I have inherited an SSIS package that has over a dozen Execute Package Task controls in it. They are all contained in one "master" package and that package is executed from a SQL Server Agent job. My question is this - Is there any reason or benefit to running each of these packages from an Execute Package Task control in one package rather than creating a step in the current Agent job for each package?

One reason might be that there is some sort of execution logic built into the package - including running order, degree of parallelism and conditional execution.
