Pros: Love how flexible this product is. If you can think of an ETL pipeline, it can do it.

Cons: Can be confusing to troubleshoot your workbenches.

Overall: We use FME for conversion of data formats, reprojection of spatial files, the generation of new geospatial products from existing datasets... and many many more things. Honestly it's hard to overstate how much I love this product, and what it does to help our business. Fantastic product, and even better support.

Pros: I've been using FME for almost 10 years. It's the industry standard for ETL tools. It can read/write between hundreds of different file formats. As a GIS professional, it is invaluable. I recommend it for all my clients, especially when there is data to be converted.

Cons: There is nothing I dislike about FME. It's nearly perfect. Yet, with each release, it continues to improve.

Overall: I've just automated 3 peoples' jobs with this software.

Once you get past the learning curve, it's an absolute must!

Pros: The graphical interface is just amazing. Like building a Lego set but to handle massive amounts of data regardless it's format. I use it for handling millions of CSV lines, but it's strength lies with map formats.

I like the continuous improvement of the product as well.

Cons: There is a steep learning curve, specially in selecting which tool to use and how to configure it, but once you get a hold of it it is a breeze to manipulate your data to tell you stories....

Allows seamless translation of any dataset I ever encounter.

Pros: This is the absolute best GIS data translation software around. It allows me to easily and quickly convert to and from every type of GIS data format I encounter. I can do quick and easy GUI translations and for more complex translations, I can create and modify FME scripts to tackle my project.

Pros: Complete set of transformers that make you able to manipulate the geometry and the attributes as you want. It supports almost all kind of formats. You can use python to increase possibilities.

Cons: The python scripting interface could be improved.

Pros: The flexibility of processing and built-in connectors for example ArcGIS Online make it easy to get started quickly

Cons: We sometimes find it more difficult than we expect to take desktop workbenches and run these in the cloud
