Con Bad post editor
It is a WYSIWYG html editor, and it would be a bit better if it used <p> tags. Instead it uses divs and brs everywhere, which leads to inconsistent or just crappy typography and spacing.
Con Limited authorization system
Sadly the authorization system is fairly limited. Co authors can post and publish, without you getting a chance to pre-check their posts as an admin. e.g. you can't give them "create" and not give them "publish" permissions. They can only edit their own posts however.
Con Can be very slow
Loading times can be huge - results may vary on your use of template, but even a fairly lightweight template can load quite slow.
Con Not fully HTML4 or 5 compliant
And impossible to get it perfectly accepted by the W3C verifier no matter how much you tinker.
