    I have been working at Arm

    Pros

    I'm here for about 10 months. The atomsphere in the company is really great. I see everybody keen to help each other and lots of new cool technology stuff every day. There are lots of internal training opportunities and a whole bunch of internal sessions to about new technologies being developed.

    Cons

    None critical at the moment. Just problems that every big company has: IT not very efficient and stuff like that.

    Advice to Management

    Open source presence/contributions from our company will be a key to attract even more developers to our ecossystem. Keep up and grow the good work on that area!

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

    Pros

    Most colleagues are pleasant Some interesting problems to work on

    Cons

    The standard of software engineering is very low here, with little testing and poor build/deployment tooling. There's little sign of strategic decision making, we are expected to help whichever customer is shouting loudest today. Getting hardware takes an extremely long time, and internal customers will scream at you for problems that are out of your hands. There is very little coordination of work, with multiple...

    You say the right things, but nothing seems to change. Break out of your bubble and engage with the staff doing the actual work.
