    Pros: 

    Some of the best quality content, neatly structured, soothing to eye, and amazing branding

    Cons: 

    I love everything about Medium, including the pace and direction of its growth

    Content serves for education, decision, and delight and Medium lives up to this one hundred percent. I love the findability, personalization, engagement opportunities, branding flexibility, and the brilliant "shout from the terrace" feeling when I write and read content.

    Pros: 

    Beautiful branding, high-quality engineering, innovative product design

    Cons: 

    Navel-gazing content, echo chamber effect, frequent pivots

    I've loved Medium since the beginning, and stuck with them through multiple strategic shifts. Personally, I'm disappointed that the 'platform for media companies' model didn't take off. I would've loved seeing more publishers like The Awl and their ilk producing world-class content, supported by the technical prowess of Medium. But alas, that didn't pan out. Still, I'm happy to subscribe and see my money going toward creators.

    Pros: 

    Creation Tools

    Cons: 

    Content

    Publishing platform is beautiful, easy to use, and free. Easily the best such platform out there.

    However the content is very weak and the curation is even worse. The form of writing needed to succeed on Medium os very poor writing and can be stressful to read. Platform rewards writing every day rather than substance in an article so baseless content is promoted.

  • Steve DimmickCo-Founder, doopoll
    Pros: 

    Clean, simple, powerful. Everything we want doopoll to be.

    Cons: 

    Not really. I love it!

    Would be great if Medium could auto suggest stock imagery based on the content you're writing.

  • Renzze MistalDigital Strategist & Tech enthusiast
    Pros: 

    Feels cleaner, especially the homepage where I check interesting articles each day. Also like the clap feature.

    Cons: 

    None for now

    Overall, still feels the same Medium I've liked since the beginning.

  • Nicolas NemniSoftware Product Manager
    Pros: 

    Great UI and UX for readers

    Cons: 

    Poor UI, UX and monetization for writers

    Medium is a great way to publish stories, but not at all a monetization platform for content.

    Pros: 

    A perfect blogging platform

    Cons: 

    None to mention

    A great medium to reach out larger audiences.

  • Adham BenhawySoftware Developer
    Pros: 

    Clean UI, great content, wide audience

    Cons: 

    Hardly any

    It's a great hub full of popular publications and freelance writers sharing their experiences, stories, and skills.
