Pros

You are limited only by your own technical competence. You are usually the one doing the technical work, be it analysis or testing, supervising any help you can get, managing the relationship with the customer, figuring out how much to bill the customer each month, and answering for any and all results. There is always a new, interesting problem to solve. If you feel stuck with one particular type of work and you want to do something else, you are limited only by your ability to convince customers to pay you for it. Lots of variety. Dummies are self-selected out of the company. You and everyone get to see the fruits (and shortcomings) of your work.

Cons

Every quarter hour has to be billed to a project. So, there is always an awareness that you are on the clock and that you have to account for all of the time you spend on someones project. The management strucutre is very flat so if you need some guidance, it is up to you to seek it out. If you are very busy, you might know that you have two to three weeks of work at the most (1 week is more the norm), so if you are prone to anxiety or worry about how much work you have or that you might run out of work, this might not be the place for you.
