    Compared to what? You didn't say if you were considering any alternative to the Enterprise Repository, so I can't really give you my pros/cons without a basis of comparison.

    For our needs, we switched from Enterprise Repository to a file repository (backed by Git version control) a year ago while using PDI version 4.2. Pros of the Enterprise Repository:

    - Completely integrated with Spoon
    - Provides integrated scheduling with remote execution

    Our cons:

    - Enterprise Repository lacks many features of a true VCS (e.g. branching, merge tools)
    - Complex jobs may run significantly slower under Enterprise Repository (could be solved by caching metadata--see PDI-8742)

    Without Enterprise Repository, it is still possible to schedule jobs by running kitchen.sh/pan.sh under cron (or the equivalent on Windows).
