I've used drush make on some projects and I really don't like using it.
I find it complicates the workflow for patching contrib modules, or working on my own patches to them, because those are not under direct version control. Hence I don't have the facility of being able to try things and back out of them with git revert or local branches.
Also, in teams where not everyone is comfortable with drush, having one big git repo makes things easier.
