      Reward packages needs updating

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You get to work with many of clever people. A sensible ongoing approach to come back to the office during the pandemic.

      Cons

      Benefits being reduced, and progression now very slow for current employees, so it is not the most compelling payment package in the market. Lots of good people leaving, as it is very hard to get your voice heard in terms of salary increases - very sad.

      Could be a great place to work if people listen to feedback

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of perks with bonus, good incentives such as flex pot (£4K on personal wellbeing and development) however this is no longer offered at Arm.

      Cons

      Unless you’re in with the senior managers you have zero chance of being noticed and rewarded for the work you do. Lots of politics with middle managers who have poor productivity seeming to get promoted or moved around rather than addressing the problems head on. Lots of chaos and confusion over who is doing what. It’s a shame as it wasn’t always like this.

      Very good company to work with

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I, in theory, should go to my Cambridge office at least twice per week, but I'm effectively working from home full time from London. Very not stressful jobs

      Cons

      If your team is located, for instance, in London, they won't allow you, for instance, to work from France for that team

      90% politics, 10% engineering

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Advanced Arm technology and engineering methodologies you can learn from. You have a salary. Base salary is very low. Although Arm advertises additional benefits to golden the pill, these are not guaranteed. For example, the flexpot was a significant pay cut.

      Cons

      Too much politics. Employees with good connections higher up take leading roles independent of their technical capacity. They make your life hard with their attitude. Tasks are usually cog-ish. Sometimes you work on meaningless stuff. A lot of ownerships. You have to stay with your cog-ish task and if you look a bit further you might find yourself in trouble due to "trespassing"!
