With dynamic routing there is no manual intervention and the traffic is routed automatically whenever there is any outage in the network. Also it's quite scalable/manageable. Whenever you add any more sites -- you have to add the new sites/links only. In static routing there is manual intervention every time there is any outage or addition of removal of links/sites. Management becomes quite difficult with the addition of more sites. One advantage static routing has is better control.
