Pros: that we can build whatever we want with it and there are a ton of premium addons that build on to the core functionality

Cons: upgrading can be a challenge since sites are so uniquely built

Overall: It's hard to start with what's the best thing about ExpressionEngine (EE). Member management is definitely at the top, but the biggest thing for us is the ability to build whatever you want to build. EE is a blank slate and you decide what you want to build and how. That's great for developers that know the software. It can be intimidating for those that don't and are more use to a "plug and play" CMS. We've used EE on over 500 sites, from simple blogs, brochure sites, college websites to e-commerce sites to robust custom infrastructures. It never fails and the support is amazing.

Similar in function and quality to Wordpress

Pros: I had previous experience with Wordpress which helped a lot to get used to ExpressionEngine quickly. It has a similar interface. Publishing is instantaneous and easy to go back and fix if you made mistakes. I worked on a calendar at work and it kept it very neat and orderly. Ultimately very happy with it.

Cons: I know it had plenty of other functions that at other departments used it for (who were more focused on story publication), so I guess my biggest complaint is that I didn't how to use them more.

Pros: Functionality is great and ease of using once you learn can save a business a lot of time and frustration.

Cons: There's a learning curve, but it's a small one

Overall: Our website designer used this program and it's been a lifesaver for our organization. There is a learning curve, but it's easy to learn.

Pros: It is easy to navigate to the page you would like to edit, and is overall a very user-friendly platform.

Cons: I don't have experience actually building any of the pages, just editing/updating, so I can't speak to how simple it is to set up.
