A batch of beer is done fermenting and is essentially ready to prime and
bottle. My question is, How long can I leave it in the carboy or fermentor
before I HAVE TO get it bottled?
Any pro's or con's to waiting?

This question is often asked in these brewing NGs.  The consensus
seems to be:  Don't worry.  Some guys report leaving in primary as
long as 6 weeks with no problem, altho that would be a little extreme.
I would suggest up to 2 weeks or so should be fine.  If you think it
may be a lot longer before bottling, rack it to a glass 2ndary.

I think it's up to most people's personal choice.

I move beer out of the primary within a week.  This way I don't get
too much of a yeasty flavor.  

As for having to bottle, I've stored beer in a very clean glass carboy
for months, before bottleing.  It was ok.  I just don't like storing
anything where the yeast layer is clearly visible.  Once again, trying
to prevent yeasty flavors.
