Better Content Type Hub Management
For large enterprise's where the number of content types around 100+ it becomes quite cumbersome to manage, especially when using the content type hub.
There is no way of viewing which columns are in use by which content type.
Summary screens about publishing status of content types or last published date.
Information about whether a content type has been changed since it was last published
Bulk operations such as add/remove column to multiple content types quickly.
Promotion of a site collection based content type to the hub.
Bulk operation to apply a content type to all libraries or libraries with specific criteria. Especially where those organisations use large file plans.
These are some of the pain points that I face, in Office 365 there are a few CSOM gaps making it difficult to code tools to support the management of the content type hub.

publishing is a big issue, gives a lot of errors without knowing what is really wrong
Waiting for the timer job to publish content types for hours is not a good solution. We need a way to publish in a timely manner.
Totally agree! Thanks for posting this. I have some ideas as well:
I also want to see the timerjob in SPO to have an idea when the content types are being pushed. At the moment this is totally unclear and very time consuming to keep checking.
Only push a selection of content types to certain site collections instead of all of them.
