What I like best about core is how I can always count on it to track my buys efficiently.

It is clunky to use for planning projects. I would use excel to plan my projects first before adding to Primavera. So I found Primavera didn't help me save time as I would expect a project management tool to do.

It is buggy and difficult to use at times. It does not lend its self to ease of use.
