Pros

Big Time Customer Service is always great to work with. Everyone I have worked with has always been very polite, professional, and quick to resolve issues.
BigTime is a great management tool that easily helps me track my time and resources for myself and my employees. It's reports give me a greater ability to forecast workload and revenue.
The customer service representatives are super knowledgeable, helpful and send articles from the Knowledge Base. For the price, I believe BigTime is a wonderful system that exceeds my expectations.

Pros

I love that you can create a client and have it automatically be added to the QBO customer list. Support staff is friendly, helpful and very responsive.
Easy to use, intuitive, top notch support for the occasional issue, which has been rare. Integration with QuickBooks is pretty well seamless, makes time keeping and billing very easy.
Overall it has been pretty good, there are a lot of useful features and is mostly much faster than PCLaw.

Cons

It stopped syncing with QuickBooks without lots of re-booting of computers and time wasted. Customer service was seriously lacking when we stopped using it.
There are a couple of features that are missing pertaining specifically to my company.
Migration is always a headache no matter what system you are moving too.

Cons

I think the fact that I have to pay for Quickbook Online, which I repeat I hate, in order to use LeanLaw is an additional cost that I do not feel like I should have to pay.
I have problems when implementing specific time entries.
But that's as much a QB problem as LL. Not a full-blown practice manager, but I knew that going in.
