Pros

It is so easy to generate reports, do payroll and customer support is amazing. They spend all the time necessary to get any issue resolved or explain how to do something.
My overall experience with Quickbooks has been great. If I have any issues at all, I am able to contact support and they are wonderful with helping you solve any problem you run in to.
We love that it has so many features and options for add on services like payroll, connecting to your benefits programs, and the ability to link in financial accounts.

Pros

Very good experience, very happy with this - I think it was a good investment for the company.
Super easy to use and great IT support. We will definitely be continuing to use their performance review software following our free trial.
Great feature set, very responsive support team, and excellent APIs enable us to build highly customized solutions.

Cons

So, WHY is it that when I do a simple reconciliation, the software is full of glitches and poor UI/UE. I HATE this product because the monthly bank reconciliation takes 4 hours.
Their customer service is a labyrinth of disorganization where the right-hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Their lack of communication with the client is appalling too.
But the worst is when there is an issue with the software you go into Customer Service HELL.

Cons

So it makes me often check my weights (model 2) over the time line to see if there is no data missing.
Morningstar Direct made this available at no extra cost and, given the comparability in cost between the two softwares, it is difficult to justify spending more on a cloud option.
I understand the impetus for charging for the cloud option, but with a larger provider it would likely be provided at no additional cost.
