I only play freerolls
so can only really comment about those.
PartyPoker was the first site I joined, way back. Then they had a reasonable number of freerolls that were at times I liked to play and where you got cash if you reached ITM. Now they give tickets which I do not like. If I grind away for 3 or 4 hours only to find my reward is to grind for another 3 or 4 before I actually get any cash (assuming I have enough luck), I am more than a little disappointed.
A lot of other sites do this too so it is not just PP.
I also preferred the old software to the new one. I find the sudden pop-ups for their 'achievements' annoying. I know I just won a hand with 77. I just bleeping well played it!
I don't need a silly screen to tell me.
They also used to deduct from your bankroll if you didn't play there for a while, although I'm not sure if they still do that.
Maybe other members will have a more positive view.
