I think the pros are:

--Flexibility. That you can pretty much fit it to any goal/need. Though it's considered a strength building program, it's really just a method of progression on the big lifts, and the assistance work can be structured anyway you want.

The big lifts can also be structured in a myriad of different ways, from 2 days a week to 4.

--Periodization. You cycle the intensity of your big lifts.

I don't really think there are any cons, especially to an experienced lifter who knows how to structure their programs. You could turn it into an A/B split, or even a fullbody style workout if you wanted to.
