Drupal has problem with it's Usability. Drupal is not very much user-friendly platform and it has a high learning curve. Platforms like WordPress and Joomla are easier to utilize, Though they do not provide the power and options that Drupal does. The good news though is that the new release of Drupal 7 is addressing some of the usability concerns and should be an easier adaptation for newer administrators.

It has problem with backwards compatibility. Drupal is a relatively new system and is not backwards mixable with another software so if you have another content, systems and programs in place that you have become accustomed to then Drupal might not be the system for you.

It has some problem with it's Performance. In terms of loading and scalability Drupal is one stroke behind that of WordPress. The slow loading is easy. The reason is breadth of tools and abilities. If you have a slower computer, or are easy a microwave generation kid and require things to work quickly then consider a zippier platform. Advanced users have however found ways around its problematic performance indicators, but with the big learning curve this takes a significant amount of time.
