Yes: one of the problems is that some clients do not support disco or have 
problems with XMPP.

I only tested gpl ones (on Linux and some on Windows).
o Psi: does work, but don't support x:data forms (so you can't use the admin 
interface with it and you can't search in the vCard-jud), MUC, and xml:lang 
(if you need these). (though x:data and MUC support are planned for the next 
release and voice/video chat maybe too)
o Tkabber is maybe not a good user interface for the people in your company 
although it runs very will with ejabberd (as it's also developed by Aleksey 
like ejabberd ;-) )
o Gaim will also work I guess, but it do not support much Jabber things (like 
o look on the client list of Jabber.org which also lists commercial clients
