Figma is both a design tool and tool for organizing work. Set up your Teams and Projects well, so that they reflect how your organization works.
Use title pages: make the first page of every file have one frame with whatever "title page" info you want (we just have the title and short description). This makes thumbnails consistent and easy to scan.
Migrate over all "current" work (for your definition of current) and make a hard cut over from Sketch. This is important so that everybody knows that if you need something, it's in Figma. There will be some additional migration of things you missed, but you want everybody using Figma as the "official" source of truth.
Resizing not as expected?

One of the most common things I find I tell new Figma users. It’s a constraints thing.

Love the title page idea; Figma file names don't have enough detail, and thumbnails are too small to really see anything even if you squint.
How well did Figma do at importing your current work from Sketch when you switched?
In our experience it's "good enough", but we ended up rebuilding a lot of things along the way. Mostly because we want to be using a more consistent shared library of text styles, icons, and components. It's a work in progress but our experience has generally been that a lot of things are better, and almost nothing is worse.
It's great for sharing design libraries for sure!
