Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    Negative Changes

    Jun 6, 2022 - Finance and Accounting in San Jose, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There were a lot of clever people who worked hard to build Arm. Good medical benefits. Arm will continue to be profitable, but whether it is still a good place to work depends upon where you are located and your management chain, some are weak and cannot protect you, others have more influence and you can thrive.

    Cons

    The company has lost its way, jobs in US are being moved to the UK resulting in a loss of long term employees who have knowledge and history, it is a shame to see the negative changes to a once justifiably proud Arm culture. Unfortunately, Arm is now driven by the whims of Softbank, so upper management must serve its master.

    Pros

    great engineering team there was a good engineering leadership great UK company culture

    Cons

    Lost direction, controlled by Softbank. leadership currently is opportunism and speculation. Hard work with low pay. a few months' experiences is ok for graduate new engineers. if you are really looking for something in your career, there are many other better choices.

    Avoid the mess!

    Jun 14, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Had a really great total comp before they started revoking large parts of my reward package and basically gave me a pay decrease.

    Cons

    The entire org is a straight up mess! Overly bloated teams, but not the correct resources required to accomplish the work efficiently. US employees get the shaft in career development compared to the UK. Complete uncertainty day to day on what to expect from Softbank for the future of the company. Not knowing at any minute if my job was at risk of layoff creating so much stress that I left for my own mental health.
