One Map Service vs Many Map Services

We have approx. 10 x master data sets that have been published as individual map services. Each of these services represent different data themes, but all have their own unique location identifiers. These services are being consumed via Geocortex and from this platform, we extract/use data from another database.


There is a discussion going on regarding why we have not combined all ten services into one large map service, with an identifier code representing each of the ten data sets. 


In the past, I've only dealt with many individual map services and not one large one.


Can anyone reflect on any advantages and/or disadvantages of having one map service with everything in it, rather than 10x smaller map services.
