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

Pros

We're medium-sized and growing. There are lots of ways to contribute, and the company is open to all sorts of input and contribution. We want a great culture but aren't sure how to build it- SO much better than arrogant companies that sweep the politics under the rugs. We want great software and are keenly aware that "best practices" of today aren't sufficient to address the real-world challenges in creating software for tomorrow, nor do they mean are already-created software doesn't need improving.

We also have some great company-wide communication, from people at all levels of the organization. Come add your voice, and your camaraderie.

Cons

This is a real company with real challenges. It's not a place where you can simply do what you do well.

Advice to Management

Keep challenging yourselves to communicate more effectively, including creating new ways to listen to people. Often, we do not know you're listening. We don't know what's on your plates or what you're accountable for besides the business goals.

    Pros

    Company culture - put up or shut up. ServiceNow is a transformational technology and the firm does not apologize about wanting drivers - those who are A players move up and fast. If are passionate about your wrok, the team and the product - you wil make make a lot of money and advance in your career. I have had 3 promotions in 2 1/2 years.

    Cons

    Not a place for the meek or those who just want to clock in/clock out. The people who rate company low were passengers and probably were not a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Develop internal talent - hire the best and brightest from top schools. We need to preserve the culture we have built and bringing people with bad habits from outside can slowly break down the fabric that our success has been built upon.

    Pros

    Ability to see your vision become a reality, instead of getting stuck in committee at a bigger company.
    Focus on hard and challenging engineering problems that come with breakneck growth.
    Enough money to afford to make better decisions.

    Cons

    Political, Schizophrenic Execs and Sr. leaders.
    Longer hours
    Focus on lowest common denominator (see other reviews of ex-employees), not the brightest stars.
    Data Domain/EMC good old boys club

    Advice to Management

    Promote, grow and reward from within. There is minimal incentive to perform post-hire. Reward consistent high performers, not people who succeed by cleaning up their own messes.
