Well, my only experience with it was being thrown into a project where I had to customize an existing Gatsby site for one-off demos, and on short time frames. After grappling with it a bit, I eventually defaulted to just ripping it out every time I had to work with it.

It seems like it's really effective for fast, greenfield development. However, I found maintaining it to be generally super unpleasant, as I now needed to both a) consider how CSS works, and b) understand the author's personal conventions.

That said, it's extremely popular, so either the hype snowball has reached critical mass, or it genuinely solves real problems for a bunch of people.
