Overall Satisfaction with Atlassian JIRA

JIRA is used to track our issues, stories and epics. It's used through the whole organization to have a view on different projects. It's also used to track time of employees that is put on tasks to be done. Without JIRA, we would not be able to easily track issues on our products.
  • Can track issues on a product. It does it well and easily.
  • Can monitor progress in a user story.
  • Provide useful dashboard for current sprint.
  • Search for issues can be very long.
  • Views are not always perfect.
  • Burndown and such charts can be slow to render.
  • Easily track issues, improve clarity
  • Jira is not really a ROI
  • Each employee can easily know what he has to do.
I don't really use other project management software other than JIRA.
It's easy to use and it does its job properly. However, since it's not free, it's not a perfect score.
Can you have a free jira-like product? In a small startup, I think that JIRA can be overkill. It does work well; however maybe you should use a free issue tracking software. I guess that if Atlassian does not provide this product, then I am really asking myself if JIR would be my first choice.
