Culture Amp is a versatile platform that offers a range of use cases to support organizations in various aspects of their employee engagement and feedback processes. Users have found value in utilizing the skills courses offered by Culture Amp on a daily basis, enabling them to continuously develop and stay sharp in their roles. The platform also facilitates biweekly 1-on-1 meetings between employees and managers, creating a structured space for communication and mentorship.

Additionally, Culture Amp supports monthly feedback sharing among colleagues and bosses, fostering a culture of open dialogue and growth. Quarterly introspections conducted through the platform help employees reflect on their progress, align efforts with their supervisors, and work towards shared goals. Across the whole organization, Culture Amp plays a pivotal role in measuring staff engagement and setting culture focus goals.

By administering company-wide surveys semi-annually and other surveys such as those measuring diversity, Culture Amp provides valuable data for organizations to measure their progress against benchmarks and identify areas for improvement. HR departments find the platform particularly useful for managing employee engagement surveys, as well as providing direct feedback to managers on employee sentiment.

The tool's ease of use and anonymous surveying capabilities allow for comparisons throughout the year, enabling companies to track changes and make informed decisions based on data-driven insights. Furthermore, Culture Amp streamlines performance evaluations by organizing peer evaluation nominations and providing an archive of information. The platform's ability to administer ongoing automated surveys and ad-hoc surveys on demand helps organizations gain insight into employee engagement, turnover rates, interview experiences, and new hire onboarding experiences.

Especially in today's remote work environment, Culture Amp proves invaluable by collecting information on how employees are doing and feeling about returning to the office. Regular surveys help keep employees engaged while demonstrating that the company cares about their well-being. This not only addresses retention and engagement but also ensures that organizations have data-driven insights to make informed decisions.

Beyond day-to-day operations, CEOs rely on Culture Amp to assess team issues, prioritize areas for culture improvement, and gain a comprehensive understanding of areas of excellence within their organization. HR departments utilize Culture Amp primarily to gather worker satisfaction survey results, supporting the ongoing evaluation and enhancement of employee experiences.

In conclusion, Culture Amp offers a wide range of use cases that span from skills development and performance evaluations to employee engagement surveys and culture assessments. The platform empowers organizations to gather valuable feedback, make data-driven decisions, and foster an environment of continuous improvement.

Comprehensive Talent Cycle Tool: Users have praised Culture Amp for being a comprehensive tool that covers various aspects of the talent cycle, including 1-on-1 meetings, feedback provision, and customizable surveys. This has been mentioned by multiple reviewers.

User-Friendly Platform: The user-friendly nature of Culture Amp's platform has been consistently highlighted by users. They appreciate how easy it is to build surveys, customize them, and navigate when answering the survey questions. Several reviewers have expressed satisfaction with the platform's user-friendliness.

Unparalleled Support from Culture Amp Team: Reviewers have commended the exceptional support provided by the Culture Amp team. Multiple users have appreciated their live chat support and office hours, which assist with technical issues and provide guidance on survey question phrasing. The expertise of the team in their field has also been highly valued.

Inconsistent Sign-In Process: Some users have expressed frustration with the need to sign in every time they reopen the browser, which can disrupt their workflow and slow them down.

Limited Tracking and Sharing Features: Users have suggested the inclusion of a notebook section to track progress on courses and tools, as well as share it with colleagues and on social media. This feature would enhance collaboration and help users stay organized.

Lack of Advanced Reporting Capabilities: While the software offers basic reporting features, some users feel that additional help in self-service reporting would be beneficial. They express a desire for more advanced reporting functionalities to analyze data effectively and gain deeper insights.

Clunky Admin Interface: Several users find the admin interface clunky to use, particularly when accounting for dotted-line reporting and tracking manager changes. Improvements in usability could streamline administrative tasks and enhance user experience.

Challenges with HRIS Integration: Users have reported experiencing quirks with the HRIS integration, making it difficult to seamlessly synchronize data between systems. Addressing these issues would improve efficiency in managing employee information.

Need for Better Text Analytics Feature: The recently launched text analytics feature needs improvement according to some users who find the attributes of sentiment confusing. Enhancements in this area would enable more accurate analysis of comments from surveys.

Difficulty in Automating Processes: Users mention difficulties in automating certain processes such as file connection with an HRIS. An automated file connection would save time by eliminating manual uploading of new files for user refresh.

Higher Price Point for Limited Offerings: Some users feel that the price of the software is high considering its limited offerings in terms of performance management and HR analytics. A better balance between pricing and available features could provide greater value for customers.

