    Wordpress is best for you if you are not good in PHP and MySQL

    Wordpress is very easy to use and customize

    Also you can get tons of Video Tutorials to learn it

    Depends, if you want a intranet site which can be modified as an knoweldge database check for mediawiki.
    If you need a portfolio for outside the company use wordpress.

    I think OP's main concern is how to let every department (different users) edit their own page, and only their page.

    You can do it with wordpress, you will just need to adjust user roles and capabilities.

    Take a look at
    Code:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities
    Unfortunatly, no predefined role is exactly what you are looking for, but you can use a plugin such as User Role Editor to set the exact capability you want to give your users.

    What you want is create a user account for every department and give them only the "edit_pages" capability (and not give them the "edit_others_pages" capability). Then set each user as the author of their own page.

    Each user will be able to edit his own page, and will have no other rights in wordpress.

    Hope that makes sense and answers your question :)

    Wordpress is definitely the easiest CMS I've used. I use Wordpress & Drupal 50/50 depending on the size of the project (Wordpress is great for small, quick websites)

    Do some research on multi-sites for wordpress. I think that is what you want to do. Separate login and section for each department.

    Try out wordpress' multisite function, it should workout just like you said. Each dept will have their own wordpress site on subdomains.

    You can also install individual wordpresses for each department in subdirectories. For example: yoursite.com/office , yoursite.com/accounting

    Than make editorial accounts for each department on each of their wordpress installations and this should work fine without using plugins and subdomains. You will just have to customize each theme for each department :)
