Pros: - Builds are FAST. The bare-bones Linux container used has plenty of power and our builds are completing 2-3x or more faster than TravisCI, JenkinsCI, and equivalents.

- Building in 'Secrets' (config files, SSH keys, environment variables etc) is straightforward and really powerful

- UI is simple and intuitive

- Customer Support has got to the best I have encountered with a cloud provider of any kind. Seriously, we have seen 2 hour response times on a basic support plan, including custom gists being written for us for specific use cases turned around in that time. I am so impressed at the speed and quality of support and I cannot imagine competitors are even close in this regard.

Cons: - Docker image caching on a dedicated disk would speed up our Docker builds substantially, but other than that I have no complaints or suggestions.

Overall: If you are picking a CI tool, pick Semaphore. If you are considering moving from an existing CI tool, or even if you aren't, strongly consider Semaphore. Our experience has been nothing but positive, and the support alone sets it apart from the pack.

Pros: Semaphore is very easy to integrate, offers exactly the UI feedback I want, and shows what's going on in a remarkably simple way. It's clear they spend a lot of hours working on making sure the product is both high quality and easy to use. One of the best parts is how little I need to intervene, which is exactly the mark of a well-run CI product.

Cons: I have little to no complaints. Any issue I've had I've never had more than once - if one user finds a problem they fix it for all users very quickly.

Overall: We use Semaphore for our CI / CD pipeline. It allows us to ensure everyone is contributing code quickly and with the confidence that things aren't breaking.

Great CI/CD tool

Pros: - Simple and very quick to set up. We had our first deployments working to stage and production environments within a couple of hours.

- Easy to use. We have over 70 projects in Semaphore which are deployed to our staging and production environments.

- Very flexible configurations. We use it to deploy to AWS Lambdas, AWS Ops Works, and Serverless SPAs to S3.

- Helpful support team. They are knowledgable about the product, and offered extra capacity free of charge when we were setting up all our projects.

Cons: - Limited implementation of deployment pipelines.

- The Project UI can sometimes be confusing to see what has been deployed to each environment.

Overall: Semaphore are a great company to work with. Always responsive and helpful.

Pros: Semaphore is a very nice CI service that has helped my team over the years. As a long time user, I can say that Semaphore has made my life a lot easier by providing effortless integration, a user friendly UI, and awesome customer support.

Cons: There was a time when my team considered removing our semaphore integration because it can be costly for multiple projects.

Overall: Semaphore is my favorite CI service. I have also integrated it with my personal projects because it's really easy to use.

Pros: We tried a few different CI services and Semaphore was by far the easiest to setup. When the tests worked in development, they worked on Semaphore. With other services this was not always the case.

Another great feature is that you can spread out your testing suite over a few different servers that carry out the test suite in parallel, saving time.

Wonderful is also the auto-deploy feature that deploys green builds to AWS.

Cons: When choosing a lot of parallel boxes to run your tests it can get quiet costly.

Overall: With Semaphore you can make continuous deployment a reality.

Pros: Semaphore is easy to set up and flexible. Setting up CI/CD pipeline is simple to set up and works well.

Cons: No incremental pricing options. On the yearly subscription plan it would be nice to have the option to pay for more servers for one month without having to bump up to the next subscription level.

Overall: We moved onto Semaphore over a year ago and have been happy with the service. Customer service has been responsive and we have seen an effort to improve the service as a whole.
