Its been fairly good, for my line of work I have to create lots of user guides, and OneNote simplified a lot that task.
Also, in meetings i take lots of notes and I can easily organize them.
I liked how taking notes with pictures, graphics and more has become a lot more easier since I started using OneNote, it has simplified a lot of my work when dealing with creating usage guides and such.
I havent been able to find a easy way to share data to another coworker. It would be awesome if it where possible that several people could edit at the same time.

I use onenote for business meetings for note taking, tracking takeaways and sharing them with the whole team. We all have access to the same notes, same takeaways and can all add to the meeting notes. I also like to use it for keeping track of information I might come across that I want to follow up on at some point, putting my ideas down so I don't forget them. Clipping articles/webpages so I can refer back to it. Create to-do lists.
If you are working in the Microsoft eco system OneNote is a must. Taking notes and keeping track of information is simple since it is tied into every Office/O365 application; Sharepoint, Word, Outlook even when browsing the web. Can be used for note taking during business meetings, training/school, planning vacations, shopping list. Uses are limit less. Best of all you can do it from what ever device you have with you and your notes will be available to you everywhere.
Onenote is such a powerful tool that it can be overwhelming to get a grasp on all that it can do and how to best use it for your situation.

All in all, I've had a positive experience with OneNote. It allows me a place to store work-related notes to keep different aspects of my work/life balance in check. The overall functionality from a powerhouse like Microsoft also means that it is a well-built piece of software that will be supported for years to come.
OneNote does a great job providing a cloud-based notebook for tracking projects, keeping notes on meetings, or providing an overall one-stop shop for data that may be needed on a moment's notice. As a component within the Microsoft ecosystem, it also gives a plethora of benefits when using with other Office products, such as OneDrive. Has a fair amount of customization that can be utilized to tailor the product to your purpose.
I always wish that note-taking apps that I use could have a less flashy, more subdued interface that could be kept open in the background. I find that my best experiences with note-taking apps occur when it is out-of-sight, out-of-mind until I need it to be. At that point, I need to be able to click once or twice to start typing. OneNote isn't quite at that point (at least, not in my current experience), but that's such a minor con to worry about.

I would give this a 3/5 star but considering how well-known and popular it is, then I can't give it more than a 2 star. It's ok.
Note this is the windows Microsoft Windows 10 version which is not the same as the Office 365 Onenote 2016 ... let alone others.
MS Whiteboard has issues but is much better overall.
Pros: Wide range of functionality. You can convert to different file types and insert files into it rather easily. It has great cloud support and is overall easy to access.
There is great support for onenote on the web, but at least 90% of the searches I've done to troubleshoot an issue or functionality apply to one type of Onenote and not another... for some reason. I've spent many hours troubleshooting options that don't exist for one type or another. Example:
The ink-to-math is not present in this version. The ink-to-draw is not present in the office 365 version. Why?
There is a view option of fitting what's been drawn to the page width which will also show up if printed to a .pdf. What's bad is that there is no option for displaying where the pages end. I saw a comment from a developer about this saying that it would be too difficult. But I know they could figure out a way to do that. There are so many option. Just have the length of each page increase if a user increases the width to the right. That could cause issues if the user wants the content displayed on certain pages. So, have the page separators actually splice the content shown and add whitespace if page width/length grows ... or shrink/grow content of pages accordingly like a picture. Or, when in "page view mode" like this, warm the user if they are trying to grow pages sizes ... or just have a fixed page size in this mode!
My main issue: Why it is so glitchy with an epen. If I tap the screen it wants me to type - this happens a lot when I'm scrolling and not tapping also. The developers didn't input an option to make the pen the default and disable tap to keyboard.

OneDrive sets the bar for easy simple productive note taking.
OneNote is one of the easiest most scalable note taking applications available in the industry today.
There is really few cons to using OneNote. Sometimes the interface can be a little difficult to format on the page.
