    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: 

    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.

    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 :(

  • 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

    Pros: 

    Fully featured yet smooth and fast.

    Very efficient notifications.

    Cons: 

    The repeated third party apps integration tips is almost spammy.

    A little more inline tips on text formatting would help

    I use this one everyday, will not be installing the native app for my desktop and I really wish this was available for mobile as well. As a web technology addict, I'd say this is one beautifully made web-app and it totally does what it needs to do. Even better.

  • 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: 

    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.

    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 :-)

    Pros: 

    Easy to set up, simple to use, awesome for remote teams

    Cons: 

    None that I can see

    Transformed the way we deal with freelancers and sped up our communication exponentially. It means that we can have reactive conversations, essentially 'spinning around in the chair and chatting,' when we think of something.

    Pros: 

    Different channels, cool integrations with other apps (google analytics, poll etc)

    Cons: 

    Thread function could be improved

    It's a great app for chatting with your team (workmates). What I like it has different channels you can create and post relevant chats (like marketing, sales, product dev etc). Also, you can integrate this with other tools like for eg. google analytics and let them send a notification message to a specified channel in case of anomalities etc. Great alternative to skype for business!

    Cons: 

    Ummm, no such cons so far:)

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

    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.

    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.

    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
