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

This is a really great piece of software that has been well designed and implemented and does a great job in solving many problems and improving productivity.
Overall the product is good, and a number of addons provide good expanded integration and functionality.
It is your own server so it is the best to secure by your own way.

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

It seems management had some terrible ideas which is why all the mind-share seems to be behind nextcloud these days.
When first added, there were a few errors that I had to have my host sort, because I couldn't find any documentation on them for the OwnCloud.
In big folders with a lot of files, this take a while and it use a lot of hard drive. So when your OS starts client will kill the HD until finishing the indexing of files.
