Overall Satisfaction with Slack

We use Slack for everything. As a fully distributed company, we need a great chat tool. We occasionally use other chat tools with some of our customers and they are not nearly as close to Slack. We also use Slack to build a lot of integrations that connect all our systems together.

Pros

  • Easy integration builds
  • Simple and dependable chat
  • Increases engagement between team members

Cons

  • I would like to see more integrations
  • I would like to make it easier to pull data into Slack
  • Our culture wouldn't be the same without Slack
  • We have been able to seamlessly work between coworkers
  • It gets expensive with more integrations
While Slack isn't perfect, Google and Microsoft don't hold a candle to Slack. They feel like they were built 20 years ago and nobody likes to use them. Occasionally, I'm forced to use those and the teams don't communicate nearly as effectively. Slack is a joy to work in. The others give me dread.

Do you think Slack delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Yes

Did Slack live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Slack go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Slack again?

Yes

I think Slack works great for people who care about working together—whether it's between co workers in office or remote work. I was nervous to work for a fully distributed company but Slack has made it so helpful to connect with my team and stay connected in meaningful ways everyday.
