Mean Stack has several Pros and Cons.

Pros:

- MEAN Stack is comprised of technologies that are written in JavaScript. So a developer can learn JavaScript and can work on both front-end and back-end.

- MEAN Stack is very easy to learn as JavaScript is quite an easy language pick up and use.

- MEAN Stack is very stable because all the technologies in the stack have been around for quite a while and are being developed consistently.

- MEAN Stack has a large community of developers, so if you ever run into a problem you can ask a question and can get a response.

Cons:

- Since JavaScript is a dynamically typed language, it can lead to bugs in software if not handled carefully. Although there are languages like TypeScript which provide type safety with JavaScript and are transpiled into JavaScript many developers will by default use JavaScript.

- Many developers have found security bugs in the technologies of MEAN stack, although these have been fixed, it is still a concern from a security standpoint.

You can also compare the difference between mean stack and full-stack development on the Intellipaat blog.
