My company standardized on Slack a few years ago. I've had a love/hate relationship with it, especially in light of it really just being an IRC clone (it reminded me a lot of Gnome IRC that I used to use back in the early 2000s).

Until the pandemic hit I had never seen Teams. Then some of my kids' teachers started using it. It looks pretty organized, but it was hard to find some things (a little too much organization). But, in many ways, it looks more powerful than Slack, especially with the video conferencing. That's an area where I really despise Slack. The video streams on Slack get blurry under a light load and I've started experiencing freezes more frequently. Heck, WebEx (our company's choice of conferencing) does a significantly better job.
