    Yes, it can be bad.
    Yes, it can be good.

    Only exchange links with quality sites. Check out their link profile. If they have a habit of linking with spammy sites or link exchanges. Don't link with them

    Then after they pass that inspection. Only exchange links with sites of similar niche. If your site is about cars, then tireRus is ok, but bookYourCruiseHere is not ok.

    Vary your text anchors.

    Don't put 100 links on a page.
    Don't make your site look like an link exchange site.

    Moderation is best here.

    Personally I only exchange links now if it makes sense to do so from a usability point of view. Ie - will my site visitors benefit from this external link? Is it relevant to the subject matter of my own page and does it enhance the message I'm trying to get across (this also applies to me linking out one-way).

    If it does, I'll then have a look into their site metrics and identify whether it's participating in anything dodgy, part of a bad neighbourhood etc.

    I don't (anymore, at least) actively look for link exchanges for the sake of upping my link count...

    It will help a lot to your website to get traffic and backlink. But, before exchanging link make sure that you are exchanging link with relevant site and with high PR.
