

      That said, 75% of hires come from out of state, so it's pretty diverse.

    Also during your interview I would ask any manager or leader to talk about a recent time they had to address an issue or racial and gender bias. What happened to the person who raised the issue, and looking back was there a better way you could have addressed it.

    If they can’t bring a specific example they are bullshitting you or just completely oblivious.

    If they bring up their policies and procedures but don’t bring up a specific example then they are just lip service.

  • This is purely anecdotal and probably does not represent the overall company, but I have heard that most of these Utah companies have a Mormon undertone. A good friend worked for another SLC company and said that if you aren’t apart of that “in crowd”, good luck.

      I worked there at Seattle. It is a good company, good people. The compensation was a bit lower but heard recently they have increased.
