I concur with a lot that has been said above. It depends on the mix of writers in the group, size of the group, genres represented, etc...
A couple years ago, I was in two different writing groups. One was larger, but I was the only SFF writer there. Also, it was more of a back-patting type of group. The second group was all SFF, but very small (usually just 2-3 of us attending). The moderator of that group was the cut-throat type, very blunt with his criticism, which is probably why the group never had much of a membership.
In the end, I left both groups because they didn't supply the kind of criticism I needed to push my writing to the next level. That's just poor luck on my part.
