Benefits of Self-Made vs. Established Religion

I know that many of you follow paths that you have more or less constructed on your own, and many of you follow belief systems from established religions.

What do you think are some benefits or drawbacks of each? For example, I think that the structure of an established religion sometimes forces you to examine ideas and spiritual "muscles" that you would never use if left to your own devices. It is sort of like how writing a sonnet paradoxically forces you to be more creative than if you write in free verse.
