Pros and cons of structural authorizations

Would you recommend structural authorizations? If not, why? What are the pros and cons of structural authorizations?
It depends on your organization and your objectives. I have implemented structural authorizations at certain clients and at others I have recommended against it. It just depends on how your HR organization intends on using HR. The pros are that you will have fewer roles (roles would be functional only, no organizational security); if you use structural authorizations, it will make administration much easier to deal with. However, if you attempt to use both PA security and PD authorizations (AKA Structural Auths) you will surely regret it.
