I have been working at Arm full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The benefits and salary are competitive. HR cares about building a benefit package that emphasizes work-life balance. If you work hard, you are recognized for it (in terms of pay, and in terms of respect from coworkers and management). Sabbatical program is great (4wks every 4 years).

Willing to invest in innovative ideas. Flat hierarchy and lean workforce mentality mean your contributions are needed and appreciated, and your inputs are respected.

Full of really good people who are passionate about what they do. Much less variance in experience between teams than some of the giants (e.g. Amazon, Microsoft).

A dynamic environment from a company that is always listening to feedback and always willing to change. If they don't get it right the first time, they will listen to you and change. New programs constantly popping up to improve employee experience.

As a woman in engineering, the company has been doing good work trying to increase support for its women. I feel they have the right attitudes and are promoting the right kind of policies & thinking. More to be done, but off to a great start and working hard to keep improving.

Cons

Still a few growing pains. We used to be a lot smaller and are growing quite fast, so some of our systems (in IT, HR, etc) might not be as polished yet as bigger companies. For example internal documentation is sometimes not as organized across the intranet as it could be. But they are working on it!

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing and don't be afraid to improve or do away with things that don't work. Identify pain points for employees and continue to invest in improving those experiences.

    I have been working at Arm full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, everyone pulling in the same direction (no internal politics).
    Great benefits (>20 days vacation, incredible health plans, sabbatical every four years). Flexible working, forward looking, great people.

    Cons

    It's so good that people hardly ever leave, which means thinking can be a little stale at times... however, the company has been hiring like crazy over the last year or so, so that has brought in new thinking and new ideas.
