1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling service October 26, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year
When I subscribed to this publication I received an e-mail saying that they couldn't give me my user-name yet because of "computer problems". So they gave me a temporary user name (HBROCT) and password. Now a week later I can't get in, and customer service is demanding that I re-subscribe for a more expensive "upgrade". What a crock!

I can do without the hassle, and they can do without my $$ apparently.

You would think that the people that run this org would be way above this kind of cr#p. TWO days for a response? WTH?

I hope others enjoy the subscription they wanted, and that they never have to deal with this places' "customer service".

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Magazine - Appalling Service May 3, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I'm quite a fan of HBR - it was an invaluable tool during my MBA and still seems to consistently be able to provide stories which align to the concerns which are top of mind for me on any given day...

However, i must say that for a business which constistently expounds best practice and business leadership, HBR itself is lagging sadly behond the times. I have never experienced such poor service from any magazine i have subscribed to - customer service is slow and unhelpful, systems are completely disparate across geographies and online vs print subscriptions, and the staff I have spoken to have been unwilling/unable to help me any time I have called.

The policy of replying to customer queries within 2-3 days is simply archaic!!! HBR - you of all organisations should be aware that times are changing, and 72 hours is simply too long to wait for a response on the status of my subscription (which, incidentally, you have charged me for and then "lost" all record of).

Similarly, having your corporate clients sit on hold for 20 mins to speak with a customer service representative, only to be told the phone number provided by the online chat consultant was for a US online subscription help only is too long. To add insult to injury, the representative in your Florida call centre then advised that i needed to call a phone number in the Netherlands - you can imagine I was thrilled by the prospect of spending another 20 min on hold at international call rates... luckily i was saved the hassle, because the number i was provided was incorrect and i wasn't able to get through anyway.

So here I stand...

Subscription Term Name:1 year
I have been a subscription member of HBR for over 2 years now and am a fully subscribed member (Online + Print). The quality of articles and case studies are excellent and definitely worth the reading time. I try not to miss any article in the print issue.
However, on the online front they can do better. For a fully subscribed user, it is a struggle that each time I do a search for any topic, I get a list 80-85 % online articles which I need to "Buy PDF" and just 15 -20 % articles which I can read online. Then why do they charge separate fee for an online subscription in fully paid membership? When I am in travel, I don't want to pull ou my credit card each time to a read an article on a topic of my choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine, but no extras included May 6, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
The Harvard Business Review is a very well written publication that has served me well over the last few years of graduate school. I feel the subscription falls short because it does not offer any additional features such as reviewing past editions on-line or down loading the articles. When I wrote to them, this was their (HBR) response:

"We offer an online subscription to hbr.org which includes the following, but would cost an additional subscription price.

What comes with an HBR online subscription?

An online subscription to HBR includes online access to individual full-text HBR articles, but only individual HBR articles and HBR case studies. You may read the articles online but you cannot download the articles.
The subscription does not include access to HBS cases or cases from other academic institutions. Those can only be purchased individually.
HBR case studies differ from other case studies in that the HBR case studies are fictional.
An HBR online subscription does not include access to the PDF reprints, just to the full-text online versions.
The PDF files are reprinted versions. All the past editions of the HBR until about 1960 are available as a part of the online subscription."

This tells me that everything for this publication is an additional charge.

2.0 out of 5 stars One great article per issue November 30, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
My husband had heard such great things about this magazine, so I gave it to him for Christmas last year. I just asked him if he would like me to renew it. He said that, unfortunately, it only has one great article per issue in it. The rest is no different from any other magazine, and that one article is not worth it to him for us to pay so much for the subscription.

2.0 out of 5 stars Treat your current customers better! March 23, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
I was about to renew my subscription when I noticed they want to charge me $159 as a returning customer vs $129 for new customers. What a great way to promote loyalty...make your current customers pay more!
HBR - you've got a great magazine, but you've got to start treating your customers right.
