Can you give everyone edit rights to all list items and restrict what they see by creating views? How critical/confidential is your data? Do you expect your users to create personal views?

As your list grows, item level permissions introduces some complexity to your list. But there are cases that you might need them, for example, employee survey, confidential documents. If your list items are not confidential, I suggest you take the former option. Hope this helps!
