    I have been working at Arm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing people - the leadership team live and breathe the Arm core values and this is passed down to everyone.
    Work conditions are very good and benefits are shared, with employee welfare being a high priority. I'm sure it pays dividends - happy motivated staff will do a good job in return, and people seem to stay for a long time, some even leave and come back! Presumably because the grass is not greener on the other side.
    Innovation and ideas are encouraged, they are not a greedy grabbing company and aim to contribute both to the industry and society. Personally, I find this a refreshing change. I am really happy working here. I work with high quality people where arrogance is discouraged and collaboration is the rule. It's growing fast - that's probably my one concern, hope it's not over-expansion. Definitely the best company I have worked for and I hope to stay here for a long time.

    Cons

    I am really happy working here - any niggles are minuscule in perspective of having such a great work environment and a high quality management team. Slight concern that a lot of management seems to have shifted to the USA even though the bulk of staff are in the UK.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with what you are doing - don't change the wonderful culture and values which make this such an amazing company. Don't have all the management in the USA - we need to see a career path in the UK too!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arm.

    Interview

    Premier entretien après l'envoi de la candidature. On reçoit dans le mail un lien HireView valable trois jours ouvrables pour passer un entretien vidéo. Ce n'est pas un entretien en direct, mais enregistré.
    Des questions plus ou moins techniques sont posées.
    30 secondes de préparation pour chaque question, puis 3 minutes pour répondre.

    Ensuite, j'ai eu un test de code assez simple ou il fallait compter le nombre de bits à 1 dans un nombre en décimal. Des tests sur les exemples simples sont fournis dans l'interface. Bizarrement, il n'y avait pas de limite de temps pour coder.

Company Updates

  • Woohoo! We've been recognized by Glassdoor as one of the most recommend employers in the UK, coming in at #2! Our employees love to refer other highly talented people to join Arm!

    20 Most Recommended Employers in the UK - Glassdoor Blog (UK)

    Around one in four new hires originate from an employee referral, and referred employees tend to be a better fit for a company. It stands to reason then, that the likelihood for an employee to recommend their company to a friend is a significant measure that both job seekers and recruiters should pay attention to.

  • Congratulations to ARM CEO Simon Segars on joining the Softbank Board of Directors and also being listed on Glassdoor UK's Highest Rated CEOs!
