A great solution for a terrible problem

What do you like best?
I like the fact the community rose and kept this service-turned-software alive and going, and it remains in active development after the debacle of the shutdown of the Parse services. It provides with a wonderful alternative for Backend use, simplifying a lot of complex tasks.
What do you dislike?
Setup can be a bit fidgety, and the server is fairly opinionated in its way of doing things, though of course that's part of what makes it a delight to use, if your tastes match the server's.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Turn-key-ish mobile backend, push notifications, authentication. With the parse server you can hit the ground running pretty much.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Parse server is great, however, because of it's troubled past, it might make sense to check the landscape for some other OSS project, and start from scratch there, unless the Parse Server matches your needs uniquely.

Easy to set up

The server is easy to set up for the first time. The documentation does not cover all aspects of the sever though. For instance, I had problems setting up the "server.js" file. It took up to 3 days before I got it right. Logs are also had to find to discover reasons why the server could not be started.
