I have been using battery grips for 9 years. Considering I have been a professional photographer for 10 years, I have 1 year of painful experience whereupon I did not use one and highly recommend these for a few reasons.
1. A battery grip adds a second shutter button, exposure value dial, auto-focus start button, exposure lock button, and auto-focus point selection button on the underside of your camera for convenient and improved operability.
2. The added weight acts as a counterbalance, which relieves stress on your wrist (shooter fatigue) when shooting with a heavy telephoto lens. Consider shooting with a 6D Mark II and a 70-200mm lens. Without the battery grip this setup would be front-heavy. But when you add a battery grip to the equation, all weight is evenly distributed and it feels easier to hold for long periods of time.
3. Having two batteries instead of one is incredibly convenient, especially if you are a wedding photographer or plan to bring your camera on a day-long adventure. I routinely shoot 12 hour weddings (from the start of hair and makup down to the very last dance), and rarely ever have to change batteries in my grip. That's pretty impressive considering I leave with 1,800-2,200 photos after each wedding.
4. The term "battery grip" is literal. It adds a second, perfectly sculpted hand grip to the bottom of your camera for comfort. Shooting in portrait orientation feels the same way that landscape orientation does.
With all of that said, if you're travelling, or slinging a camera around your neck, a grip might not be the most practical accessory as far as size and weight are concerned. But more importantly, that extra size might make it difficult to fit your camera in a bag or case if it's small (I intentionally use large camera bags to account for the added dimensions of my battery grips).
I have purchased 4 third party battery grips over the years due to their significantly cheaper price points, but have always been disappointed and ended up returning them. Please keep in mind that not all battery grips are made the same. The error that I continually ran into (and one that a lot of people complain about) is communication problems. Most third party battery grips work fine out of the box, but shortly thereafter they stop communicating with Canon cameras for some reason and as a result the battery percentage stops displaying -- even though power is still being provided. I, myself, will only purchase Canon-manufactured battery grips because not being able to tell how full my batteries are is a side effect that I am not willing to deal with.
