It's definitely not a bad practice IMHO.
In a perfect world you could have not many groups and could possibly be selective and do your due diligence by adding them manually. But once you get a more complex environment, good luck trying to create a few users and adding the distinct groups they should be part of manually.
You can even use powershell to create the users and copy from another.
