I've worked more in Foundation than in Bootstrap, but here's my two cents on using a front-end framework.

Use a Framework when you're on a medium-sized project or have a team with a limited amount of CSS/JS knowledge.

Frameworks save you a ton of time, and both Bootstrap and Foundation come with a wealth of code you don't have to duplicate (setting up a grid, establishing breakpoints, content layout features that use js, etc.).
