I worked at ServiceNow full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Opportunities to travel and get Hilton HHonors reward points

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 Management

Get your house in order. The hard part lies ahead and you're resting on your laurels.

    Pros

    Salary and RSUs
    Nice Macbook
    Very easy interview process

    Cons

    This place has some serious issues with the way they treat their software developers. The middle managers here are bipolar slave drivers. They smile and suck up like minions to the executives, but are nasty and insulting to their directs. The developers are scared, stressed out and unhappy. There are many good job opportunities for good software developers elsewhere. Please pay heed to this warning, avoid this psycho slave camp.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring minions as middle managers and try to hire some great leaders. Send the current ones for therapy sessions.
