Pros

Overall experience has been good. Very happy for the product and how it helps us stay organized with the tickets we have coming in.
I love that its very user friendly to use ad easy to manage tasks. I love the interface make it easy to get tickets handled and provide the best customer service for my job.
We ended up switching to a free service which better fit our needs. All in all it was a pleasant experience and we used it for 3 years to manage the chat on our site.

Pros

So we're very happy that we can collaborate directly with Rocket. Chat developers and hopefully having good relationship in the long term.
It has some great features and it's great that you have so much control over the software as administrator.
It's really good to use and good to create a public and private channel to do conversation in group. I also love the future of rocket chat API, so you can do a message programmatically.

Cons

Tremendously disappointing for a company that sells ticketing software to have such a poor interaction when it comes to using it.
Non-Existent & TERRIBLE Customer Service. You are just a number to them.
If you ever need support from Zendesk then it is horrible.

Cons

And about usability: first of all, it does lack some nice-to-haves here and there. It cannot be integrated with SharePoint, so there are no status updates when going in a meeting.
It is difficult to locate old texts. There is no sending of audios.
All we want is a voice call. Most of our machines intentionally do not have webcams, yet we have no choice but to select "Video Chat" and then dismiss the dialogs warning us that no camera was found.
