Pros: My team uses NGinX for configuring our development servers and locations, using variables, rewriting URIs to redirect to the appropriate service based on hostname. NGinX makes this process light and easy. We develop multiple different sites and services. NGinX is lightweight and you can be up and running quickly. It does everything I need as a web server and I really have no complaints so far.

Cons: NGinX is really for high level server admins. I can be complex because all the configurations are text based files and if you do not understand what you are doing it will cause issues.

Overall: We benefit by using NGinX as our primary development web server that points traffic to the correct corresponding service base on hostname. This allows development to easily work on multiple projects with multiple languages and/or versions simultaneously.

I dunno, it just has that 'something'.

Pros: Simple configuration, lots of features, speed, and reverse proxying. Most important, it just 'feels better' than alternatives.

Cons: Support for meta-config could be better: when sharing templates among vhosts, the limitations of how you can use variables are a surprise.

Overall: Something about Nginx feels qualitatively 'better' than Apache. I know that's subjective, but that sort of thing matters when you have to manage a flotilla of Nginx instances in your daily work. The configuration files just make sense to me in a way that Apache config files never did. The config language is very expressive and lean. It's a versatile server; you can use it as an application proxy, a reverse caching proxy, a forward proxy, and of course a plain ol' web server.

(Disclaimer: I've only ever used the open source Nginx, but the commercial version has some very compelling features that I know I've wished I could use.)
