I worked at Hydrogen Group plc full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Training, pay is competitive, speed at which you can progress

Cons

They are good at dangling the carrot of progression and keeping you just wanting more. If you are young you can stay a little too long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on doing as you are doing, but like all recruiters you need to keep the senior management happy, also there is a lot of low hanging fruit in more senior placements if some the TL's/Managers were braver to call an MD or SVP.

    I worked at Hydrogen Group plc

    Pros

    Good brand in certain markets, Potential to earn six figure salary within one year (pharma & oil and gas teams only), good back office.

    Cons

    old boys network, no supposed 'glass ceiling', whispering gossip culture. slow with bonus payments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer the people who deserve promotions rather than give promotions out to mates and to move yourself higher. This created a feeling of discontent within many teams.

    I worked at Hydrogen Group plc (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    "Be the best" culture
    transparent career progression
    ability to get market share quickly
    Some very high performing teams - best I've seen in recruitment

    Cons

    Very KPI focused business, often distracting from quality
    changed strategy too frequently
    Teams didnt work the well together, but relationship function was addressing that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the old trainers back - they made us better recruiters then the competition, the "in house" training was too standard with the rest of the industry.
    Hire better quality - like when the company was Finance Professionals and Project Partners ect, and far less average grads.
