Pros

I love the ease of use for me. I'm a freelance Creative Director so it lets me customize content for my different clients per space while keeping in all in one accessible location for me.
We use it weekly and it is really helpful for confidential files or files where we want to have some receipt they were downloaded by the user. It is especially helpful for legal documents.
The ability for people to deliver large amounts of material to me without having to create an account. The ability to collaborate with remoters on creative projects.

Pros

Overall it is a great software with a very helpful customer service, also their training videos are awesome and very helpful.
So far, very satisfied with it. Great for remote/distributed teams, good value for the money vs the mainstays like Dropbox and Box.
Egnyte does a great job for online secure document storage. With tight hierarchal permissions, it's a great option for remote companies who don't have local offices to secure sensitive documents.

Cons

It is the biggest pain to get and find. They fact that i have to go hunt it down is insane in a world where it should just be emailed to me.
It is difficult to do a search on files having been sent without scrolling down the page. They also used to send out alerts if they had a problem but this has now stopped.
Lost one file due to the expiration date. Learned to leave my clients a little wiggle room to retrieve.

Cons

Really the only thing I dislike about Egnyte is that there are no data sovereignty capabilities as far as I can tell. You can't specify where data is stored geographically.
Sharing files in real-time is almost impossible. Also, it Egnyte does experience crashing issues when there's a poor internet connection.
If you are using it to upload files, there could be a lag of half an hour before recipient can view file.