Inconvenient Survey Sending Process: Sending surveys to a large group of users requires manually uploading a CSV file to the site, which some users find inconvenient. Streamlining this process by providing easier methods for sending surveys would improve user experience.

Limitations on Anonymous Comments: Users express a desire for anonymous comments to show which team someone is on, as it would provide better context when reviewing feedback. This feature enhancement could enhance the usefulness of anonymous comments.

Restriction on Admin User Surveys: Some users find it limiting that only admin users have the ability to send surveys. Expanding this capability to non-admin users would allow for more flexibility in gathering employee feedback.

Users of Culture Amp have provided several recommendations based on their experiences with the platform. The most common recommendations include exploring the full depth of Culture Amp and leveraging its resources for maximum benefit. Additionally, users suggest using Culture Amp for gaining insights into employee sentiment and developing focused business plans. They find value in using Culture Amp for surveys, 1-1 meetings, employee engagement/feedback, and performance management. Many users also appreciate how convenient and reliable Culture Amp is for both personal and career development, recommending it as a requirement for all employees to use.

Culture amp allows us to provide employees peace of mind when submitting their feedback on surveys. This data is also very easy to track, and pull analytics from. It is a system designed to be analyzed and to have the data pulled from, so the trends are extremely straightforward to analyze. <br>The system gives clear information to employees that their data will be protected. The information that we can pull from the system allows us to maintain employee confidentiality while still being able to view the data at every level to analyze the different areas of the business and manager levels.
  • Employee confidentiality
  • Creation of reports
  • Ability to view data at many levels
  • Hierarchy settings can be difficult to navigate
  • Some reports and filtering can be tough to translate
  • The system itself needs someone who is familiar with it, it is not as straightforward to someone who is looking at it for the first time.
We use Culture amp mainly to run our company wide engagement survey. We were able to utilize Culture Amps pre loaded questions for most of our survey, which allows us to compare our results against the benchmark which is extremely insightful for comparing understanding where you fall within your market.
We also are able to use Culture amp for smaller launches of surveys or very targeted needs for feedback.

We use Culture Amp for the whole company. On a daily basis we use the skills courses to stay sharp, on a biweekly basis we do 1-on-1 meetings with our managers, once a month we share feedback with our colleagues and bosses, and once every quarter we do introspections through the app to meditate on our progress and our goals, and integrate that with our bosses to align our efforts and achieve more together. It is part of our culture.
  • Daily tools to learn new skills
  • 1-on-1 meetings
  • Providing feedback to colleagues
  • The daily reminders are excellent
  • For some reason, you need to sign in every time you reopen the browser
  • It would be nice to have a notebook section where I can follow up on the courses I'm undergoing and the tools I'm learning, and to be able to share that progress with colleagues and on social media
  • If it incorporates all the organization, Culture Amp could offer a culture map so strategic improvements can be made for the organization
Culture Amp is excellent to set up your workplace culture rituals through it. It provides structure and accountability.

It is less appropriate for starting new rituals for your company. That is, it is important to remember that the tool is not the culture. You place the culture and cultivate it every day, and Culture Amp allows you to funnel that culture through a structure that strengthens it.

Culture Amp is currently being used by our entire company. This tool is especially important right now because everyone is working from home. Our organization likes to collect information on how we're doing and how we feel about coming back into the office. These surveys are extremely helpful because you can sometimes feel very alone when you're working from home. They help us stay engaged. Culture amp helps our company show that they care about their employees. It solves for retention and engagement.
  • Employee Engagement: surveys with great questions help us stay engaged, especially when we're working from home.
  • Survey Templates: Easily customizable
  • Customer Support: Great support - they help you with how to set up surveys and they have a ton of experience in analyzing survey results
  • I understand that they're price is very high
  • I wish it had more to offer in terms of performance management and HR analytics
Culture Amp is necessary for your organization. If you're having issues with retention and employee engagement, your solution is Culture Amp. While everyone has been working from home, it's been very difficult to connect with others. Culture Amp has helped our HR team better understand how people feel about their current situation. It has also helped employees feel they're heard. This tool is really easy to use and they provide amazing customer support. This is an essential tool for your organization's tech stack!

