Overall Satisfaction with G Suite

We use G Suite for the majority of our collaboration. Within my department, the most common items are Google Sheets and Google Docs. We often validate data in Google Sheets and being able to see all historical edits, by whom, etc., allows us to work together to get things done and double check for errors.

Pros

  • Collaboration. Being able to see things live, as they're being worked on and by whom lets us work together as well as if we were in the same room.
  • The fact that G Suite does a myriad of things and integrates between all of these things is incredibly useful and, with some exceptions, highly intuitive.
  • 2 step verification allows us to be confident that the sensitive data that we work with is safe and secure.

Cons

  • The row limits in Google Sheets, though understandable as it's browser-based, has been very frustrating at times.
  • Some formulas are still missing in Google Sheets that I'm able to find in Excel.
  • There are some formatting limitations in Google Docs that, again, are quite frustrating.
  • Knowing that everyone is working with the same up-to-date data while collaborating is incredible and has decreased time consuming meetings, expensive mistakes, etc.
  • Mistakes happen. When they do, being able to roll back time on a project and see who made the mistake and when allows us to quickly fire the person to prevent it from happening again. Kidding. It allows us to see how the mistake was made so we can put safeguards and training in place to improve our people and our processes.
  • The mobile applications have let us continue to collaborate and work even when we're away from our computers. We're all for work/life balance but having the option has gotten us out of some difficult situations.
Being able to connect data into a Google doc, a Google Data Studio report and Google slides is magical. Imports and exports between things and questioning if each of them are up to data at any given time is a nightmare. G Suite inspires confidence in all the work you've done while collaborating as a team.
