Anyone who prefers Slack/Teams to in person communication is a psychopath.

I can think of different use cases for both. In general I prefer in-person interactions but CD1 has pointed out a few good exceptions. I’d also add that Slack provides a way to track previous conversations that would require extensive note taking in person, so that can be an additional benefit.

I’m ok with being a psychopath. Some meetings don’t need to happen and in person, you have no choice but to pay attention. Also, in my opinion, slack saves from having meetings or long drawn out email chains. But, I do prefer a conference call over videoconference. Time to bring those back

I really enjoy Slack because no one can deny anything. The written record is proof when you don’t follow through. Don’t like accountability? Too bad.

I love in-person communication. With my wife, whom I eat lunch with every day because we both work from home. For everything else, Slack is just fine.

likefunnysmart

Have you ever had someone who thought they told you something they never did in a meeting you weren't even in? Imagine going through that constantly. WFH and forcing people to provide written records of things has been a godsend

It's not the worst thing I've been called.

I agree. And while I don’t think your post is advocating for returning to office or anything I just want to point out that non face to face interactions via slack were the norm in-office pre-pandemic. So I’d rather work from home and slack than work in the office and slack.

eh. I prefer slack and my home-office sweatshop to our old office-sweatshop any day. I at least get to see my wife and kids while working until midnight now.

But meeting in person it takes much longer to commute to, schedule/find a room for, and then suffer through your boring ass small talk. Your magical presence and extroverted needs don't impress me or make my work any better.

Depends on who it is I’d be talking to. 🤣

I don’t prefer zoom meetings lol but I also feel like I need to be in an office all the time as most of these meetings could be emails.

I just don’t like people I work with.

I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized.
