Recurring tasks and simple task delegation make it easy to manage weekly tasks/projects and stay up to date on who is accomplishing each task and whether it has been completed. I also love Asana's 'boards' project type. It is a "Trello-like" experience...

It's not the most intuitive, a user needs to explore the software a bit to get used to it. The categories on the homepage don't match the menu that you see on the other pages.

It is buggy and difficult to use at times. It does not lend its self to ease of use.