We use Culture Amp across the entire company on a quarterly basis to assess how our culture/happiness is... and then we also use the exit interview tool for any employee who is departing our organization. As a CEO, I use CultureAmp to:
  • assess if there is a problem on a specific team (maybe with a manager, or morale, or something else)
  • decide which areas of the company culture to prioritize our focus on improving
  • understand where we're excelling
  • Easy to understand where you're improving (or failing) in culture among your employees, like manager-quality or salaries, etc
  • Anonymous comments allow you to really get color on problems that employees point out
  • It's very easy to use -- the admin side AND user side is so user-friendly
  • benchmarking against other companies of our size is very helpful (and of course, against ourselves)
  • I wish the anonymous comments would show which team someone is on, which would add a lot more color
Well suited:
  • Companies with more than 15 employees
  • Companies where someone is really focused on improving culture. You don't want to just see problems and not do anything about it.
  • Companies where they're transparent about problems and opportunities
Less appropriate:
  • Companies with 15 or fewer employees

We use Culture Amp to do our bi-annual Employee Voice Survey. It's is being used company wide, and is a key input for evaluating employee NPS and manager NPS.
  • The Slack integration is great
  • Very customizable
  • Automated send/reminders
  • Some quirks in the HRIS integration
  • We wish we had a better mechanism to track employee NPS
  • We'd love additional help in self-service reporting
Culture Amp is a great tool for employee surveys, and has been able to scale with us for 5+ years. It's customizable and helps provide rich data on how employees are feeling so that we can continue to use that feedback to improving our company culture quarter over quarter.

Culture Amp is being used across the organization to assist in promoting a continuous feedback culture--gathering data on employee engagement through surveys--and it houses our performance evaluation process. For surveys, the way that Culture Amp collects and reports data is very easy to use and intuitive and removes the need for a data analyst to organize information in spreadsheets. It streamlines performance evaluations a lot as well by keeping peer evaluation nominations within the platform and allowing for an archive of lots of information that's easily visible when writing a biannual performance evaluation.
  • The Culture Amp support team is unparalleled. They offer live chat support as well as office hours that you can attend for help on anything from technical issues to the best way to phrase a survey question. They are always willing to help and are experts in their field.
  • The report pages are very detailed and it's easy to view the data in a lot of different ways. This helps with more insightful analysis.
  • I love that you can benchmark your survey results to your industry/region; it helps a lot to give context to your results.
  • I wish there were a way to include pictures as part of surveys; sometimes the thing we need feedback on is best demonstrated visually.
  • The interface of defaulting to the engagement home screen and then having to navigate to performance was tricky to train people on; when they had performance evaluations due, they'd log on, see the empty engagement inbox, and assume they had nothing to do rather than navigating separately to the performance inbox.
I'd recommend it to smaller companies and remote companies where giving feedback is very important but often more difficult. I think it would be difficult to control administrators/surveys in larger companies where there's less understanding of the departments. I also wouldn't recommend it to larger companies that prefer lots of branding customization since Culture Amp doesn't include a lot of options for that.

We use Culture Amp for our employee engagement surveys. The tool is owned and managed by our HR department, but surveys are sent across the entire organization. The Culture Amp tool allows us to easily and anonymously survey our entire employee base and make comparisons throughout the year with how engaged our employees are feeling. The tool also permits us to provide direct feedback to managers on how their employees are feeling.
  • Ease of use
  • Easy to administer
  • Easy to integrate
  • Difficult to account for dotted-line reporting
  • Difficult to track when someone's manager changed
  • Admin interface is sometimes clunky to use
Culture Amp is ideal for asking your employees what is working in your organization as well as where there are areas for improvement. It is very easy to design surveys from scratch or use their built-in templates. We find the industry comparisons tools very valuable to ensure we are providing a culture that employees want to remain at or join.

Culture Amp is being used across the whole organization to measure overall staff engagement. We use this survey to get a baseline for our culture, then set culture focus/goals to work towards.
  • Customizable questions and templates - everything can be customized to fit my demographics I want to see, and our core values/culture.
  • People science backed questions in all areas of staff engagement, DEI, team/individual effectiveness, onboarding, exit surveys, etc. Culture Amp is one service that provides so much benefit to all aspects of the talent cycle.
  • Easy to use platform where I can build surveys, customize them, and so many analytical tools where I can easily see my results, the impact of each question that goes beyond just high/low. Real science that tells me what is most driving/impacting staff engagement and some ideas for how to fix it.
  • It does take a lot of time to launch, analyze and act on an engagement survey. The tools are easy to use, and I actually think the time I spend on it is very useful for my company. But if someone doesn't have much time to give to this I can see it being overwhelming.
Well suited - if you are trying to measure staff engagement, and you really are interested in drawing conclusions and making actions based on the survey results.
Less suited - if you don't have a leadership team / HR group that is invested in learning about staff engagement + acting on it, Culture Amp will probably provide you with too much detail/options that you'll be able to do with.

