I'm planning to switch from Microsoft(Redmond) to LinkedIn(SF bay). They do have different interview process; want to check if anyone has been in the process and what happens with the stocks? Anyone went this route after acquisition? And leveling(pre acquisition employees please contribute for this one)? 61-62 should get Sr.?

They print you out a neat little graph visualizing your connections for you to keep which is nice. And they will likely do panel interviews, Apple style, 2 on 1 or more, so if you mess up a coding problem it counts twice. But overall I don't think the difficulty of their interviews is high, you just have to not beat yourself.
