Y Combinator: Advantages vs. Disadvantages?

Besides the usual suspects like fundraising or mentoring, what would you say are the advantages and disadvantages of joining an accelerator program like Y Combinator?

There is obviously a lot of accelerlators and a lot of noise as most of them add 0 value. For that reason we would only consider a program like Y Combinator. Perhaps I am wrong on this point... so open to suggestions.

My team and I are looking into this as part of the strategy of building a tech driven operation for our business, but we are still unsure on wether pursuing something of this nature is worth it.

Thanks for the help!
