Mission: Everything as a Service.

ServiceNow – Why Work For Us?

 Your enterprise needs to move faster, but lack of process and legacy tools hold you back. Every day, thousands of customer requests, IT incidents, and HR cases follow their own paths—moving back and forth between people, machines, and departments. 

With the ServiceNow System of Action you can replace these unstructured work patterns of the past with intelligent workflows of the future. Now every employee, customer, and machine can make requests on a single cloud platform. Every department working on these requests can assign and prioritize, collaborate, get down to root cause issues, gain real-time insights, and drive to action. 

Your employees are energized, your service levels improve, and you realize game-changing economics. Work at Lightspeed.

    I have been working at ServiceNow full-time (More than a year)


    ServiceNow is a company that operates in a lean fashion. Every individual has the opportunity to take part in critical and meaningful work that impacts the company. There are ample opportunities for advancement, as they really do promote from within. Reading other reviews I would agree that ServiceNow has a performance driven culture. I have been here for 1.5 years and our stock has risen by $25. If you want to work for a company in which you can scrap by and earn a paycheck find somewhere else to work. Bonuses/stock are paid out quarterly and yes your performance is reviewed in such terms as well. Some people who worked at bigger companies can't adjust to the fast release cycles or the fact that their work has high visibility. Management expects us to work hard, but they honor our DTO policy. One of the few places where you work hard, but they respect your work life balance. Their is awesome management who actually cares about your personal growth as an employee, gives you the support, and tools that you need to perform your job well. We are the best kept secret in the valley, if you don't believe it go do some research.


    None that i can think of.

    Advice to Management

    As the company begins to scale and stocks price increases, it would be nice to increase our fringe benefits to match those of our competitors.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at ServiceNow.


    Invited for one hour onsite interview. Had a neutral experience with manager but a very bad experience with one of the team members. No communication, no talking, no explanation. All the interview was doing is to repeat the really vague question, which honestly I think he/she does not understand either. I was trying to get clarifications and define initial parameters but all I got is the repeating question. I have to assume the inputs and confirm with interviewer before writing. After I finished, the interviewer propose a totally different inputs that could be provided at the beginning during our discussion, and I was blamed for not asking questions to get the correct input.

    What a hilarious interview. Totally waste of my time. I've interviewed with over 20+ leading tech companies and only Walmart lab can beat it in terms of how bad it is. And just give you a tip, they definitely like you if you are from a particular country.
