No problem. If you mean .dta files, .dta files are readable and writeable by all platforms on which Stata will run. That is how you can do use http://servername/datafile.dta.

If you mean .smcl logs, they are just text files, as are ordinary .log files.

Sometimes I have seen .ado files with the infamous DOS CR-LF, which make them look double spaced in any Unix flavor system if you type them, but Stata knows what to do with them.

My question concerns the compatibility between output created with
stata for mac and stata for windows. If working in a team on the same
project are there problems using stata on different operating systems?
