Pros
Popular: 
C/C++ is everywhere. In particular, they power more technologies than we give it credit for.
 
Flexible:
C++ is a multi-paradigm coding language. This means that it supports other styles such as procedural programming as well as Object-Oriented Programming. 
 
Fast: 
Because it is compiled, C++ gains a lot of speed. and is the language of choice for some applications as an example in the finance industry, where small differences in speed in high-frequency trading platforms can make the difference between a profit or a loss.
 
Job Opportunities: 
C++ developers are high in demand. There are over 14,000 C++ open positions on linkedIn alone. 
 
Similarity to Other Languages: 
Many other languages like C, C#, and Java have very similar syntax to C++, making them easy to learn for those that already know C++.
Cons
Difficult to Learn:  
C++ syntax is complex and the standard library is small, making C++ difficult to learn for someone with little programming experience. Although, it's believed to be more difficult to learn C++ than other languages, more accurately it probably takes a bigger investment of your time and effort to learn than some other languages. 
 
Strict Syntax: 
There is not much flexibility to the syntax, so it can be difficult to write code in a readable way.
 
Little Memory Management:
C++ does very little memory management, forcing the programmer to do most of it themselves.
 
Debugging Issues:
C++ can be difficult and complex to debug when it is used for web applications.

Complimentary Skills to have along with C++

C/C++ are the grandfather of most other languages. Once you understand C syntax and (OOP) Object Oriented Programming, you're well on your way to greener pastures. 

Since the .NET development ecosystem spans a wide array of capabilities and tools, it is difficult for .NET developers to know which .NET development skills and training to pursue in order to increase their marketability — and earning potential.  For that reason, learning supplemental languages such as Java, JavaScript, Python, C/C++, and others is expected in today’s competitive skill-set driven playing field.
