    I worked at The Sanborn Map Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It wasn't terribly difficult being one of their GIS Technicians but it could have been better. The big benefit is that you get some government work experience under your belt. Speaking of benefits, those were okay; I wouldn't say they were stellar but they worked (Health, Dental, FSA, etc.).

    Your compensation here (right out of college) is alright, it's a bit under industry average but with benefits it's not bad.

    Cons

    Too many levels of bureaucracy. One project manager, two shift supervisors, and 10 team leaders. For a staff of 50 is excessive.

    60% of the people there were socially inept and not terribly helpful. It was sink or swim.

    The Fort Worth office we worked in had "safe" levels of asbestos in it and would often be either too hot or too cold to work in comfortably. We also had to provide our own fans and space heaters to remedy it.

    Unofficial quotas, digitizing and verifying something that would take 4 hours to do into 1 hour is a recipe for disaster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sanborn should have brought on GIS people to complete GIS-based work. At the time, I was 1 of 5 people with any experience or formal education in GIS or database management. I imagine it's been long enough for them to have figured that out.
