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.
