Pros
I knew nothing about the Nosql, until I started with Mongodb, what I like the most about mongdb is the ease of use and the excellent customer support.
It is much perfect when we are integrating it with JavaScript backend. I recommend using MongoDB for all the web developers as it provides great developer experience.
Speed and scalability are better than other databases like MySQL. It is most suitable for the non-relational database.
Cons
There are no functions available for Transaction. MongoDB's documentation is much confusing to the users.
It took me some time to get used to NoSQL development coming from a SQL background, but this shouldn't mean that the product is bad for others.
One wrong installation click can send you into hours of troubleshooting to discover that you did not install the software as a service (always running in the background).

Java developer on MongoDB.

Reviewed 22 days ago
Pros

MongoDB is for me the top database for microservices applications. It scales great and is easy to use. It has many integrations with popular programming languages. It is easy to configure it for heavy loads.

Cons

It is a NoSQL database by which it can be a certain entry threshold for beginners. Correctly selecting and setting up indexes can be a problem.

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

Reviewed 5 years ago
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

Interesting alternative for relational DBs

Reviewed 3 months ago

To be honest, I wasn't too convinced about non-relational databases. Before I encountered MongoDB in one of my jobs, I was working only with MySQL and PostgreSQL and treated MongoDB as a curiosity. I was sorely mistaken. It is fast, reliable, and intuitive. A lot of clear documentation and helpful customer support made learning easy. However, in the beginning, I felt a little lost about queries or...

Pros

Ease of use. Customer support and documentation. Speed and functionalities. Flexibility.

Cons

May be hard to maintain if the structure is created in the wrong way. Beginners may get lost in more complicated queries
