    It's all good after the acquisition except for switching to office 365 from gsuite, which is not too bad. You guys will love it! 💰💰💰

    Have they changed the stock grant targets for LNKD folks?

      I can't speak for everyone obv, but I've received very similar grants post acquisition.

    Teams whose primary function was to keep LNKD running as a public company, some in-house IT. Former was announced on the day of aquisition itself, latter happened slowly over few months. Company has been transparent and open about it.
    I don't think there were mass layoffs in other areas.

    I wonder how long they’ll let LI have their own comp structure. We pay significantly more than Microsoft at the same level (similar to Facebook, Google, etc) so I’ve seen many Microsoft people switch over to LI and get higher comp.

      Hate coding quizzes but studying hard for better future!
      I guess it will depend on LinkedIn’s growth rate and profitability. If it keeps growing at expected pace, I think we will let LinkedIn do whatever they have been doing.

    I’m sure FB would be happy to see that happen.

    Interesting. I always thought that Amy would standardize comp as soon as the acquisition closed to optimize LinkedIn’s PnL
