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

    Pros

    Warm welcoming environment, extremely flexible work/life balance, challenging, exciting work, empowered to make an impact, very minimal politics, engaging and transparent senior leadership, globally connected with peers at all levels around the world, a diverse & inclusive culture, many opportunities to work on different projects and with different groups/teams, excellent rewards package, outstanding benefits - best I have ever seen, every employee globally was just given an annual $8500 gift to use towards personal development, well being and family - encouraging each of us to invest in ourselves, try that new hobby, something you've always dreamed of doing - your choice, The Austin office has an incredible farm to table café with video games, foosball, ping pong, + a Starbucks cafe, IT help bar, walking trails, soccer fields, basketball court, gym, etc. and the friendliest facilities team you'll ever find welcoming you to Arm. Smartest engineers ever, doing amazing things, and an ecosystem of working with our partners in a humble culture, which is innovative and bursting the boundaries on what's possible for our future. I could go on and on! I've seen the Cambridge office (rated #2 in the UK on Glassdoor by the way) and the San Jose office as well, and have peers in China, India, Israel, Finland, France and more and all seem to love Arm as much as I do. I'm only 4 months in, but I already know that I will grow leaps and bounds here (I already have) and that this will be my home for years to come. And this role is not my last here, there is so much opportunity to stretch yourself out of your comfort zone. I know I've made the best career decision in joining Arm and highly recommend.

    Cons

    Because of our partnering ecosystem we don't have our name out there as much as other technology companies, because even though Arm technology enables 99% of the mobile devices out there, we empower our partners to be successful, so it is there name on the devices. But hopefully as we build our newest org out - the IoT space - our brand will be more recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Keep believing in and investing in your people, continue with your open door policy and transparency - you're doing all the right things. Couldn't be happier. :)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Arm (Austin, TX (US)) in December-2016.

    Interview

    Extremely professional bunch of recruiters do the basic screening process and schedule the interviews. You know before hand what topic a particular interviewer will be asking you questions on which is really helpful. The interview process was smooth and really good. All the interviewers make you feel comfortable and dont take you for granted.

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!
