The biggest disadvantage is that spammers will grab the email addresses and start sending lots of spam to them.  If the company has robust spam filtering, this isn't a big deal.

A lesser disadvantage is that it makes employees easier to reach than they would want.  Admittedly, that's minor.

In a word - SPAM! Those employees will tend to get lots of it!

If you are going to post employee emails on a website, it's best to use something like:

fred dot bloggs at website dot com

or to use a generic email address, such as sales@website.com

Also, ask visitors use specific text in the subject line, so that these emails can easily be pulled from the junk which will inevitably come in.

If you are using Google apps then should be okay.  That is a robust spam filtering service...

Don't post email addresses publicly then.  Use a contact form.

If you do publish email addresses you should do something like this to reduce the possibility of spammers harvesting them

or

you could publish the addresses and an image (jpg, gif, png) and they will never be picked up by spammers.
Genuine emailers will have to type the address
