    I have been working at Skype full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft's Skype office in Stockholm had a great team with fantastic colleagues to work with, working on a product that revolutionized communication.
    Beautiful office with an open atmosphere.

    Cons

    As with most acquisitions, Microsoft did in the long run a poor job in keep driving innovation and user value, and instead keeps people busy with integration projects and merging of tech-stacks.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lay off an entire site of experienced software engineers, but find a new agenda for them instead - Microsoft has lots of work and unused opportunities ahead.
