What are the pros and cons of compressing the website data?

I have a question about compressing the website data.
I recently did it for my website, and found the results to be really good as the site loads really fast after the compression rules addition on the server.
But I doubt if it has some cons also or not?
Can anyone tell me if it has some negative effects also or not?

thanks in advance.

The only “con” i can think of is compressing or “minifying” html and css can make the code harder to maintain. For example when you download the Bootstrap3 files, you’ll see there is a minified version (intended for use on production sites) and a non-minified version (intended for development).
