What Employees Say
I worked at All Star Directories, Inc. full-time for more than a year
All Star gives you a lot of freedom to be assertive and get what you want out of the position you're in. They do a great job of giving you the tools and training necessary to adapt to the new role... when you arrive, and are invested in their employees. Being a relatively small, employee owned company allows you to voice your opinion and feel as though you have an impact on many of the day to day situations. Flexible work schedule, good compensation and competitive benefits are all good reasons to work here. As long as you get your work done on time and are consistent you won't have any issues. Management does a good job of making sure they're in constant contact with you to manage work load and congratulate you on individual and team wins. Besides the good work environment and free food/coffee/pizza, there are genuinely great people who work at All Star Directories. From day one they do a great job of making you feel comfortable and are down to catch a happy hour or concert. They put an emphasis on hiring people who are going to be good for the culture and I think they did a good job of that while I was there. I had a great time working at ASD and met some people that I'll be in contact with for a long time. Be weary of the negative experiences others had in the past, many of those are written by bitter people who probably wonder why they keep leaving companies with bad experiences (must be bad luck, right). There have been many changes at All Star over the past years and I believe that this company is headed in the right direction and has a very bright future.
Not too many cons if you play your cards right. Depending on what you're looking for I believe you can get what you want out of this company. They're a willing participant in your career development... and allow opportunities for growth.
Advice to Management
Keep listening to employees and make changes where necessary. Keep hiring great people and things will continue to look up for All Star.
I have been working at ServiceNow full-time for less than a year
1) ServiceNow hires great people, they're "adults" (not always the case in Tech) and they genuinely care about each other. 2) Growing like crazy, so much opportunity to learn and advance in every... part of the org 3) There is a pride in our product that is rare (and deserved). 4) We are truly are hungry and humble (one of our values). The entitlement you see at other Tech companies is non-existent, and people are hungry to keep raising the bar and do it QUICK (I left a similar sized tech company with WAY more red tape and bureaucracy, I'm amazed at how fast you can do things here ). 5) Great work/life balance! 6) John Donahoe and the world-class leadership team have transformed this company over the last few years 7) They care about diversity, inclusion and equality. We're still building this capability but the company/leaders truly believe in this and are taking positive steps.
A lot of people who've been here 3-5+ years struggle with the rapid change we're in now. They want to do it "the way it's always been done" and many have never worked for a world-class org and don't... know how to scale. So there's some growing pains between employees who are legacy and newly hired in the last ~2 years. Don't come here if you need a nap pod. Or expect free gelato on every floor. The snack rooms are well stocked with good food, but we do pay for lunch in the tasty and affordable cafe. The benefits are almost as good as industry, 401k is still lower, but everything else pretty much on-par. ServiceNow is also stingier on things like team outing budget and have clamped down on travel some quarters.
Advice to Management
Management is SO accessible, there is so little ego here I've never seen anything like it. I appreciate our leaders and how they talk openly about their failures, wins, and where they're personally... trying to learn and continue to grow. It's rare to see that type of vulnerability among an exec staff. Thank you!
