As a non native English speaker, I must say "hey guys" never sounded ok. In my local language we use different terma but mostly it's something very similar to "hey team", not just in IT, word team in this context is closer to "friends".

But fireman, freshman,... that's very difficult in my language and I guess in many more. We dont use "man" extension, but we have gender variants. Sorry, my English is really bad for grammar terms so can't explain it properly but we can use fireHE and fireSHE where he/she varies depending on the gender.
