Overall Satisfaction with Bitbucket

Bitbucket is good overall and meets our needs for hosting our Git repositories. It has been stable since we began using it more than a year ago, and the account flexibility has been useful for our different teams. The biggest issue we have had is the slow and unstable Windows client, which we stopped using after a couple days due to constant crashing. Also, the website navigation is not intuitive and we have had to write documentation just to remember where various links are located. It really could use cleaning up, as we are website developers and designers and even we have trouble with the navigation.
  • User account and team flexibility works very well
  • Stable
  • Integrates well with third party Git clients
  • Website navigation is confusing
  • SourcTree client is slow and crashes too often
We chose bitbucket because our IT budget is very low and we didn't see a reason to have to pay to use github
We use bitbucket with three small, separate teams that add up to about eight people total. I don't see a situation where it wouldn't be useful to use offsite storage of repositories. If the first party client is needed then I would look elsewhere, even though the client for github is also slow and unstable.
