Changing, not for the better

Initially it was a great place to work, and it still is if you are an engineer. If you are not, I would think twice. Company is undergoing a lot of change, and it's unclear where it will end up


Decent salaries.


Constant restructures, shortsightedness

Great place to work with a lot of uncertainty

Great environment to work with a new site (Cambridge campus) and hybrid working mindset. Benefits were great initially but now things have changed. Be prepared for continuous changes.

Fantastic work place

I loved working at Arm. I would love to work there again. It is a fast paced place with some very clever people. Very clever people sometimes find communication difficult but I'm good at finding a way of getting to know them better and then they forget to be self conscious.

Fun and Engaging

A really good balance of workload and learning. I was enrolled on a learning course as part of my introduction to the department I would be working in that really benefitted my work. Everyone I met was great to get along and work with and most people will be willing to help you out

Brilliant teams; variable leaders

Culture at Arm is very inclusive and vibrant, with brilliant people working together on innovative and really novel concepts and ideas. The renumeration and working condition are also very good. However, the main challenge is - in certain parts of the organisation - unpredictable "leadership" who rule rather than lead, and senior managers who will do their best to "look good" rather than "do good."

Unique culture

Great company had a unique culture in which I was able to learn a lot of skills and grow as a person. I would strongly recommend this organisation to anyone

No job security

The work benefits and flexibility are great however, there is a feeling of these being used to try and compensate for the culture. There is no management support, agreed expectations or targets which makes delivering impossible. No guidance as a new starter, everything is to be figured out yourself. It is currently being run my contract workers who are treated better than permanent members of staff and have more security than those employed. It is very much a 'if your face fits' company which is hugely disappointing when you have made such huge efforts to make positive impact to the business. Only work here if you can afford to not have a job at the drop of a hat without due cause, warning or consistent and structured feedback.


The perks!


Terrible culture. Money can buy you anything attitude.

Great Work life balance structure

I just took every challenge in my stride, working in different time zones.I enjoyed the work culture and diverse range of people employed at ARM. The company is a tech giant in the market place who is globally respected.


Flexible to work off site if needed

Progressive place to work

great benefits, culture, empoyerability prospects, fun, innovative, progressive, they work hard to get managers to develop and value their staff. great core beliefs and great way to assess performance. The HR department work really hard to make it a great place to work but sadly managers are not interested in helping them achieve that vision.


everything, can't fault it


poor engineering leaders who are quickly promoted with no people skills

Great workplace

I worked there for three months as an intern. Real, challenging work, although not overwhelming. Friendly colleagues, relaxed atmosphere, lots of social events and facilities such as a gym. Beautiful location in Cherry Hinton. Somewhat flexible working hours was a plus. The only downside was that my manager went on vacation towards the end and I had already finished my task, so I was a bit lost. I don't think I had been expected to finish early and the work they gave me afterwards was difficult and I was not given much guidance. This was a minor hiccup though and I would absolutely work there again.

A creative environment

A creative environment to work in. Very long unsociable hours required in order to reach targets. Casual work meant unreliable earnings. Jobs security is not a guarantee.


Gaining invaluable contacts within the entertainment industry


Casual salary
