Assigned Groups - Opinions

Given that Yammer now supports Office 365 Dynamic groups, what are other community managers opinions on using them? For example I can now easily create new groups are are automatically assigned to everyone, groups that are based on office location, department etc.

 

Up until now it's been upto my staff to choose which groups to join, and even if bulk invited them they could still leave. It is however a huge challenge to get people into the right groups, and to stop them posting in All Company etc.

 

Will forcing people to be assigned to 4 or 5 groups automatically be seen as a lack of choice, control and impact engagement? Or will it make it just easier to have the right people in the right groups instantly they arrive?

 

Opinions and experience much appreciated.
