Please evaluate offer from Qualtrics

Mar 24, 2019 66 Comments

Hi,
Got offer as L5 (senior sde, maps somewhere between amzn L5 and L6) from Qualtrics. Would like to understand if it is good/bad. And what happens once initial grants are gone. Recruiters didn’t shed any light on that.

Qualtrics folks please let me know if it is worth joining. How are benefits like health insurance, etc.

Base: 185
Equity: $300k/ 3 years = $100k / year
Bonuses: 10% of base
Yoe: 8

Thanks!

Location: Seattle

    I just received a similar offer last month. My base was 190K and a 30K sign on bonus. I didn't negotiate with them so I'm sure it could be higher had I negotiated.

      Qualtrics was easier. Coding was quite easy but design rounds were good. I liked the interviewers and had a good discussion. After the interview I did like the place overall.

      Agreed but if the refreshers are worth 10k then what?

      Haven’t thought that far. Hopefully Q is interested more in retaining the talent.

    I wouldn’t join if you have anything comparable elsewhere, SAP acquisition cannot be good for eng culture in the long run

    That equity is for SAP stock. Bonus for on target is 10%. Benefits have always been eh but improving - they are all up in the air w the SAP acquisition though. Pre-acquisition they only gave out additional equity w a promotion. Post-acquisition we have refreshers available twice a year but it hasn’t been long enough for any of us to know how those will really work.

      Thank you, for reminding that. :) Where did I say that I don’t care about refreshers. I care about them, but not in a sense of freaking out and dropping the offer. TC is still more than what I will do at amzn for the next 3-4 years. Nobody knows what will happen in 3-4 years.

    Op.. you got SAP stock as RSU?

      You get cash that’s tied to SAP stock value. So basically SAP stock but they give you cash when it vests rather than stock.

      OP
      What if SAP stock goes down or up?Does the cash value goes down/up too?
