  • João Oliveira SimõesDesign Lead, 44 Studio
    Pros: 

    Possibility to be logged on multiple teams, being available at all times on mobile and desktop, and easy to connect with other services.

    Cons: 

    I'm pretty happy with Slack, so no cons for now :)

    As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.

  • Amrith ShanbhagCommunity at Product Hunt & Feathrd
    Pros: 

    Easiest way to get everything under one roof.

    Cons: 

    Building active communities is really hard.

    I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.

    Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.

  • Pros: 

    I collaborate with multiple organizations and seamlessly integrate apps into the chat function for domain name availability to trello cards.

    Cons: 

    Wish they had a better app market to integrate with Slack.

    Overall this product works smoothly and the updates the developer releases are meaningful and truly addresses a lot of the bugs I generally see the week before a release. They true stay on top of the product and make a great interface for user interaction.

  • Pros: 

    Easy to use, nice to collaborate with my team!

    Cons: 

    I am really satisfied, didn't find anything you could improve!

    We use Slack at work! We are really satisfied with the tool - so we directly integrated eyeson in Slack ;) https://www.producthunt.com/search?q=eyeson+for+slack

  • Vjatseslav GedrovitsSoftware Engineer @ Malwarebytes
    Pros: 

    simple, usable, fast

    Cons: 

    sometimes slow code snippets

    This is one of the bast conversation tools I've used personally.

    Fast & simple with a different ways to express your thoughts.

    Fancy code & snippet tools, but sometimes link preview feature can be hell :(

  • Adam S HurwitzAndroid Developer
    Pros: 

    less email

    Cons: 

    managing multiple conversations could be easier

    I love using emails less.

    UX Improvement: Having conversation tabs similar to any modern web browser so important conversations don't get lost in the left menu drawer.

    New Feature: Calendar. This would hopefully kill our company's horrific use of Microsoft Outlook once and for all :-)

  • Brea NinetynineAssociate Marketing Manager, 99designs
    Pros: 

    Chat rooms, privacy, cat gifs

    Cons: 

    Consolidate threads

    We use Slack at 99designs for all internal comms and have even implemented a Slack plugin for customers on our site to help manage their design contests. It's a great communication tool, offering the ability to create various chat rooms for different purposes (we have serious ones like #Announcements and silly ones like #dadjokes) and communicate across our international offices. We also recently started using Slack's video chat feature and definitely like it more than Google Hangouts - better connectivity for sure.

  • Chad ReidCat enthusiast.
    Pros: 

    Intuitive, with a nice interface.

    Cons: 

    Suffers from downtime now and again.

    It's a flashier version of HipChat, but not demonstrably better necessarily. Although I do like how shared Google documents show up in chats.

    - Perfect for internal-communication in a business.

    Cons: 

    Ummm, no such cons so far:)

    Saying that Slack will replace email communication channel, wouldn't be an overstatement :)

  • Jay SinghEntrepreneur & Growth Strategy
    Pros: 

    Great tool for team collaboration and most of 3rd party apps provide ready integration with Slack. I use Google Calendar, Freshdesk, Jira!

    Cons: 

    Not able to find out one yet

    You can also set recurring reminders for meetings in channels and for yourself.

  • Johnathan HollandI truly obsess over helping others..
    Pros: 

    Slack is a great communication tool for teams. Especially when you're remote and want to get a message to your team faster than an email.

    Cons: 

    It can get a bit distracting just like a text message so I tend to shut off notifications when doing a specific task.

    Overall great product!

  • Jair Silvastoryrocket
    Pros: 

    can coordinate different things with a single click clack is the best, and the integrated applications are the best

    Cons: 

    can be a little tedious at times when they are in a large community although sometimes it notifies me things I do not understand much

    slack is ideal for me because I work remotely and I can co-ordinate with the design team and also with the development team
