If you really want to join the development organization then your best bet is to be a developer. Not a good place for product managers at all. QE is a great place if your goal is mediocrity and limited career growth. Managers seem to get fired more frequently then ICs.
Choose your VP carefully. Each VP org is vastly different with some much better than others. Try to get to know the organization ahead of time through friends and colleagues. Then hope the horse you're riding on doesn't get sent to the glue factory (your VP doesn't get fired).Cons
No working from home. My manager repeatedly sent out emails to my team to remind us "The ServiceNow development organization doesn't allow for working from home as a common practice. Last minute emergencies exist and will be tolerated." She said if your car is in the shop then rent a car and make sure you're in the office. Picking up relatives or waiting for handyman are not considered legitimate reasons. This may be SOP in San Diego but not in Silicon Valley.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at ServiceNow.Interview Details
I really enjoyed this interview process. It was a bit slow due to some logistics, but otherwise I felt comfortable at all times, and I truly felt like I was also interviewing ServiceNow as a potential employer, not just the other way around.
I found a job posting online and applied. I was contacted almost immediately by the hiring manager with interest. We had a phone interview within a week, a Skype interview a couple weeks later, and then an in-person interview that included giving a product demo to a room of people.
The hiring manager thankfully didn't ask any of those typical interview questions that everyone hates (what's your greatest weakness?) - the interviews all felt more conversational and fluid, like he was getting to know me and I was getting to know the position and company.
The most "challenging" part was, naturally, the product demo, but I was pretty well prepared and felt fairly at ease.Interview Questions

- Absolutely nothing unexpected. The product demo was obviously the most difficult part of the interview process. Answer Question
