Pros

Using the free version currently and the free version is good enough for my management. I like the user interface, its very colourful and very easy to understand and navigate even for non-IT user.
It is a super customizable platform to assign tasks and track them so that all team members have a good workload. The online support is also very helpful.
It was a very good tool to use, highly user friendly, quite effective and very visually attractive. This tool is great for startups in my opinion and the price is fair for the features it has.

Pros

A great web solution that helps you make beautiful sheets without the hassles of excel.
The UI is what people first comment on when I invite them to our shared set of bases--either "it looks great" or "this is easy" or something like that.
I love the low price-point and the amazing customer service they have, by far one f the most powerful low-cost database/spreadsheet tool out there.

Cons

I did not use Asana to it's potential due to lack of branding and it not being top of mind as compared to some of its competitors. The tool is dull and makes a project look boring.
In using Asana at previous jobs there is also a decided lack of strategy and communication when rolling out updates compared to competitors which was maddening at my last position.
Any problems we have it with is more a lack of our own organization or keeping up with tasks than the software itself.

Cons

We had problems with the mobile app not working at times. This was frustrating for our teams in the field, especially since this was a big selling point for us.
The input fields to gantt view can be confusing at times. Also, filtering by projects due is also confusing if all team members do not synchronize their way of project management.
I also very much dislike the amount of e-mails my colleagues and I receive from AirTable, a lot of which are requesting that we upgrade (and pay for) their software.
