Overall Satisfaction with Miro
Miro is being used across the organization. It allows for collaboration in real-time for issues that pop up, design and development, and overall progress tracking. I use Miro every day for my own progress tracking and for my team's issue solving. We @ each other in the comments to help the progression of issues.
- Allow for documents to be uploaded directly to the board.
- Real-time updates for edits made.
- Lots of storage (haven't run out of space on any boards yet).
- Larger boards take time to load sometimes.
- The notifications section is still a bit clunky.
- Doesn't show a list of the changes since you last left, just highlights the frames.
- Improved productivity.
- Streamlined collaboration.
- Added resources for new hires to intuitively search through.
Miro has a REST API that I have not yet worked with but seems intuitive. They have also integrated well into Trello and Jira, both resources that I use fairly often. There is unlimited storage (in my experience) and no blockages in terms of how far from (0,0) data can reside.
Miro has been fairly easy to integrate into our daily workflow. Since every frame has its own link, it's easy to have each frame associated with a specific story or issue. However, its lack of integration with Outlook makes it tough to automate tasks. Using their REST API may solve this, however, so I'm cautious to give this question a low-ball value.
Miro has been the sole reason remote work for new hires has been so smooth. Since all the information a new hire can need can be put on one Miro board (documents, spreadsheets, org charts, links to other in use Miro boards, etc), new hires have a way better idea of how the company works and what the protocol is for work.

Would you buy Miro again?
Miro stacks up better than Zoom and Teams in terms of remote work collaboration only because whiteboarding done during meetings sticks after the meeting is over. Zoom and Teams allow for annotation but that doesn't stick after the meeting. I still use those two for meetings, however, not Miro.
Miro is well suited for engineers that are working in remote settings. You can whiteboard, @ other coworkers to continue the conversation, write text, and do all of it in a very aesthetically pleasing environment. There haven't been any storage limits in my experience, and it is usually quite fast. This can also work well in any environment that requires collaboration, especially in remote settings.
