So easy a monkey could use it!

We use SurveyMonkey for multiple tasks, everything from how new processes are working out to what we want to order for lunch, almost every task has had no issues and ran without a flaw

The ability to administer surveys where the people who partake remain anonymous is amazing, and the fact that it is free is the icing on the cake! I do not use this service all to often, but when I do it is quick and easy.

Other than a lack of some options, as compared to the paid services, no major cons

Translating Member Needs into Useful Data

Our non-profit homeschooling group uses SurveyMonkey as a tool for members to voice their needs. Our annual Member Survey allows the Board of Directors to hear from the entire group about how the organization has served them in the past, and what they would like to organize in the future. Electronic polling allows members far and near to participate in the the decision-making process whether or not they can attend an in-person meeting. Project-specific surveys help narrow down focus, finances, and participation.

Survey Monkey allows our Board of Directors to gather input from members quickly and efficiently. Questions can be tailored to provide data that powers decision-making on behalf of a diverse group.

We struggle to share access to features across our group of 8. It is awkward to collaborate in the creation process when developing our annual Member Survey. It would be handy to have a group access function to enable our leadership team to contribute and modify questions communally.

Comprehensive survey software with a steep learning curve for advanced usage

SurveyMonkey allowed us to gather community data, but due to some less than ideal question format choices and the limitations of the account level we could afford, we needed to export the data for manual processing in other tools. This failing was partially due to our inexperience - but I feel a better user interface could prevent some common new user errors.

The feature set is large - even at the lower account levels. And if you select the best question types, the data insights that are provided are very good. Additionally, the tools to review responses and weed out incomplete or suspect data are impressive.

If you use the wrong question type, the data you get back is not useful - and given the range of types, it can be easy for a beginner user to make the wrong selections. Additionally, many very useful analysis features are only available on the highest account levels which are out of the price range of most small organizations. On an aesthetic level, there's somewhat of an "old school" feel to the interface.

It does the job but leaves much to be desired.

I’m glad it exists - it helped me make surveys. But even though you are grateful for it, you can still bemoan it’s terrible ability to be used by a team, and it’s reliance on the perfect survey maker.

It’s easy to make multiple surveys and it prompts you to customize them. The surveys look great and encourage people to take them!

The team function works terribly. It was impossible for multiple people to edit the survey prior to sending and it also doesn’t check for question accuracy. For example, a question that’s clearly a checkbox in the sound of it should not be able to be published if checkboxes aren’t an option for it.

Best tool for surveys and information gathering

As a DevOps engineer in health care organization, we frequently seek feedback from stakeholders/customers on our product, SurveyMonkey is the best tool to get the quickly feedback from customers so that we can improve our product in next iterations.

This is the best tool for gathering the customer/stakeholder requirement. As an agile this is most efficient way to collaborate with stakeholders to get feedback on product increments.

Over all the website / survey page look OK however User interface has to be more eye soothing. Most of the time I have seem, surveyMonkey emails are residing in spam/junk folder in my outlook. As compared to other survey tools I don't see Survey Monkey has any such cons.
