    Pros

    Comfortable accommodations and benefits, useful product, smart coworkers (while they last)

Product is rapidly becoming unreliable and customer good-will being burned. Slack's early success was via taking the time to do things properly, now there is not even time to do things half-assed. It really shows when you use the product or try to have meaningful discussions with severely burned-out teammates.
