    I have been working at Arm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on cutting edge technologies, excellent work environment and a culture that encourages innovation and creativity, great benefits and work life balance, highly capable and motivated work force led well by the top level management. Company ethos is one of a responsible and caring industry leader rather than a company that is only interested in profits and abuse of it's market share.

    Cons

    Slow to adapt to change, rapid growth in the last 2 years has been difficult but ARM is slowly but surely changing for the good. There are some redundancies in engineering development and design centres can sometimes compete with each other instead of collaborating with each other as parts of the same company

    Advice to Management

    Recent reorg is a step in the right direction, Encourage more shared development amongst various engineering groups

    I have been working at Arm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Great opportunities for learning from top industry talent 2. Company values are thought out and tried to stay on focus and relevant 3. Passionate environment nurturing creativity and proactively pushing for innovation 4. Most people are easily approachable and happy to be consulted

    Cons

    1. Lots of restructuring recent years for better or worse 2. Some office politics taking place but in most cases it's unavoidable for a company with that size unfortunatly

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the engineers and try to get the real feedback and don't be scared to proactively seek also the behind the back, coffee talks, insight too. Try to stay unbiased, not to punish proactive criticism even if it's delivered with a tinge of emotion and anger. Maintain or create a positive proactive environment even in the worst project crunching critical times to ensure team unity and happiness leading to higher productivity too hopefully.

    I have been working at Arm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    + Friendly and fun working environment + Freedom of implementing one's own ideas + Great experience for Graduates + Good work-life balance

    Cons

    - Work sometimes being too laid-back

    Advice to Management

    With Arm expanding at ever increasing pace, it is very important to keep the people engaged with Arm for longer terms. Due to recent political movements, the salaries have become less than the competitive standards of industry. The company should address this at some point.

    I worked at Arm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good culture, people, and career growth opportunities, on the technical side there is a lot to learn and the work environment enables a good pace to do so. Work normally presents a challenge which is good so you never feel bored. Compensation seems fair, having sabbatical and good amount of holidays.

    Cons

    Sometimes the small company mindset remains on simple things like conferences across multiple sites, also the IT it's quite terrible for computing resources and management, the company seems more interested in not investing even though in their plans they need to grow in head count (now been part of SoftBank), which I find contradictory. Project planning seems like a mess to disorganised sometimes, they need to enforce standardisation

    Advice to Management

    Invest on IT for Engineering computing resources, and do not lose the "what" and thos who have made you a great company so far.

    Pros

    The community is great.

There are literally no realistic limitations for your growth as a proffesional as long as you're eager to do so.

    Cons

    Sometimes around deadlines it could get a little bit too stessful

    Advice to Management

    Stay open for quality feedback and keep up improving continuously

    Pros

    Management are very open with employees about direction for the company, threats and opportunties ARM is taking great strides to move from a small company to a large company but is maintaining well the things that made it great Salary/package has improved significantly over the last 12 month Bonus structure has changed to enable employees to share even more in the success of the company

    Cons

    Can't think of any right now. I've worked at a number of other electronics companies and this is the best one yet

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep focused on sustainable growth of the company and maintain the healthy balance between long and short term
