Whoever advised to you drop RAW in favor of JPEG didn't have the slightest idea about photography. Yes, RAW requires work, you must "develop" the photo, jpeg is the equivalent of sending the film to a lab and have them print ir for you; that's something that no professional photographer has ever done, afaik. So the "con" of RAW would be that it doesn't end with pressing the shutter, that's just the beginning. The "pro" is that YOU have total control over the image. The "pro" of jpeg is that it's a small file. The "con"... oh God where do I start... you have a very limited amount of control over the image, some engineer made that decision for you and applied it the same way to every image independently of the type of photo. The quality is lower because the bit-plane is smaller and the amount of data is much smaller. When you take the photo in jpeg the camera's processor discards everything that it thinks the image doesn't need and there is no way to get it back. And so much more...
