      Pros

      Great company culture, good working environment. Huge new well-equipped office in Cambridge. Moving to hybrid working after COVID. Contributing to leading edge technology, working with brilliant colleagues.

      Cons

      Some uncertainty currently around the Nvidia acquisition. Hopefully will be resolved by the middle of 2022.

      A brilliant experience thus far

      Pros

      The work has been truly engaging, and I find myself learning new concepts and techniques each and every day. Remote working has actually been tackled really well by the company, and I feel very well connected and included in the community of employees. It's always easy to see where exactly I fit into the big picture.

      Cons

      Sometimes the work can feel overwhelming, but this would be expected at first anyways. I can't say much else against working here as I've really enjoyed it overall.

      A decent stepping stone

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Everyone is polite and respectful. - Work can be interesting. - No micromangement.

      Cons

      - Low base salary. The full compensation package itself is far from 'competitive'. - The CEO pretends that working fully remotely is 'tiring' and generally a bad thing. This means that the new 'hybrid workplace' is quite restrictive and requires you to be present at the contractual office location. - What you learn at Arm may be useful only for your career at Arm. - Slashes to compensation package with nothing concrete for the future. - Lots of colleagues leaving during the past 7 months and the company is currently in a hiring freeze.

      Lots of career progression but management constantly changing direction due to ownership confusion

      Jul 8, 2021 - Senior Engineer in Manchester, England, England

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great salary - Great benefits - Great team management (SMMU) - Lots of progression available to work your way high up the ladder all the way to Distinguished Engineer and then Fellow afterwards! - Good worklife balance - I am constantly encouraged to only work my contracted hours and reminded that when I don't it is unhealthy by the team management.

      Cons

      Upper management are constantly changing direction as to what they want to do with the company and have poor vision. The Softbank acquisition resulted in "too much" hiring and resultantly even graduates getting fired, this is unacceptable as a graduate should never be hired if they're not of quality to do the work.

      Pros

      - Excellent pay and benefits - Friendly and intelligent colleagues - Impactful problems to work on

      Cons

      - Some management layes seem somewhat redundent - Organisational structure can be complex to navigate - A lot of legacy tech means you will have to learn the ARM way of doing things rather than always being able to reach for the most modern tooling
