Pros

Finding colleagues, creating groups uploading and viewing the uploaded Imagesa are pretty awesome features. Its like youtube,facebook and instagram feeded in one small app.
Easy to connect with organization. It is very good application.
It is a very easy to use, intuitive and very useful tool to send and download files. It also has an online viewer that allows you to view the document without having to download it.

Pros

I use this software almost every hour and it's super easy to use. The fact you can share your screen with someone without needing to be in the call in my eyes is brilliant.
Great organizational opportunity to make a team of contact people per office/department. Love the ability to use other apps with it.
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.

Cons

Personally I have had a hard time understanding the complicated interface and all the features.
The synchronization of files from the desktop to the web loses data, although I do not know if it is the fault of my internet connection.

Cons

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.
Threads can become confusing. Replies can get lost in larger messaging groups and conversations confused on the threads layout.
When video is being used and when a different background is used and when the person moves it looks very fake and weird.
