    I worked at Skype full-time

    Pros

    Cool product, the old Skype people are great, european influence, chance to influence the world

    Cons

    Disconnected upper management and middle management left to run wild. Too many unconnected kingdoms; geographic distribution wasn't handled well.

    Blind application of the letter agile software methodologies without understanding the core principles.

    Once Microsoft management took over it descended into a political hell where engineers had very little influence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to drill down past layers of middle management that are only managing up to fix the real problems that are happening at the execution level.
