There are always pros and cons with everything, but in my opinion, the pros outweigh the cons in this regard. 

The first advantage is faster processing. In bitcoin mining, each node competes with the rest of the network to add to the overall blockchain. Blocks are found only when other nodes within the network agree to their discovery. Having multiple blocks within the same network can speed up the discovery process because it reduces latency or delays. 

The process also irons out discrepancies in Internet connections between nodes placed in different regions. In turn, more direct network connections between bitcoin nodes speed up the notification process.
