Great for "Big" Projects

It did what it said but it did get a little discombobulated when trying to figure out all the uses.

Pros

What impressed me the most was the fact that it helped me manage the start and end date of a few projects I had going.

Cons

Unfortunately the software is pricey for smaller companies. Although it did help manage our projects and helping in getting it done by the proposed date, I don't know if it is worth it for a small company like our with 30ish regular employees.

The Software we all love to hate

Pros

Project is hands down the most widely used and accepted PM software out there, and has the broadest feature set almost to a fault.

Cons

Overly complex for novices to use. Too many features and options make it daunting. It needs a "beginner" mode that helps simplify and ease users into it.

Microsoft Project is a Solid Scheduling Software Accepted by Most Clients

Pros

- The baseline feature for scheduling is a great tool for tracking the tender schedule against the actual schedule
- Tasks are easy to insert and move around while creating simple dependencies and links
- The printable schedule is very presentable and looks highly professional
- Clients/Owners sometimes only accept the schedule in certain formats and Microsoft Project is likely one of them

Cons

- Not the easiest to collaborate with others on, there is cloud-based software which does this better.

Very powerful tool but has a steep learning curve

Pros

Very powerful tool with very extensive reporting and analytics modules. It gives you the ability to customize the report and manage resources.

Cons

Its not the most straightforward tool and it takes good training before you take its advantage to the fullest. Plus, it doesn’t integrate well with other PM tools.
