I have been working at Skype

Pros

Skype is surely on the leading edge of VoIP software and I feel as they complete their acquisition with Microsoft they will surely benefit many organizations.

Cons

Skype is not a business that is geared towards achieving businesses minded support and product development. There is also no training that is in place to better prepare sales on technical aspects of their products.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train and empower your employees especially your inside/outside sales reps to close and build business quicker
