We find K2 to be responsive to our support needs. When we have discovered issues/bugs, we get effective support and resolution, escalation occurs quickly, and code fixes are provided to repair the product.
Embrace codeless development. Developers, those people who live with semicolons, need to accept this aspect of a software architecture. Stitching people together with workflow in a graphical way can free them up to work on more in depth code that provides greater business value. The fact that the platform is 100% .net and can easily connect to any data/web service/custom API allows for rapid development of business process applications.
I like its flexibility and customizability.
Versions are locked in so when in an upgrade cycle, upgraded workstations won't work with the older version servers. This makes addressing production issues a little difficult, but it can be planned for. Also their deployment tools for SharePoint 2013 based solutions have a little more work to do. Moving solutions between SharePoint farms/environments needs to be thought out and sometimes issues need to be addressed manualy.
It's hard to think of anything. I'm pretty happy with the way K2 operates. If I had to be picky, I think I'd like to see some blogs/webinars on how new features work when they release them.
I think we could get more value out of the investment if our IT leadership had a clearer/stronger vision for business processes. K2 was brought in through the infrastructure team, however, the application development teams never really caught the vision for rapid application delivery and business processes. Things are starting to change a little, but still not from a strategic perspective.
