    I have been working at Arm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Best part of working at Arm is that it's a good people-oriented company. Good compensation/vacations: Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Waltham location Personally, I'd have loved Arm even more if the office were in Cambridge/MA or in a cooler Boston area. Remote site of Arm: Not possible for everyone to be connected to headquarters/other big offices around the world.
