Pros

Love it, love it love it. As a small business, it has al of the tools we need to run and operate our business.
My overall experience with Google Workspace has been great. There are so many useful tools within it and it is perfect for a business owner.
A really great place to work out of, ease of use is 10/10, and just really a workplace's best friend.

Pros

It has been an amazing platform for all our educational needs. This is probably the best product that a university or school can invest in especially during this pandemic situation.
Overall MS Teams is a very good software with amazing features and amazing customer support.
Everything is extremely user friendly, with a nice graphical interface and all the other added integrated features are really a nice bonus too.

Cons

For example, inserting code into a google doc is sometimes ugly and extremely inconvenient. I imagine there are other similar specialized use cases that should be added.
We did run into occasional glitches and bugs, especially where access permissions are concerned, which can be a problem.
At times when files are imported from external apps such as Microsoft 360 for example there are loss of formatting and data types which is inconvenient.

Cons

When video is being used and when a different background is used and when the person moves it looks very fake and weird.
It has bad connection when working remotely. With a team of 30 on one call, we were getting every other word in and it made meeting ineffective.
The most frustrating part is that teams can crash if there are too many people on at once.

If you are using Google Chrome already, Google Workspace may be a good choice for your company. It is full of resources and easy to deploy for your users, mainly if the all use GMail already.

Pros

Using Google Chrome already ? Seamless integration...

Good Suite

Reviewed 5 years ago

I don't use all the apps in this suite but I enjoy using the ones that I do use.

Pros

I use Gmail for personal use. It is great software. I like that you can add multiple accounts onto it. It's great that it links to YouTube and other sites. It shows up on my phone making it accessible. I like Google Docs and Slides. It's really easy for multiple users to edit one file from multiple places. This is my favourite feature. Drive is great. Sometimes when I don't have space on my laptop, I saved my files on Google Drive. This makes my life easier.

Cons

Hangout Meet isn't as easy to use or as connective as Skype or Microsoft Teams. It also isn't as well known. Microsoft Outlook is more accessible and collaborative than Google Calendar.

Very good. Ease of use is its most potent feature and if you have already been using Gmail for personal emails then you wont even feel the transition from personal to professional email.

Pros

Almost everything. From email management, to how many aliases I can create with the same email, to amount of storage I get.

Cons

Google meetings is not as good as Microsoft Teams. I think this is one area where Google Workspace could possibly improve.

Google workspace provides great tools for emails, spreadsheets, daily task management etc. It is very reliable with near 100% availability. It also gets integrated with other services like connecting business email with the GMail is breeze

I found Microsoft teams is better than Google meet, teams provide more tools and features than Google Meet. Working with Google docs is different than MS word and it is not fully compatible with the MS word.

I love using it to collaborate on documents in real-time. It is much easier than SharePoint or Microsoft Teams to use.

Pros

It's very easy to manage and collaborate on documents within Google Workspace.

Cons

It is not very widely used in the judicial industry because of concerns about document security and wanting to keep everything in-house.

Some vagueness around Google Spaces/Chat - more focus on deeper features in this area and it could very easily outcompete Microsoft Teams and Slack

Convincing Microsoft Alternative

Reviewed 4 years ago

Excellent. I don't have a bad word to say about G Suite.

Pros

Google's G Suite has everything that you need to replace Microsoft: Docs = Word; Sheets = Excel; Slides = PowerPoint; Meet/Chat = Teams. In my opinion, Google's collaborative nature far outweighs the collaboration that Microsoft has to offer.

Cons

Nothing. It's hard to make a case for Microsoft, in my mind. I spent the first 20+ years of my life only using Microsoft, and having used Google/Gmail/G Suite for years now, I don't care to go back.

A comprehensive bundle for businesses to operate efficiently

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, I'm happy with Google Workspace. Its pricing is very reasonable in comparison to its services. Though a few products could be improved, it still has everything a business needs to operate at scale.

Pros

Google Workspace contains a variety of business tools that I use on a daily basis. Gmail, Hangout, Google Drive, and Google Docs are all included. It is less expensive than other options, and it allows for seamless integration of one service with another. It also works well with Google Cloud Platform services.

Cons

Google Hangout requires enhancements. I've used Microsoft Teams, and it's a little less productive when compared to that. The user must exert effort to ensure that he does not miss any chats.

I love the ease of use of the software and that everything really works well together - from cloud storage to calculations to presentations - it really feels great.

Cons

I am missing team communications tools. Here Microsoft with its product "Teams" is just the way to go forward for me. Google Workspace is great but it - at least at the moment - cant beat Microsoft. Though it is way less pricy. That has to be kept in mind.

Google Workspace Is Efficient and Effective! Highly Recommend!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Our business is 100% remote and we have been since we started 8 years ago. Google Workspace allows us the ability to work together virtually with high efficiency though we are not in the same room very often. Sharing of files, task management, and calendar planning are critical to our business and all doing via Google Workspace. Absolutely happy with this experience.

Pros

Google Workspace is a multifaceted system that integrates cloud storage, task/project management, team collaboration, and business management into a single platform. Of all the platforms our company uses, we depend most heavily on Google Workspace to sustain and perform our daily business. It is dependable and provides vast options to optimize how we do business. As a completely remote business, cloud-based storage and ability to collaborate efficiently is vital for us. Google Workspace allows us to meet, organize, plan, and develop our business from a multitude of angles with great success. Highly recommend Google Workspace to any company looking to make a change!

Cons

Google Chat/Messaging is the only feature we don't use as often. It is a little behind what Zoom and Microsoft Teams Meeting have to offer. I would suggest improving Google Chat/Meeting.

