Qualtrics levels and compensation?

Sep 18, 2019 11 Comments

Hi, I received a senior offer a few years ago but I declined it at the time. Now they are recruiting me for staff level. I am wondering if this is equivalent to the previous staff level.

The reason I ask is because some companies change the titles after acquisition. For example, there could be an automatic title change to higher title to match the company that acquired it. Is staff level still the same staff level as before?

Also, how is the compensation? My senior offer was much lower at the time compared to other offer. But I feel like the compensation went up. I am not sure if this is because of acquisition which boosted the worth of stock price. Is stock liquid after acquisition?

TC: 280k

    It would be helpful if you shared the level that you were offered.

    We technically have sap levels but they don’t mean anything and half the employees likely aren’t aware

      Thanks! Very informative. I am not sure if I am qualified for staff then. L6 sounds more like the level eventually

      From MS perspective, depending on your career loosely L63-65 could be an L6. A lot is interview dependent, trajectory in career etc

    Comp went down after acquisition, but it's decent. Staff is signify higher than senior. Titles are still the same.

      I feel like pre-aquisition we down leveled everyone and got people to sign based on IPO hype. Post-aquisition we hire people in at much higher levels which seems to be the case here too. Same person suddenly being looked at for a much more senior level. Great if you're on the outside, sucks internally.

      They're all L10s. Levels would mean nothing anyways, as their comp is nearly entirely discretionary equity and bonuses.
