Is it a good idea to use cacert SSL certificates instead of self signed one in production?

http://serverfault.com – At work, I have a bunch of web interfaces that use plain http or self signed certificates (load balancer management interface, internal wiki, cacti, ...). None is reachable from outside specific vlans/networks. For home usage, I use cacert SSL certificates. I was wondering if I should suggest my employer to use cacert SSL certificates instead of self signed certificates and plain http. Anyone use cacert ssl in production? What are the pro/cons? Does it improve security? Is it easier to manage? Anything unexpected? Can it affect qualys scans? How can I convince them? Of course, paid certif (HowTos)
