Good for edge cases, but GitLab is better overall

Phabricator was chosen as the "standard" for my company's software development workflow before I started. The only redeeming value I can see in it is support for Mercurial and not being open core. That's it. I loathe using it and having to administer it and am thankful I've been provided with the opportunity to use GitLab for my own projects. I'm hopeful that we'll be able to switch more projects to GitLab over time because that seems to be significantly more fleshed out.

Pros
Phabricator is an open source product, not open core, so you're free to spin up an instance that has 100% of the available functionality. It has a broad set of tools, including some, like Herald, that are clever. Phacility is responsive to customer needs despite being such small company.

Cons
Phabricator is designed by developers for developers, and it shows. As someone who's gone from Ops to DevOps, nothing about it seems designed for someone like me. The names of the products are confusing and are probably supposed to be "funny." They aren't. Nothing about "Diffusion" screams "project repositories," for instance. The interface in general is not intuitive; I get frequent questions from beginners who can't figure out where to begin. Phabricator isn't distributed as packages. Instead, it's installed through Git repositories, which is more work than is needed. Our senior software engineers often complain that Arcanist is distributed this way as well. Phabricator's lead developer appears to have a negative view of system administrators; there are features that are locked out that I feel administrators should have access to. Finally, while Phabricator includes a variety of products, some of the products are significantly less developed than in competing products such as GitLab. Compare Harbormaster to GitLab CI, for instance. It's no contest. Phacility does warn users that some of these products may be incomplete, to be fair.
