What should I be looking at in addition to Wordpress?

My employer (I won't name directly, but see my profile) is looking to replace our current SharePoint based CMS. SharePoint works OK, but our implementation was built up over years with dozens of different consultants. We've ended up with something too difficult for our end-users to update and too slow for our devs to push out quick changes.
We're looking heavily at WordPress for its general popularity and ease of use. Drupal and Joomla have both been rejected already as "too complex for our end-users". Concrete5 has come up as a possibility, but there are concerns about getting support/long term viability in going with a less popular platform. Are there other possibilities that I should be looking at?
We'll be migrating about 2,500 pages of mostly static content getting about 2 million visits a month. The main problem we've had with WordPress is that we'd like various departments to have control of their own content without the ability to edit anything else. We've proofed this out using various plugins, but there's also resistance to relying too heavily on 3rd party plugins.
So...any favorites out there that I should be checking out?
