Pros

The ease of use and functionality is great and it makes it easy to track where your reports are at and when it has been approved.
It's a nice incentive to encourage cost savings for the company and really nice for employees if you aren't too particular about your lodgings.
I really enjoy expensify and everything it encapsulates. It's easy, and quite frankly, effective and I recommend to everyone.

Pros

I thought it was going to be great when I saw that it functioned with Etsy. And I loved that it is free.
It's a great software and works well for my basic use case as a solopreneur. The payments feature is also nice and the reporting is great.
This is a user friendly software that I have been using for years. It makes my invoicing very easy and has been great in tracking my finances.

Cons

Our company have multiple entities in the US and in EU and expensify does not support this, the integration with xero is a mess i don't understand how does it work...My overall experience is bad.
Criminal billing practices. I barely used the software and they are charging me for a year subscription and won't let me cancel.
They violate their own privacy policy by sending out non-product related information to their customer base. This violates the agreement that they make you sign.

Cons

I am not able to write off a partly paid bill as bad debt if all attempts to reclaim the payment from my clients fail. Sometimes, people pay about 70% and fail to pay for the rest.
It can be glitchy at times. I had problems with my transactions imported from my connected bank account, and then when I tried to remove the account and re-connect it, I received error messages.
Then, January of 2021, Paypal import was abandoned. Without those 2 features, the software is essentially useless since it creates extra work each month.
