Expensive; clunky & shows its pre-os x roots; cross-platform so not a lot of integration with Mac-specific os features etc.; a lot of the on-line support, plug-ins etc. aren't free ... but if you need a real relational database and don't want to delve into php/mysql etc. it's the best thing out there.

My day job; if you're a programmer, you'd be better off with PHP+MySQL or similar. FileMaker's only real advantage is that it gives you all the GUI/layout stuff as well.
