Pro No GNOME3
It is a straight port of the GNOME2 Evince to GTK3 without sacrificing its UI like Evince 3 did. It also has all the cool stuff that professional apps need, like: Menubars, editable Toolbars, Menus with Icons, Menus with keyboard shortcuts.
Pro Great Evince fork
It has been forked when Evince was still good.
Con Disappointing search
In comparison with its origin, Evince, the search results in Atril is disappointing. You can search, but only locates your search term per page, the one you're located on. Want to find it elsewhere? Search all pages one by one, page by page. Hence, I personally, working/ searching in large pdfs, therefore prefer Evince, which does give you the search result for the whole document. Apart from this, Atril seems a great piece of (fork) work.
Con Some GTK dependecy
It needs GTK+ and its dependencies.
