    You'll touch almost every player in consumer electronics, from the silicon provider to the OEM to the apps players.

    Some conflict re British mentality vs US mentality.

    Pros

    Open door policy with upper management, start-up atmosphere allows room for growth and creativity, great benefits and plenty of PTO, good size gym in office, on-site and off-site activities

    Cons

    ARM is a worldwide company which means there are occasional early and late meetings with the UK and APAC. Staff is a bit short makes it hard to execute full potential on everything.

    Pros

    The company has leading edge technologies for Silicon Design Companies and the TOP management have vision and focus. Friendly environment and dedicated professionals.

    Cons

    Surprisingly fort a silicon architect company their IT systems need update as they run very old versions of SW platforms and it is amazing they can deliver IP given their systems need a $300M upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your IT systems into the 21st Century.

    Pros

    Great company culture, everybody believes in ARM and wants it succeed. Engineers given freedom to innovate. Fantastic work/life balance, with great benefits, tons of vacation, and a sabbatical.

    Cons

    IT is second-rate for a company of this size. Terrible support, reliability, equipment, budgets. New CEO is bringing some of what is bad in other tech companies into ARM - major reorgs, trying to force common methodologies, penny-pinching.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what made ARM so unique and fun to work at. Invest in proper IT and give engineers the best tools available to do their job.

    Pros

    I like my boss. Interesting problems to solve. Pay is good IMO. Suggestions and ideas are welcomed and you feel you are contributing

    Cons

    Depending on the project/customer hours can be long. Dealing with other design centers is not always smooth, but an interesting experience nonetheless.

    Advice to Management

    I feel management is doing well at the personal level. We had staffing issues (not enough people) in the past and they have responded. At the macro business level I don't think I'm qualified to know if they are doing a good job, but I do know they are very cognizant of keeping our top position as well as trying to grow the markets we are in.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is an interesting blend between serious and fun, with everyone here super smart.. It's very much a "work hard, play hard" type group here in the office. YMMV regarding working remotely, but my director is quite accommodating and flexible in this regard.

    Cons

    There's only one way in or out of the building/area in the Austin office, and not a lot of food options unless you want to drive at least 5-10 minutes. We do have food trucks and group orders from local eateries, but it's pretty much the same thing every week then.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    It 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
