Opportunities and comp

Heard that iPO is still planned for March 2023. Mgt must living in utopia if they think that Arm should be valued at $60B given the market conditions. Also employees were offered fewer RSU shares then prior years. Company is so cheap.

Too much stress

I believe most have been polishing resumes and considering other options for a while now. I am very worried about getting another offer, although many tell me that finding a new job is easier than ever which is encouraging. But is that really so?... — read more 

Time to move on

It took me less than a month to find a new job, even though I thought it wouldn't be so easy due to my age. I hope others have a similar experience with looking for a new job.

Pelion layoffs ?

Where to find more information on the Pelion (spinoff from ARM) Layoffs? I heard almost all of the management in the US were laid off and were told last week ( December 1st , 2nd and 3rd)

Cancelled layoffs

Numerous layoffs were cancelled at the last minute in the former ISG division, after rounds of redundancy consultations and loads of stress and worry for people. People are aghast to say at least. Rumour has it that Simon Segars was told by UK... — read more 

Gervais Principle

Anyone familiar with the Gervais principle? It seems to be on full display at ARM. Not just the structure (middle managing clueless id–ts and upper management sociopaths) but with the acquisition this is usually the last stage in a companies... — read more

Mid-Year Review Axed

The company just axed mid-year reviews due to revenue for non-graduates quietly announced on the Home Page. No promotions or salary changes. Wonder does that also apply to performance categories as well. That would be a nice cop out to... — read more
