      What are your reasons for this? Is it just the TC or something else?

      But with my current offer, I'll make more money at Service Now.
      Any idea about work life balance at service now?

  • In most teams, you won’t be doing any real development. They dog food their own platform to develop everything like it’s the only chow in the world. Similar to how Salesforce builds apps on top of Salesforce using that shitty apex language and apis, you’ll be doing the same thing at servicenow and will be highly specialized and won’t get experience in any transferrable skills.

      Can you shed some light on what this platform is like and what its like to work on?

    • They have public online documentation and training videos on YouTube. You can even request your own demo instance to try the platform out. Essentially, the entire platform boils down to a low code crud form builder that’s fairly customizable. It all runs on server side javascript as the scripting engine, using Mozilla Rhino so the javascript version is hella old and they will probably never update Java because they are tied to Rhino. Forget about using any standardized technology at now.

    Intuit. Servicenow has no engineering standards

      Isn't a Senior Software Engineer designation at Intuit low for my YoE?
      Compared to that, I am being offered an appropriate designation at Service Now. Does that shift the equation any bit?

      Eh. I have same and pretty much just took a position at similar title. The way I see it, it’s more head room for promotion

      Senior is the most common level. There are many engineers who have 10 yoe, who are senior. So no it's not low. The levels at Intuit may be different than SN. At Intuit were working to standardize the skills and requirements at each level, but that's a work in progress, so as of right now, leveling is done at the team level.

      I would say there's room for growth but demonstrating that you have staff level skills and getting a promotion would be dependent on where you land in the company.

      In the end, if you feel like the level will sway your decision to take SN over Intuit, tell your HR that you want to be reconsidered and that you have a competing offer. This would be your only time to do that.

      Oh and, don't take the spiel that they will promote you as soon as you get in with hard work. The promotion evaluation is not solely based on the team you work with. Promotions take a lot of time

    serviceNow : Good money, stock is increasing rapidly.
    Intuit is also good
    Intuit is taking a turn towards open source which would be helpful in general whereas in ServiceNow you will be working on their technology ( on ServiceNow platform - everything revolves around platform)

    • They really do dog food their own shit like a dog that was just rescued from an animal shelter. One time someone was working on a spreadsheet in Excel, then the legendary David Goliath Loo passed by and shouted at him for not doing it in the platform.
