Maintaining many environments for test is a bear. These guys make it so easy with their CI integration that you can have tests going in after a few hours.

Sauce Labs Cons

Brook Beam
Lead Software Test Automation Engineer at a tech vendor
The Jenkins Sauce OnDemand plugin could have more options available to tap into more of the custom capabilities Sauce Labs actually supports.

User account management needs an overhauls, allowing for user groups rather than just a hierarchy structure.
