The main thing with Binding to AD is to make sure you make all AD accounts Mobile accounts by enabling Create Mobile Account at Login in the Active Directory Settings of Directory Utility.  That will minimize the majority of network login issues.

About benefits, you will have the same benefits of Windows clients joining an AD environment.....centralized management....and so on......

Probably you could struggling with some permission issues in your Windows 2012 fileshare server....but all of that can be managed...
