  2. MongoDB’s performance rapidly degrades with increasing users
  3. MongoDB is significantly susceptible to data loss under failure
  4. MongoDB requires a third-party cache to help it perform
  5. When deployed in multiple geographies, MongoDB can’t perform all writes locally
  6. MongoDB lacks a mobile solution
  7. MongoDB is time-consuming to manage and maintain
