Is your business an enterprise level business that has more than a half dozen different content types? If so, then you might want to use a dedicated CMS rather than Movable Type. Movable Type is best used on small / medium sized businesses and is not the best solution for a full-fledged CMS. If you're using your content for something other than just displaying a website, then it's probably not for you. Movable Type works great for news/blogging sites. In fact, Daring Fireball, one of the most popular Apple-centric blogs is using Movable Type as its publishing platform.

Great for team use where there are multiple editors and writers fixing and editing each other's works. It's easy to track who last made the latest edits. Stellar support team and system. I've found that Moveable Type's support system is generally more responsive and helpful than WordPress.

There is little to no community around the application and what does exist is out of date. Does not work well with our IBM applications as well as you would expect, which seems a common issue with IBM products.

Versions of movable type which didn't allow pages to be constructed were difficult to create continuity in design and easily editable pages for our editors. The installation process could be simplified to make it easier for those new to a CMS to install. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

Movable Type can be compared to WordPress. It's easy to use, and I would say Movable Type is actually more user-friendly.
