Considering a subscription to HBR. Those of you that read it, do you feel like the articles give you meaningful tips/ideas for how to improve professionally? Does anyone have other suggestions?

I have one and like it. I got a subscription because I always ended up using my free articles early in the month. I think they chose to write on topics that go deeper than the standard free articles from places like Forbes. I would recommend.

Print articles include only the best online articles from reputable authors so they’re pretty solid. But the online articles are LinkedIn fluff written by people who don’t really know what they’re talking about

Agree with this. Re: WSJ and HBR, they both fulfill different use cases. I prefer WSJ for biz news and HBR for leadership theory / management insights.

GP1 - HBR is good and has a lot of great theories. I have access to it and have been using to improve my thought process, while learning about the industries etc. But yes, it is still theoretical. C1 - HBR and WSJ cannot be compared. Two completely different things.

I’ve had WSJ for years, but haven’t really read HBR since business school. May need to take a look at that subscription to help broaden my knowledge base.

Go for it. I am able to read only a few articles each issue (although would love to read more) but they are enough value for money.

I would highly recommend it . Also , I read the economist , wsj, nyt, fortune, the Barron’s

I am not on any other social media except for LinkedIn and this app . I manage my time wisely. On top of my full time job , I also provide expert consulting to PEs, so I stay on top of things .

Piggy backing on this... which would you choose, HBR or WSJ? (If you could only have 1)

Love the subscription. Print articles are great and I too was running out of free articles every month.

I am so grateful to have a job right now but I am really struggling. I’ve been at D for a little under a year and have been really unhappy with my experience. In particular, my current project and my direct supervisor make me feel unbelievably incompetent and under appreciated. Given COVID, there is little flexibility to roll off. I’ve tried to stick it through but I’m at a breaking point. Any suggestions on how to make the best of it? Or next steps?
