Making Friends for Life: Stephanie, Sales Development Representative
I've always been driven by opportunities that will allow me to grow and progress. I remember when I first spoke to someone at Qualtrics regarding a potential role for me, one of the first things they laid out for me was my career path and since starting with Qualtrics my career progression has been a topic of conversation every month which isn't something I've experienced in previous roles at other companies.
What attracted you to Qualtrics in the first place?
First, it was the product: I had used Qualtrics briefly during my Masters in Management & Marketing but I didn't have a full understanding back then in terms of its capabilities. It was when a manager reached out to me on LinkedIn about a potential role when I really researched Qualtrics and I was fascinated by the product. I learned then that it was more than just a survey platform and it was a product that I wanted to learn more about and sell!
Secondly, it was the people. I had such a good interview experience with the interviewers on two different onsite occasions. Each person that interviewed me was so friendly and welcoming I knew straight away I'd be able to fit in.
What has surprised you most about working at Qualtrics?
What has surprised me most about working at Qualtrics is the people. From the minute I stepped in the door for my first interview to this day, everyone has been so friendly and welcoming. Sometimes when a company has 200+ employees it can be difficult to get to know people but here, everyone is very open to getting to know one another even if you are on different teams or floors. I have, for sure, made some friends for life from Qualtrics.
What's a favorite moment/memory of your time at Qualtrics so far?
I think I have too many favourite moments even though I've only been with Qualtrics for over a year now. While Qualtrics offers great roles and opportunities, the company also provides a great social aspect. On the top floor of the office we have a room called "The Field" that has incredibly comfortable couches, pool table, table tennis, PlayStation and last, but not least a bar - yes an actual bar where you can pull your own pint! It's here where I've been able to switch off from work and create memories with friends over a few drinks or a competitive game of table tennis.
What 3 words would you use to describe Qualtrics to someone?
Fast-paced, challenging, fun.