Absolutely the Best!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I absolutely love working with Google Workspace. While I used to use teams and I do love some of the integration, the ease of use and the learning curve of Google Workspace is perfect and everyone in our company uses it to its full advantage.

Pros

I love how everything is integrated, syncs between a team, allows you to communicate and share with different departments and it's very simple to use. There is not a lot of confusion when we are onboarding new employees.

Cons

I wish there was a desktop app, like Microsoft Teams, that allowed you to chat, schedule, and conference all in one place that integrated into the areas that you don't need at your fingertips.

Google Workspace Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, Google Workspace is a great quality product as it offers many beneficial features that have have allowed me to improve on effective communication, collaboration, and performance. I use Google Workspace everyday and I would recommend this product to any business small or large.

Pros

Many features like task scheduling, task management, real-time chat, and the ability to share your screen I think are the most important and impactful. Google Workplace is easy to use and provides so many benefits for all businesses. Integration within my organization was simple which is usual for most software products. I like how I was able to use all the features this software has to offer to help me grow and improve my performance within my job.

Cons

The communications features provided by Google Workspace can be improved. They have competitors like Microsoft Teams and Skype that provide the same communication features. Other various apps like Google Sheets, Google Docs are still improving and they are far from having the effectiveness of their competitor like Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word. Google has to spend a lot of time, money, and effort promoting their products because they have large competitors. Other than their competition, I have no further dislikes about this product.

Google Workspace is bass and drums to us

Reviewed 2 years ago

Google Workspace has become the foundation of our daily work. Nearly 500 employees and we no longer use Microsoft Office (I believe occasional licenses for specific customer cases). It was a great turnaround and it gave us a lot of productivity, space savings and agility between the teams. Still Microsoft with some more features, but the winner in this case is Google Workspace. The experience is just excellent.

Pros

Easy to use, fast, reliable, on the smatphone, desktop, anyplace and anytime. Tons of tools in a single stack. It's all we ever ask but in the past it was tough, nowadays it is really easy to all users.

Cons

OK some features in Google are simple. But we have speed and easy to use.

The benefits of Google Workspace

Reviewed a year ago

Overall Google vs. Microsoft I prefer Google it is much more accesible as a cloud offering than Microsoft.

Pros

Google Workspace is practical, well use globally and easy to manage with no training! Folks can hit the ground running!

Cons

I feel sometimes it can get clunnkand too many options you can lose the original objectives of what you were intending to do. Keep it simple with enhancements some basic tasks can become very cumbersome and trivial.

Very easy to use and great email and file management for small teams.

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Makes managing emails and files for a small team of people really easy. We are able to manage our whole business emails, file system, and communications using just GSuite.

Cons

For larger or enterprise level teams it can be limited in it's use. It's starts to become harder to use with teams larger than 30 people.

Pros

Love Google gSuite! Can access from anywhere and from any type of device. Will even convert msft docs to gsuite.

Cons

There isn't as deep of functionality as Microsoft products, and Microsoft offers more storage. It's up to you.

Save Time with TEAMS for PC Business Owners/Users!

Reviewed 2 years ago

It was good, but in the end Google won me over with Workspace and the affiliated Google networks.

Pros

I liked how we could view meetings from a browser, mobile app or a desktop instalment. The quality of the meetings improved with the downloaded desktop version so I highly recommend you download the app.

Cons

The conferencing was an excellent feature however, my video screen sharing would great some video performance issues with attendees. Overall, an excellent SaaS for small business owners who use PC.

Useful in communication

Reviewed 4 years ago

Useful for communication, a bit limited regarding cooperation.

Pros

It is easy to communicate with others and collaborate on Office files. Meetings are easily set up and conducted.

Cons

Sometimes certain settings are difficult to find. Also, I find it a drawback that the focus is on office files. For example, Google Workspace can handle its own and MS Office files very well. Therefore, I prefer to work with Google Workspace

College Experience: Great in Theory, Adequate in Execution

Reviewed 3 years ago

Great for college settings and explicit multi-team organizations. However, Slack and Google Workspace are similarly viable options that could be considered based on the desire for video conferencing quality.

Pros

For the pandemic classroom setting, the ability to have classes/teams and channels was INCREDIBLE, as well as managed file systems that allowed for teachers to share resources and students to manage their file submissions in an easy manner.

Cons

Video quality was often poor, which is likely a function of compounded feature loading (f.e. having audio calls while collaborating on a DOCX file often lead to clipping and pronounced lagging).

This software has a lot of potential for strong collaboration, but I'm not sure its worth the price

Reviewed 3 years ago

So far, file sharing has been the most useful thing.

Pros

We've recently transitioned from Google Docs/Workspace to using teams for staff at my part time job. Ultimately, my favorite thing about it is the ability to file share and group edit documents in word, without having to download them from google or work in a google doc. Word/Excel, are more robust, and this saves steps.

Cons

The price seems like a lot for largely similar capabilities to what Google does for free.

Missing the Google ecosystem

Reviewed 3 years ago

Even being a standard tool in many companies, the Google ecosystem is far better, especially regarding file management, sharing and team editing.

Pros

Relatively easy to use. A standard workspace for the whole organization including group chats and file sharing.

Cons

Lack of features regarding chat answers, insufficient management in file sharing and team editing. With time, teams groups and files tend to get messy and incomplete.

Microsoft Teams has yet to catch up to Zoom

Reviewed 2 years ago

Unpleasant software, would not purchase

Pros

Teams is convenient as a workspace - like a mix of slack & zoom where documents can be stored and shared.

Cons

Teams is annoying as a meeting software! The software is not very intuitive and when sharing screen you can't mark it up (i.e. draw on the shared screen), which is annoying. It can also be difficult to see which users are present when their video is off, because the on-screen box they appear in is much smaller for non-video participants (unlike zoom).
