Pros

Customization on this platform is really fantastic and everything is so easily customizable, the user interface is slick and clean and very friendly looking.
My experience with SurveyMonkey has been very impressive over the past several months. I have gleaned wonderful feedback for ways that I can continue to grow my company.
Great tool to gain some quick feedback on anything that may be on your mind. Nice to know what customers are looking for so that I can gear my business to meet their needs.

Pros

Great looking site design and flawless implementation. Amazing pricing and good product support.
Absorb has been great to learn, the customer support team and CRM's are amazing to work with. They are always willing to help achieve overall success for Admin and learners.
Their customer service is by far THE BEST customer service I have ever received working with any other company. They are fast, responsive and always willing to help me out.

Cons

And completing would give you typically anywhere between 0.5-2. All surveys initially start with a few boring routine questions, which make you pissed off.
The company's take on my dilemma was - "Pay for it" and you'll get the information you need. In my opinion they shouldn't bother having a free version of this software if it functions that poorly.
There should be more protection factors when approving registrations and preventing fraud.

Cons

Again we were really disappointed about the department/sub-department functionality. So if you are using Absorb for multiple clients not just internally then beware.
Thus, whenever you update a course, you will have to re-enroll all users. It has limited assessment options.
Resources don't have a thumbnail- makes them look empty/incomplete. No place for text on the home dashboard.
