5.0 out of 5 stars Much better under Bloomberg May 5, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I was a long-time and avid subscriber until last year. In fact, I started in 1989 while in business school. The aspect that I appreciated the most was the in-depth reporting that I couldn't get anywhere else. However starting in 2008, I noticed that the in-depth articles were getting fewer and more of the reporting seemed to be the same as any newspaper. That was about the same time I started hearing that the operation was for sale.

So, I canceled in early 2009. Recently I got an offer for a free issue of the relaunch under the new ownership of Bloomberg. I have to say I'm very impressed. The in-depth reporting is back. Also, there's a breadth of content that probably comes from the Bloomberg network that is also very welcome. So, I'm a fan again. Hope they keep it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Helpful Review. December 26, 2012
Subscription Term Name:6 months|Verified Purchase
First of all, I subscribe to Fast Company, Inc, Businessweek, and HBR. If you want to learn how to run a business than Bloomberg Businessweek is not the magazine for you, you need to maybe subscribe to HBR (Harvard Business Review) where they have awesome case studies and pretty much base their entire magazine on how CEOs run companies, how start ups succeed, and include non-stop in depth case studies detailing what statistically works and what doesnt in certain areas of business. There is no other magazine in print that will give you the know-how to learn everything, but Harvard Business Review will keep you sharp. They also have apps for the iphone with informational videos.

If you are in an online start up, the natural course would be to read "TechCrunch" everyday to keep up with what's going on in the online world (It is a web-based magazine).

"Website Magazine" which is free and highly advisable if you have a web-based business because you stay in tune with the very fast moving happenings of the internet. Website magazine covers SEO, Social Media, and Tools you need to know about. They have a PRO option for $22 a year that allows you to sift through all their issues and have access to premium info, I highly advise this as it will keep you in the loop of what available tools there are for you to succeed in the internet world and at the end of the day its completely free for a standard print subscription, so why not try it?

"Fast Company" magazine is just okay, let me tell you why. Everything covered in Fast Company you can find on TechCrunch for free. Fast Company has a free online magazine that is updated very often, and they do not do a good job of condensing all that info. into their printed monthly issues, so why not just go with the free route?

4.0 out of 5 stars You Could Do Better January 11, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
After several years, I am giving up by BW subscription. The magazine is getting pretty light - and reminds me more of USA Today than the New York Times. The articles are pretty general and lack depth. Additionally, the magazine is very US-centric and often limits global coverage. It is a good light read for US business news, and if you aren't looking for great depth, might be a good choice. For my money, I would rather pay up for the Economist and Fortune.

Update - 2014 - I received a complementary subscription of Bloomberg Business Week and it is much improved over the version I reviewed 6 years ago. Much closer to the Economist - which is still my "go to" magazine. I have therefore upgraded the review to 4 stars to reflect the improvement and encourage the BW editors to keep up the good work.

2.0 out of 5 stars More style than substance October 28, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
It's not the old BW, and this is not a good thing.

Articles tend to be a mile wide and an inch deep. The publishers seem to put far to much emphasis on trying to be "artsy" with weird layouts, colors, and graphics which at times render the articles almost unreadable,

Will not be renewing.

1.0 out of 5 stars BW is not what it used to be October 28, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
I have been a BW subscriber since junior year of high school, over 9 years ago. Since the sale to the Bloomberg group reading this magazine has become unbearable. BW was always cheap to subscribe to and always kept me in the know, but now all I would get is basic news coverage and no indepth stories or analysis. Even the tech guy who I liked to much has been let go. I guess Bloomberg can flex its news muscle and just aggregate the BW content from their news sources, but experienced readers will realize that the stories are lacking the overall quality we came to expect. I have cancelled my subscription and received my refund. Economist subscription costs twice as much, but at this point this is the only quality consistent alternative that I am aware of. Big does not mean better, at least not in the Bloomberg Business Week situation.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Classic gone astray - will not renew December 10, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
This has been my favorite business magazine and I've continuously subscribed to it for the past 15 years. The articles were indepth, intelligent, and thoughtfully written. And its business technology coverage was stellar.

Unfortunately, I fully agree the the recent reviewer comments that it is now a completely different animal since Bloomberg took over it a year ago. The change is akin to what happened to Coke when New Coke was introduced...a disaster! It is now colorful (as in, it will give you dizzies!), superficial in coverage, and completely lacks depth. It reads like a magazine written for 17 year olds who might lack an attention span to read a 5 page story! It was a classic that's gone astray. I'll not be renewing my subscription. I would recommend The Economist as an imperfect alternative. Although, it will not live up to the high bar set by the pre-Bloomberg-era BusinessWeek.
