In developing a new PM department within a small Pharma company a colleague and I are trying to determine the best PM software/program to utilize. For reference we are steering away from MS Project and currently looking into Smartsheets. Does anyone have any other recommendations for a program they found useful? We want to have a dashboard that collates information from cross functional teams but, that can simultaneously be utilized for the individual teams. Tracking milestones, risks,budget...

I used smart sheets at a startup CRO, not a fan.
Salesforce an option?

In the past, I have used Smartsheets for timelines (quick, easy adoption across functions, while allowing for uploads of MS Project templates from CROs/vendors), Microsoft SharePoint for dashboards by project, with Box as the folder structure for collaborative document editing. That said, with the updates made to MS offerings, automations and integrations could shift working documents away from Box. I have used Salesforce for controlled documents and SOPs in the past, but this required significant time from QA to customize and manage glitches.

Manager gives me hard to solve, complex problems like getting a multi stakeholder project organized. This is not my primary job but the chaos was making progress impossible. I create the solution diagrams, drew up project plan, drove discussions to arrive at tech solutions (the team was in analysis paralysis mode) to land a solution with a hard deadline. When the structures are in place, mgr takes it away from me saying this is not my day job - twice, leaving me angry & confused. Thoughts?
