In our workforce, PPM is mandatory and required, but nobody likes using it. It's bulky, it's slow, and the UI is not intuitive. Many features are hidden behind screens that are hard to find without proper guidance or training. Recalling timesheets is a pain.

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

Several departments have tried using it more as a task management solution and it just doesn't hold up. Solutions like AtTask offer a much better enterprise level project management.
