I've got a little over 20 years in the industry.

At first I was hot headed and spoke my mind more; now I sit back and weigh the options or opinions.

Currently we are in a debate of which project management tools to use.
*We have option A, bundled with other apps that's already paid for. it's not the greatest yet it is being upgraded later in Q3.
*Option B, free tier doesn't work for us, paid version has some nice features, but we are in a tight budget this year. Second, B has limited layouts.
*Option C, is only paid for. looks nice, integrates into other apps like Slack or Teams, but might be too much overhead to manage
*Option D through what ever, same sort of things.

Coming from a single developer standpoint, it's all too much overhead, and you spend too much time everyday updating the stupid things. But now I'm on a Team of two others, and I understand more communications between us and what our own projects are. Since we will rarely ever work on the same project at the same time, my vote is to use something more of a developer log; just something we can share and organize notes in and day to day tasks.

But others are pushing for kanban boards with statistics for job completion time. I'm against this, because we are a support team for a small community college so we take care of a lot of different things over the week, it's hard to put down a time or completion estimate were we could have an hour or 40 to work on a given project during the week.

I'm keeping the last part to myself for the time being since I still want to be considered a team player. Management will have to figure out the rest the hard way
