We're users of MS Project here. Definitely definitely definitely
consider your options before settling with Project - it's been a
struggle... We're a busy eLearning consulting company with only 10-ish
employees, but frequently run into data integrity problems, "features"
breaking, lost hours, etc.

Maybe it's our setup - we certainly don't have the luxury of having
someone in IT dedicated to making sure it's running smoothly....

But, at the end of the day, it does the job (barely).

What features are you looking for? I've also used BaseCamp
(http://www.basecamphq.com/) with great success on a few projects, and
adore it immensely.

But, as always, ymmv.
