Would you work for a company that uses Teams over Slack?

I couldn’t imagine working for a company that doesn’t use Slack, but I know there are a lot of companies out that that use team (since it’s ‘free’). Thoughts on slack vs teams?

Thoughts?

I wouldn’t pick a company based on this, but Slack is way better than Teams

Exactly. This is hardly a metric to know how the company is. Honestly if you use any product enough, you'll get used to it. Although slack is better, I hope you aren't making job decisions based on what tools companies use

We use Teams and it is behind big time. Even Skype for Business was better.

Having moved to a company that uses Teams, it sucks. Slack is far and away much better

I prefer Zoom over both Teams and Slack.

Well we used to use office messenger before that so it might just be the fact that its a step up. The only thing I don't like about teams is you can't delete all threads. You have to go 1 by 1 and hide them.

Choosing a firm basis this ain't my choice. Having used both, slack is way better

To choose a company based on something so minor would be silly. IMO. 

I prefer slack over teams but I wouldn’t not work for a company if they didn’t use slack 😂

Slack 100%. I know a lot of people here are saying they wouldn't judge a company based on which one they use. I differ. If a company is using teams it would make me question if they have money for other tools etc. Slack vs Teams may not be life changing but I don't want to work at a company that won't provide me with the tools I need to do my job

my thoughts exactly. I think the software that companies invest in for their employees says a lot about the company in terms of how they support getting their work done and meeting rev goals

for me, it's also a question if they use G Suite or Outlook, Mac or Windows, Slack or Teams. this might sound stupid but I'd want to work with a modern tech stack and where I actually enjoy using the tech they have. few companies understand this!

While I would never make a decision based on something like that, in my experience, companies that use slack seem to be a bit more forward thinking.

It really doesn't matter in the slightest. Slack is way better though. My company doesn't use either - everything is done in Google Chat. It hurts.
