big 5 firm? A small firm? Fortune 500's? Has anybody heard of any
pen-testing firms in St. Louis?

Myself as an example, I took a job with a large company doing
all sorts of security things, not specifically auditing or
penetration testing.  Taking a position like this allowed me
to leverage some of my personal skills to my employeers
benefit, while gaining the opportunity to learn some of the
aspects of security I was less familiar with.  I doubt that
I would have been able to step right in and be a penetration
tester, but I was able to learn the skills and move towards
that end.
