Qualtrics folks,
Are there refreshers at Qualtrics? If yes, how do they work?
Any L5 or L6 sdes willing to help with TC at those levels?
I heard that you guys moved to 3 year vesting.
If you are not comfortable sharing here, please DM or let me know I can DM too.

Currently Tc: 250 @ L6.
Yoe: 8

    Yes there are refreshers. They are awarded annually with the October comp review cycle. It's based on merit + how much unvested equity you have. I don't have L5-6 numbers, and even if I did I'm not sure they would be totally accurate. There has just been 1 refresh cycle and it was a mix of salary + equity refreshes due to moving from an equity heavy to salary heavy TC philosophy (part of the SAP transition)

      So the TC model is similar to Amzn’s, where they take your current equity into account. Did your TC change after acquisition? Lowered or went up?

      That's hard to answer. Most people have some unvested Q RSUs that will last for the next 1-4 years, and if you factor in this pre-acquisition equity, everybody's is likely much higher than before However, once this equity vests, the TC will likely go down a little. Basically the acquisition has put us in a TC bubble.

      In short, pre: low TC but unsellable equity.
      Now: high TC because of vesting equity at a high price
      Future+new hires: higher base salary than before, but less equity

      It went up. Both salary and equity, but equity was particularly small. Definitely smaller than I was expecting. There will be another merit based cycle + promotion cycle in April and we have been told that high performers will get additional increases based on performance. They said they just didn't want to do it all in one cycle.

      If all cash, then it is actually better than rsus. Since it not volatile. You can buy any stock you want. However, the remaining question is how much is TC for L5 and L6. :))

      How are you guys feeling about your future at Q? Are you going to stick around or not?

    Not sure post acquisition but before L6 was in 300s. Same range as Amazon sde3.

      That might be the reason why they cannot attract Sde3s from Amazon.

      Except that everybody is either from Amazon or msft.

      Though it seems TC is comparable to amzn. If Q is giving memoryless refreshers then it would be better than amzn in TC. Btw, DM’ed you.

      They are not willing to give a number. Will update on current. Do you work at Q? Or just chiming in?

      If you mention the TC folks can tell you if Q will match or exceed. You didn't mention your current level.

      They still work independently but yes comp might have changed after the acquisition.
