Any downside for using RAW?

As a newbie, I ve never really bothered so far (saving as extra fine JPEG), but lately that I start to get few decent/keeper photos here and there, I would like to have those backed up with no quality loss.

My a6300 offers the option for JPEG (fine, extra fine), RAW and RAW + JPEG. Latter option seems quite attractive, although I m not sure what quality profile is assumed for the JPEG. Any idea?

My other concern and from what I ve read so far, is what type of post processing is done by the camera (for JPEG), and also what type of post processing is not applied when picking RAW file instead. Does that mean that RAW is totally uncorrected and that I have to fix things using e.g. LR or CC?
