    I have been a Workamajig user for 5 months and a Project Manager/Traffic Manager for an agency for 8+ years. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this product for ANY creative agency. You fail to mention that Workamajig is Flash based which is outdated and slow. It was built from a financial POV not a creative management POV. Poor customer service/support. Nothing is automated, no notifications of approaching due dates (green yellow red lights are a joke), makes the assumption that creatives will time manage themselves (which we know doesn’t happen), multi views + multi windows = mass confusion, many different ways to do something but also conflict with each other. It is not a flexible tool for the very fluid, fast-paced agency environment. Probably was cool 25 years ago. Needs to be put the pasture. They say a HTML 5 version is coming but they have one very small piece to a large puzzle done. Doubt it will be available any time soon if ever. Either way, the UX/UI of this product is one of the worst I’ve seen. You’ve either never used it and/or grossly misrepresented this product.

    John Dunbar is completely correct. Workamajig is a joke. Worst software I have ever used. NOTHING is intuitive. Training is non-existent, no training videos, no YouTube videos nothing.

    Accountants may love it, everyone else will HATE it. Workamajig does not work for you… you work for it. I can do a job faster than it can be entered in the Workamajig system… that’s ridiculous. A time clock that takes up 1/4 of the screen while half a dozen other windows clutter up the screen. This thing looks and feels like it was designed in the 80’s.

    And once again, John Dunbar is completely correct that the writer of this article has NEVER used this product to get any real work done. Whoever sold this piece of crap to our agency is the best salesman in the world.
