Pros: It's incredibly FAST, no matter how many data you need to handle. Its implementation allows you to model objects as you wish and change them when you want, as it doesn't have a rigid schema

Cons: It requires some time to get used to this different kind of DB. It doesn't handle joins, so you will have to handle objects connections differently to what you're used to.

Pros: The important I love about mongodb is the time required to shape an idea into reality, it's very quick compared to other solutions. The performance are good as well, making it a good choice for big data use cases.

As a non-sql database, it is super powerful and easy to use.

Pros: The database could handle large dataset and stored as json. The database is very similar to other traditional database making it easier to learn, however has very modern query designs, can be integrated for realtime applications. And most of all it is open source.

Cons: The database running as service takes lots of system memory. The database is in early stage of development so, the database is not efficient than the other stable ones.

Overall: Easier NoSQL database

Pros: When I need to store data that isn't relational, Mongo is where I turn. It makes my life so much easier, and I can do all the things I want and don't have to worry about conforming to a SQL db.

Overall: I can store data that doesn't have to conform to a SQL database and that is huge for me. I can also store data horizontally and not vertically.

easy to learn and can use it anywhere.

Pros: It is easy to setup and use it. The query and other commands are easy to use. The Java API is also good enough to handle daily work.

Cons: Sometime I feel the performance is not so good, especially when the data amount is high. A query will take a long time if you could not index the data properly.

Pros: MongoDb is an excellent document-oriented database. It removes certain limitations associated with relational databases. In overall, it's easy to use, cloud costs are accessible.

Cons: There are so many things to make manually about performance. Database's size is so big in comparisson with a relational database.

Mongo allows you to take off easily, but makes it harder to do more advanced analysis.

Pros: -Easy Setup
-Getting simple data in/out is painless & straightforward
-Basic analytics are easy, as is managing multi-server clusters

Cons: -Working with complex data is a difficult.
-Many original features or design choices were incorrect and slow to be corrected. For example, timezone support is minimal and days/dates/months use a custom numbering rather than ISO. Mongo is only now adding ISO versions of aggregation commands

Pros: I used mongodb shortly in one of my products and we found it very easy to use due to the way it stores data. We stored user session data in mongodb. We didn't have to worry about the scale, staleness of data and caching as mongodb provides in house support for all of these.I would recommend it for a session management kind of use case that it served for us

Pros: UI is intuitive.
Implementation is a breeze.
Instructions on installing software is straightforward.
Pricing is great.
Their monitoring and backup tools are great and resourceful.

Cons: The only draw back was that we weren't able to use their MongoDB cluster in production (we were stuck on Python 2.6 for the time being)

Overall: Managed MongoDB solution (instead of running our own backups, monitoring and replicaset)

Pros: I really like the document store idea.

The javascript integration is really good and the built-in security features and ecosystems is great.

I like how quick u can go from idea to a working model

Cons: Sometimes it feels inflexible when compared to traditional RDBMS.

Also, i found the security documentation lacking initially although this is much better today.

You cannot be as verbose with your queries by any means and related data feels clunky.

Overall: Storing app data in the cloud on on mobile.

client-side storage with syn ability to serverside is really good, and minimongo in the browser is really nice to work with

Pros: Reliability has been fantastic. We had network problems and replication managed to continue to work until the outage was complete.

Cons: Support has been mostly positive, although giving reasons behind advice would be better than just replicating what's said on their website.

Pros: Siple and powerful works great out of the box without particular configuration. It's very well documented. Sharding and replica are advanced functionalities that makes this product very professional and useful for big applications.

Cons: It lacks of a sync protocol that allows the offline use of an instance and the auto update when the connection will be available again.

Overall: Great flexibility in database structure, main goal of a nosql database.

Pros: Store metadata - MongoDB is best to use when we have to deal with a huge amount of metadata.
Scalability - MongoDB does scale well in comparison to other document specific databases.
Data handling - It manages data in documents.

Cons: It's a bit hard to learn and code using MongoDB.
No specific UI for management of a database.

Overall: I am a student. I have been using MongoDB in my academic projects and in my internship projects as well. I am pursuing my masters in software engineering and we use MongoDB entirely for every project that we do. In my internship at Ingram Micro Ltd. I did one project where the backend was on MongoDB.

Pros: It is Universal and is compatible with many different applications.

Cons: Not sure of what kind of storage space that it will require or consume.

Overall: This is a very suitable program for our organization.We are currently a medium sized construction company but the program is scaleable and very applicable to many different sizes,scenarios and situations.
