    Excellent company. Great benefits, a lot of growth opportunites and the chance to make a real difference in Technology

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company is a true technology enabler. Their business model and products are all focused on providing chip designs, tools and software that equip a broad ecosystem of partners to build innovative consumer devices. The company is very collaborative, intelligent and innovative. You have the chance to influence the direction of technology. Strong team spirit and a broad array of expertise amongst all employees.

    ConsIt is all about contributing and delivering on time. You are measured on what you bring to the game and once you get involved in something you have to follow through and deliver. Everything is controlled by the Exec Mgt in Cambridge. At times it can be frustrating. Long hours and the expectation that you are available 24/7

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    excellent but...

    Unspecified (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    Prosvery successful in all aspects, design innovation, customer infrastructure support, plenty more

    how do you not recommend this co. to a friend. It is a train, can not be stopped, at the moment.

    Consmany friends ask what we are doing different, to them we are walking text book OOE pipeline same as those that came before, intel, sparc, mips, etc. In their view eventually we look like pentium 4.

    penny pinchers: two monitor maximum, your lap top counts as one, lol

    IT infrastructure is awful, unable to connect to LSF, still using eXceed (not kidding), some attributable to fast growth, mostly not.

    Big company infrastructure overhead without the benefits: SAP, time sheets, IT ticket system (file a ticket, get ignored, call your buddy in IT, get it fixed, pure hell when you are trying to hit schedule commits)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work, but.....

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsMarket leader - innovative products. Interesting and smart people. Good salary and compensation structure. Good work/life balance. Having an ARM business card opens doors. Executives easily accessible.

    ConsSmall company, but getting a big company bureaucracy. Best and brightest not always retained or promoted if bringing viewpoints contrary to what is wanted to be heard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCulture is changing in the US. Remember what got you here - don't lose that. Don't read your own headlines about how great you are. Or at least, don't believe them. Continue to innovate - continue to dig for the best, and find those bright minds and listen to those crazy ideas - from wherever they may come.
