the consensus seems to be that Slack is easily the superior product with a better user interface. Okta's CEO suggested (during a discussion of Slack), if I recall correctly, that companies are typically looking for the best in breed for this type of product - which means Slack. Unless the Teams product improves significantly

Funny how those things work. My engineering team has been using Slack for quite a while. We like it; simple, unobtrusive, does what its supposed to with minimal fuss.

Along comes management and puts the whole company on Teams. Best I can tell, it does everything Slack can do and possibly more. Unfortunately, its clumsy, always in the way, and ridiculously complicated. It also comes for free along with Office 365, so we're stuck with it.

Currently running both apps <sigh>
