Pros

Overall experience has been good. Very happy for the product and how it helps us stay organized with the tickets we have coming in.
I love that its very user friendly to use ad easy to manage tasks. I love the interface make it easy to get tickets handled and provide the best customer service for my job.
We ended up switching to a free service which better fit our needs. All in all it was a pleasant experience and we used it for 3 years to manage the chat on our site.

Pros

It is very reliable, bugs free, has no performance issues an with a very good and friendly UI.
I really like the interface of the website and the depth of functionalty to assist running a service desk is really great. Superior software for the price.
Trouble-tickets are great, the queues are all very versatile and easy to manage. We have automated alerts, calls, and client-submitted tickets and screenshots all populating to an active queue.

Cons

Tremendously disappointing for a company that sells ticketing software to have such a poor interaction when it comes to using it.
Non-Existent & TERRIBLE Customer Service. You are just a number to them.
If you ever need support from Zendesk then it is horrible.

Cons

The sales people don't know their product and it doesn't have a lot of features. The sales people should have a PPO against them as all they do is harass.
Very convoluted and customer support is terrible.
It can be confusing to learn the system, since there is so much there.
