Overall Satisfaction with Wrike
We use Wrike to better visualize the components of projects we are planning for upcoming quarters as well as a project backlog for the upcoming year. We are better able to break things down into tasks and see how things are progressing while not having to deal with the additional complexity of something like Jira. The Gantt charts are tremendous for understanding lead-up to events or time-bound initiatives as well.
- Tasks, Projects and Folders can live in multiple locations, allowing for centralized collaboration but customizable employee workspaces.
- Progress tracking is simple to view.
- Inviting others to join to collaborate or contribute is ease.
- I don't love the home screen where you jump into workspaces.
- I don't love that it doesn't default to all visualizations of a project anymore. You have to choose to add a Gantt chart view or a table view.
- Getting a workflow right with the folder, project, and task nesting takes some getting used to.
- Everything can live in multiple places.
- Gantt Charts.
- Simple to use.
- The visibility into longer term, multi faceted projects prevents oversight.
- Centralized collaboration and communication eliminates doing the same work twice.
- Costs are really reasonable.

Would you buy Wrike again?
Wrike is great for events and other time-bound projects. Go to market launches are particularly well supported as well. The value of Wrike is compounded if more people from your team are using it to work on projects. If you are the only one, it really turns into just a task manager. A good task manager, but not as valuable.
