Anyone heard of Qualtrics? It's a software company recently purchased by SAP. They are hiring in Seattle and I've been wanting to move to Seattle. Let me know what you guys heard about Qualtrics? Any idea about the salaries there?

    Qualtrics did a contract with my university for like student surveys or something. Think survey monkey, but less sexy. Idk if they do anything else. No idea what they pay.

      They could totally put that on their recruiting site, "like survey monkey but less sexy"

    Qualtrics is the real deal. Pay is great. Tech is amazing. If you get past the interviewing process you will take the job. Reading the other posts on there make me believe these other members did not make it through the interviewing process. Don't get mad if you don't get in as Qualtrics only accepts 2% of all applicants, making sure they bring on the best talent.

      ^this. Whenever I brought up issues like automating things, creating right tools I was told that Q is scrappy. I stopped caring. Management doesn’t realize that having their own DCs is not wise and cheap in the long run. You can automate patching, but it requires discipline on best practices. Not sure why people like JohnT and CraigK don’t prioritize it. A lot of things are just reinventing the wheel with subpar quality.
      The other question to you guys (bruh & user), if you see all these problems and know how to fix, why don’t you step out and offer the fix? Or if you don’t like it, why don’t you leave for other companies?

      Same as you. Tried for a while but have stopped caring and accepted that Q is a sales company and not a tech company. They're always going to favor doing things quick and dirty vs thinking long-term when it comes to engineering. I'm still there cause it pays the bills and the pay post-promotion is nice. But I am looking around and will bail at the first company that matches/beats my salary and will have similar wlb

    Im an l4 and TC is around 190-220k.

    The product sucks. In my job search, I didn't think I cared about the product as long as the software challenges were interesting and pay was good but I was wrong.

    Imagine coming to work and dealing with so much complexity over writing software for a smartfridge or digital photo frame. It eats you up and you question why it's so needlessly complex. Qualtrics does surveys to gather customer feedback. It's not a tech company at heart.

      I agree 100% with BuiltToSex. I’m at Q now. Left for a nice bump, but long term I doubt I’ll stay here. The more SAP starts to interfere, the likely I’ll bolt.

      The product is trash.

      If it’s so easy to build then why is it taking so long to build integrations and release product features?

    Qualtrics needs engineering to integrate with SAP. The company has a great vision but some of the product is messy. The sales messaging is ahead of the product.

      Here to share my experience and knowledge inspired by the support I got from minimsft.
      Do you guys have product management? How are your PMs?

      We do but I haven’t worked with them or been at Qualtrics long enough to comment
