Pros

Overall, I am very happy with WordPress and highly recommend it to everyone who wants to have a bang for their buck. It's fully functional and a very powerful CMS app.
The plugin marketplace is great, you can always find a great and suitable theme for your website needs. WP is famous enough to have integrations with almost every service and company out there.
I love being able to preview any and all changes before committing to it. Also, the plugins are a godsend, it makes life so much easier when dealing with special features.

Pros

I love that this has reminder features, I use slack to message myself for anything i need to have at hand. I also love that it helps keep everyone on the same page.
I love the price/value, ease of use, inherent organization structure, and interface. M still using the free version which is amazing when I think about how much I use the system.
I like how well Slack enhances the ability to communicate with teams onsite and offsite. The integrations are really useful and allow for a boost in productivity.

Cons

Cons: if you change you ip on a linux server it is a pain in the ass to get running again. But in the end i got it.
Pricey plugins, I also hate that the plugins aren't regulated meaning that a plugin can stop updating and I'm forced to either find a new one or brace myself of being hacked.
WordPress sites are vulnerable to hacking, attacks and spamming and often you only learn this once you've been attacked. More should be done for security.

Cons

Only thing which I struggle with is that I get lost in my channels sometimes. You can only go into one channel at a time.
Slack is a tool, and if a company fails to identify the ground rules, it can be useless. The organizations that dislike using slack often have not defined rules around using it.
It feels disorganized, repetitive, and obsolete. I do not think that this is going to be something we use in the longterm.

Slack

Easy collaboration platform for business

Reviewed a year ago

We really love Slack and whatever client we work with we suggest using Slack. I like the fact we can integrate it with our B&R tools and people get messages as they need

Pros

What I liked about this platform is that it readily integrates with a number of other tools I use such as wordpress, TFS and others

Cons

The plugin library is extendabe but I would like to see more examples. Also the authenication model is hard to work with, espessialy when using a web based clients to which multiple users log in. It will be nice to have an IRC protocol wrapper

Slack Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

As my work transitioned from Wordpress to Drupal for our website configuration, we used Slack to communicate with other departments and were able to help each other through the transition.

Pros

I liked the ability to choose which groups to follow and which conversations to be a part of, with many ways to personal your options.

Cons

I struggled to follow some of the conversations. Perhaps this was more due to the organization and writing of those in the group, but I found it generally difficult to find answers to my questions.

Slack

Slack has served to better define our communication

Reviewed 2 years ago

We recommend using slack to any business whose goal is to improve its management of employee directories, and web page tracking. Slack is essential to have proper survey management, and to be able to share files more effectively.

Pros

The Slack integrated chat tool allows us to share all kinds of files regardless of the format they may have. Slack is integrated into social media pages, so we can share the information of our work through them. We also liked to track our visitors.

Cons

The platform has demonstrated difficulties in maintaining its performance when working with online services for content management (CMS) as in the case of the Wordpress platform. Does not include good conference tools for audio and video.

Slack

Convenient Messaging System

Reviewed a year ago

There are other work spaces that can be joined - I'm in my own company's work space, but also one for WordPress developers, which has been great for getting insight into what others are working on while also allowing for questions to be answered and asked within that community.

Pros

Very easy to chat with others in the office without the distraction of personal or other professional contacts. Skype was too easily accessible for others, where Slack does a better job of weeding out the riff raff (no spam!).

Cons

With so many chat / communication options, it's difficult to get people to adopt a single one in a company. The free version is pretty acceptable for smaller businesses, but if you want to be able to take advantage of more seats and message history, you're going to have to upgrade.

Slack

Slack is a great communication tool for teamwork

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Slack is pretty easy to use even for beginner users. It works pretty well on both Android and IOS platforms. Is not just for messaging but for sharing links, files, archive conversations for future reference. You can create both private and public conversations. It can be integrated with other platforms too, like Wordpress and Google Drive.

Cons

Slack is not very affordable for everyone. Its pretty limited for free plans. Slack space can be filled really quickly, especially with a large team users.

Slack

Slack connects with everything! use the chat, make groups, share, a must!

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Slack connects with everything! use the chat, make groups, share, Slack is a must! I use it when I work remotely with my clients, they can view the story, share files, send alerts, have connections to everything, for example: Dropbox, Google calendar, trello, Ifttt, zapier, rss, wordpress, etc. You can use it on your phone or computer, just download the app and you're done.

Cons

On the other hand, I find that I like it so much that I get distracted by the application, I like to check it, I send emojis, I send photos I think it's a little addictive. LOL !

Slack

Slack - Instant Messaging, Chat, and Conferencing All Wrapped Up In One!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Slack helps our organization communicate and collaborate more efficiently and effectively and helps us do so in ONE tool. Rather than having to use multiple tools for chat, video conferencing, text, etc. Slack enables us to do all of those things in a single tool that is both dependable and easy to use.

Pros

Slack has become our 'go to tool' for internal communication, collaboration, and resource sharing at work. Whether conferencing or chatting with one employee or several, Slack enables us to quickly ask questions, share ideas, and post helpful resources with one another in a safe, secure environment. In Slack, all of our conversations and resources are archived and searchable, helping users reference important discussions that happened days, weeks, or even months ago. In addition, Slack features a very robust API, allowing integration with third party application like Wordpress, Salesforce, and email marketing platforms.

Cons

Slack has been incredibly industrious with their product roadmap, releasing new features at an aggressive pace. It would be very helpful if there were accompanying notifications, tutorials, and/or webinars that were available for users to help ease them into seeing the new changes. It can sometimes be a bit unnerving when changes occur that users are not aware of and this sometimes happens with Slack.

Slack

ALL IN ONE PLATFORM

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

there's a great deal of things I like about slack, beside the way that it is utilised for correspondence, it can be coordinated with loads of programming, for example, google drive, opsgenie, and even Wordpress. that is the best thing that I like about slack. we used to coordinate it with different applications so at whatever point we have to accomplish something there, we can take care of business with Slack other than that, I can make private channel which is adds security to all correspondence inside our organization.

Cons

File sharing needs a great deal of change. It is highly unlikely we can have a view for all documents transferred in a specific channel or gathering talk

Slack

Slack for communities and remote work

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have mixed love/hate for Slack. I've used it to interact with the global WordPress community since 2017 and it has proved indispensable in that regard. I started using it for work just over a month ago and the experience has been quite different from how I previously used slack to communicate with open source communities in a private space. The main thing we use slack for at work is to connect it...

Pros

Persistent storage of messages across platforms. Markdown formatting and emoji shortcuts. Integration with a large number of online services. The free version is good enough for most of my uses

Cons

Extremely resource heavy. My computer hangs at times when using Slack. I have to create an account and password for every community I join. Why Can't I have one password attached to one email address for all of Slack. Slack is not popular locally ( Zimbabwe ), so local software communities are mostly built on WhatsApp
