Default Baseline Grids. Who uses them?

Hi. I thought i would start my first topic with quite a boring question. I work for a publishing company that has previously shied away from using baseline grids within their magazines. However i have just been given the task to redesign one of their flagship titles and i'm thinking of using one.

What are your opinions of baseline grids? Should they be used by default in magazine design or is it entirely up to the designer? Are there advantages and disadvantages, I have used them before in other publications and i sometimes find they cause problems with the grid system.