We use the platform for administering surveys across the entire organization. We have ongoing automated surveys and we also run ad-hoc surveys on demand. We use the information to gain insight into employee engagement, turnover, candidate interview experience as well as new hire and onboarding experience. The data helps us identify opportunities for improvement, evaluate new initiatives, as well as collect baseline data prior to launching initiatives, to be used later for comparison and evaluation of progress.
  • Provides survey templates with benchmark data from all other users, grouped by industry and company size.
  • Very user-friendly analytics of the post-survey results- easy to apply filers, graphs, charts, heat maps, great visuals. The data and charts are also very easy to extract in several different formats such as Excel, PDF, and CSV.
  • Extremely easy to share results with leaders/managers, apply security permissions for only parts of the data if you don't want to share full company results.
  • They also have a library with very helpful/guided PowerPoint and storytelling templates for preparing a high-level overview of results and presentations.
  • They recently launched a text analytics feature but I think it still needs some work. I don't find the attributes of sentiment to comments to make complete sense. Text analytics are also not yet available for export so it makes it very difficult to share with others in presentations and reports outside of the system.
  • Currently they don't have the ability to set an automated file with and connect with an HRIS (at least not with Ultimate) so every time you want to refresh your users you have to upload a new file feed manually (which is pretty simple, it is just impossible to set the refresh on autopilot).
Great partner for administering our annual engagement survey. You can set up automated reminders for users who have not filled out the survey over a period of time. They also offer a lot of benchmark data and resources to really understand what your organization's results mean and how to go about picking the most critical pieces of information that need attention and can have the greatest impact on the organization.

If you choose not to use their survey templates or add your own questions to a survey, you may not be able to get any external benchmark data, as it all depends on how relevant your own questions are to the questions used by others in their shared templates.

Culture Amp is used to administrator our semi-annual company-wide surveys on how the business is doing and also for other surveys we just started running like one we use for measuring diversity at our company. Culture Amp also provides benchmarks from data they gather from all their users that we can use to measure our own progress.
  • The platform for Culture Amp is very user-friendly. It is easy to navigate when answering the survey questions.
  • Culture Amp gives the ability to compare your business to other benchmarks from outside sources.
  • Culture Amp can cut data in many different ways based on criteria like department, gender, tenure etc.
  • Culture Amp guarantees anonymity of its users because it will not cut data a certain way if there are less than 5 people in that category. Ex if there are less than 5 females, you cannot cut the data by gender.
  • It would be interesting if users could see comments from others on a platform and that admin could give answers to comments and other people could rate the comments so that admin would see if certain feelings were mutual or if just the outliers make comments.
  • As a user (not an admin) I would like a platform to log-into so I could see my ratings overtime, especially since we often survey on the same questions. It would be nice to see if things were improving in my mind or not.
Culture Amp is a great fit for our company. Bigger companies would probably also see results from it because the more users that take the survey then this increases the ability to cut data by various things like, age, gender and tenure. Smaller companies may find it difficult to cut data, but may just want to use the platform to survey without sectioning employees out into groups.

Our company uses Culture Amp to help measure engagement and provide feedback for managers. We do a company wide engagement survey every six months and present the findings to our team and discuss actionable items we learned from the survey. Throughout the rest of the year we utilize Culture Amp to run 180 reviews for our managers. We do this on a 6 month cadence as well, the first 180 is peer feedback (leadership) and the second is team feedback.
  • I love that the survey is customizable and that additional questions can be added.
  • A really interesting feature is the benchmarking and the data used is from other companies within the same industry and vertical.
  • The fact that this is completely anonymous and that our team can feel confident to provide honest and real answers to the survey questions.
  • They already have a good assortment of templates to utilize but I would like to see more added on a regular basis.
  • The system is easy to use, and this does not relate to its functionality, but maybe more interesting design to the pages and experience as a whole.
  • It would be interesting to have the ability to share the survey results with the team and be able to add feedback comments as well.
Culture Amp has been incredibly helpful for digging into our teams engagement levels and figuring out the exact areas of focus for improvement. It was easy to see trends across teams and understand the specific areas that we were doing well and also the areas that needed immediate focus. These surveys have also allowed us to be able to talk to the results and what the company will be doing to work towards the actionable items. It really has helped us become more transparent.

Used mostly by HR to gather worker satisfaction survey results
  • Great user experience
  • Very intuitive to use
  • Easy upload of a csv file for emails of users to send surveys to
  • The only downside is that to send a survey to a large group of users you must manually upload a csv file to their site.
  • Must have a admin user to send surveys
Small group of survey respondents would work well.
For larger groups (greater than 5000) I'm not sure it would work well.
