If you'll ever need to work on high-traffic editorial websites, WordPress would probably be your best friend.

Maybe the easy option, but not the best option. Sometimes the work to optimize a wordpress site with multiple plugins is building a custom site with exact requirements.

I have working migrating ecommerces (with revenues of million euros) from wp (woocommerce) to custom code and the change is radical in performance, features and future developments. A lot of work, yes, but without comparison.

Regards!

I agree with you, that's much better of course but not always affordable for many business. Please consider that WordPress powers 40.0% of all websites on the internet and takes up to the 64% of CMS market. So, wether you want it or not, being in the web dev industry means also dealing with WordPress. (kinsta.com/wordpress-market-share/)

Take care.
