Pros: We've been using the software with out clients since almost the inception of the software. Their support is great, and more affordable than most that are comparable amongst enterprise CMS providers.

As mainly a development shop, the flexibility of the different frameworks we can use (Spring MVC, Struts, OSGi, AngularJS) allow us to use cutting edge technologies along with their scalable architecture and tackle just about anything you could want.

Cons: Software still has some legacy functionality that needs refactored; the impact is very low but from time to time creeps up from a "want" to a "need".

Overall: Fast paced team development built around technologies that we're already using with mainstream clients to tackle enterprise problems.

Comments: Dot CMS does not give you a lot of flexibility as a web publisher. I have experience with many other platforms and this is the hardest to use, meaning it is not intuitive. It is also dated in terms of some of the plug ins.

Comments: Pro:
Very flexible and easy to extend. Allows you to build things the way your want. Powerful multi-tenant hosting for managing multiple websites. Separation of authoring and production servers with the ability to push publish between environments.

Con:
More of platform for building web and internet applications. So, some features require a little work to get implemented
