Just started my second in house job, fully remote and work from home. Got my computer set up and was horrified to find new company uses Skype and WebEx instead of Teams. What in the fresh hell is this? These programs are trash.

WebEx can’t compete with Teams or Zoom when everyone is logging on from home with their webcams. But if you’re with a group of people calling in with the appropriate hardware from a conference room, WebEx shines. Its main party trick (again, with the appropriate hardware) is identifying the person in the group speaking and focusing a camera on that person.

The ease of teams’ groups and adding people to calls wins me over. We use the whole 365 suite so i asp love seamlessness with share point and outlook. I despise when I have to join a external party’s scheduled call and deal with webex. Joining is always a hassle for me, download a new app for your call!? Annoying.

Sometimes the ease of creating teams groups is more of a curse than a gift. I have been thrown into so many groups that my channels become very hard to manage and keep track of notifications.

I had the exact opposite experience starting this week. Went from WebEx to Teams and Slack. I’ve never known life outside of WebEx and can never go back haha

What’s better about teams or slack

Well with Slack I can respond to messages with party parrot (a simple cartoon parrot dancing) and that just brings a smile to my face each time.

For real though, slack connects with a lot of other apps and IT can open and close tickets within Slack. I am still learning Teams.
