Pros

Many features.
I like to use the reporting PRD, I think that it is the best.
I use Spoon/Kettle that is a ETL tool to process data.

Cons

Many bugs. Maybe is because of Community Edition.
We have many difficult to install in cloud.
The layout of some report that run in developing, don't run in production.
