    I worked at Arm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Average salary & good benefits

    Cons

    Harassment (sexual & mental) & racism - I faced this with UK team. After this faced a severe depression and complained to HR who shouted at me instead and showed the door!

    Learning - minimal. If you have a good manager who likes you then you might get average work otherwise, you are left with grunt work. All valuable work goes to UK & US teams

    I wasted my 2 years on this company and left with depression due to the harassment I faced. Don’t waste your life with Arm, no amount of salary or benefits is worth it!

    Advice to Management

    I don’t think this company has any scope of improvement. They only focus on UK (sometimes, US) & treat Indians like slaves who don’t deserve any respect

    I worked at Arm full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    ARM is a good company in terms of employee friendly policies. It used to be better 5 years back. Pay is reasonably well. Provision of sabbatical is a blessing for the employee. Communication from the top management on company's progress has improved in the last few years. New tools for talent management, development is very handy to people leaders and managers.

    Cons

    My feedback is only related to PDG, that too for PDG leadership team. PDG management failed to implement people related policies in my case. I have become sick and got NI in the recent performance review. I have fulfilled all my obligations as a group manager and none of my objectives is not completed. Manager didn't give any valid reasons.
    Also without any intimation & discussion with me, my manager changed my role & designation. This came as a mail to general public and i came to know from that. After this i have resigned and my manager never responded to my resignation mail. Also he went & changed my designation in SAP after my resignation email. I have worked for 10.5 years for ARM and i was the first person to join & start my group in Bangalore. Last 10 years all my performance reviews were always Good or Excellent.
    Some one may be surprised why i am writing this feedback, rather than go thro' whistle blow process. I didnt have physical strength then to fight it back and lost trust in ARM value system. However my group took up the case and fought with the management but it was brushed it off.
    I was very much disappointed with PDG management for this unfair treatment, not treating as a human being.
    I am giving this feedback so that leaders behave as leaders not as arrogant dictators.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat employees as human being. Also implement policies in day to day work. Please don't be arrogant
