I'd say No.

"Bad color management" is usually worse than "no color management".

The main purpose of color management is to make sure what you see on the screen looks like the printed result. With "no color management" you will have to make test prints. With "bad color management" you will still have to make test prints.

So keep it turned off and make test prints, or calibrate your monitor if you want to turn it on.
