I don't care for Slack. There's nothing wrong with Slack. I just don't find a need for it when I already had email + IM. You know what I hate, though. People who show up one day and force Slack down the throat of an organization because "collaboration". Now, every day I hear "I didn't see that. Oh, you put in on Slack? Which channel?", "I put in on Slack", "I don't ever check my email, I just have Slack open", "Instead of filling up your inbox, I'm going to post this on 15 different slack channels" (which is why I have all the channels muted). All from people who can't type 10 words in a row without an emoji.

    I find slack nicer to use then MS teams, crashes a lot less too 😏

    But in saying that I still use slack for server deployment notifications... people tend to do random shit when you’re not around☹️

    ... ok point made, I’ll stop with the emojis now 😎

    As for he email vs slack, I prefer email myself, it fills in my 2 hour commute home dealing with the days emails and sitting here writing replies!

    In my case, slack was supportive.

    The Slack at my internship is only used for posting gifs. But that's the result when your company only has 6 other employees: You just tap the person on the shoulder

    I'm the opposite: I loathe email and much prefer chat clients like Slack.
