For overall management is the reason.  
It is easier to build a true hierarchy that your company adheres to and it becomes the policy.
The other reason is the larger your volumes become the amount of time it takes to apply ACL to the sub-directories for individuals vs apply the groups and have the users in the proper groups

Good example is
Level 1 people have rights to Folder A and B.  Your Level 2 group have more rights to folder C & D, but they also have rights to folder A & B.  By nesting them is level 1 group to be able to access both sets of folders with only having to add them to one group.  This also keeps control of who has access to what.  Now when a person changes position or leaves the company you can just remove them from the group and you know for 100% certainty that they do not have access to the folders.
