    Technical Account Manager

    Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

      Going downhill - non engineers are 2nd class citizens

      Pros

      Colleagues are all amazing, salary and benefits are good in general but benefits are reducing all the time. Technology is world class.

      Cons

      The new CEO has made it clear that ‘support functions’ = anyone not a straight engineer, are not valued in this business. First by awarding non-engineers a lower pay rise (4% compared to 8% for tech staff) and second by announcing 15% staff cuts, but most of them to be in support functions, meaning around 30% cuts in those roles. Morale has plummeted and I struggle to see how it can be restored. The idea is to streamline prior to float, but as the company is already profitable wonder why it has had to be such deep cuts?(Reported in press so not confidential). Values have always been upheld at Arm in the past but they appear to have been cast aside now. I’m disappointed and would no longer recommend Arm as an employer. They had started DEI initiatives, but given many minority staff are in the support functions and will be made redundant, this has turned into a travesty.

      Change is the only constant

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Still has some of the best talent in the industry. But I doubt it would remain so for long.

      Cons

      The company is undergoing such rapid change over the last year or so, that if it wasn't tragic (close to 15% laid-off) it would've been funny. Yes some change is good but not very frequently - it affects the strategy, alignment and eventually the execution.

      The most impactful tech company in the world

      Pros

      Great package. Interesting tech. Plenty of scope for company growth. Career opportunities for engineering folk

      Cons

      Not quite sure what it wants to be when it grows up. Some days it tries to act like a startup - move fast with no structure or processes. Other days it thinks it is a massive corporation with all the BS that goes with that.

      Arm is good

      Pros

      Arm treats its employees better than any employer I have worked for in 30 years in the industry. The reward at the senior end is good. It is flexible in its work policies for those whose performance is good. Arm is highly influential in the ecosystem. Arm on your CV is generally a strong point. Arm gives a month sabbatical for every 4 years of service Senior management regularly make themselves available to explain and be questioned on their actions.

      Cons

      Uncertainty with new CEO and restructuring. Diversity needs improving.
