Pros: Open source software is an opportunity to work with people who share your good idea, freely, without interference. Also, to learn about more 'open' styles of development and management; essential 21st century skills.
Cons: OSS contributors are, essentially, 'freelancers' who rarely get paid, and all too often work alone.
