OK for simple projects

We've been diehard fans for the 3 years we've been using it, and it does a lot of things really well. We've gotten to the point where the shortcomings have really started to cramp our style, though, and it's time to move on..

Great tool for managing remote teams & freelancers

My previous experience with project management solutions is admittedly limited, having only worked with Asana and a combo of Excel meets GCal. We've been using Jira for a couple weeks now and I'm really happy with it.

Alexi Calvo @alexitalks, 500 Startups Venture Capital Business Development Manager (San Francisco/Mountain View)3rd of March 23:06

Not a good project management tool - errors in interface

Support team does not help with errors in interface. It took 2 days to work out the issues. Not easy to use.

Great for Agile dev teams

We moved from Pivotal Tracker to JIRA about a year ago. To be fair, Pivotal Tracker fully met our expectations as a "one size fits all" tool for our product team, and made our collaboration and project tracking overall enjoyable.
