Angular CMS?

I currently am taking over a project where the developer was building a tool to produce web pages...CMS. The tool is just going to be used for one specific type of page. They built it in Angular and I'm thinking this may not have been the best choice. This is an internal app and I think this may be overkill...I would have just used PHP. I'm not even sure its been tested with any database. I'll find that out today....Any thoughts?

I'm new to all of this, and just working through the Angular course. But the jist of it seems to be that Angular puts a big chunk of stuff on the client side - along the lines of a native app, which might take longer to load initially but then is super fast once you have it. I could be on the wrong track with that. But if that's the case, your angular cms might be worth it if there's a lot of interactivity that would benefit from being on the client side.
