      Why not try yourself?

      First design a WordPress website without such a plugin. Than do the same without it. If you have this done by different teams in your company, I’m sure this will result in a good insight in pros and cons.

      Please tell your findings here.

      Using a page builder plugin in WordPress has the advantage of a user-friendly interface, making website design accessible to individuals with limited technical expertise. However, a drawback is the potential performance impact, as some page builders may generate less optimized code, leading to slower website loading times.

      Page builder plugins in WordPress offer a user-friendly approach to website design, empowering developers with drag-and-drop functionality, saving time and effort. Pros include quick customization, especially for non-coders, and flexibility in design. However, drawbacks may include bloated code affecting site speed, limited customization for advanced users, and potential compatibility issues with other plugins. In WordPress development, page builders can expedite projects but may lead to less streamlined code. Developers must carefully choose a page builder, considering performance impact and long-term scalability to ensure a balanced approach to efficient and tailored WordPress website development.
