I worked at Hydrogen Group plc full-time for 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 have been working at Hydrogen Group plc full-time

    Pros

    Strong brand in some practices - well networked, great reputation for being specialist and delivering. This gives a strong platform for new joiners.
    The commission structure has some mixed reviews but I tend to find the people who say it's terrible are those who are not performing to the right standard. Having researched into the market, most competitors are very ambiguous as to what you will receive commission wise and it's quite often at the discretion of their managers whereas at Hydrogen it's very transparent with even calculators so you can see what you earn each quarter.
    Great incentives - if you work hard and perform well you really do reap the benefits.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change - most of it necessary - but the communication from the leadership teams has been dreadful at times which often leads to gossip which spreads like wildfire.
    It's hard to do a commission scheme where one size fits all - in some areas it can feel easier to make money.
    New hires are often not up to scratch - overconfident and never deliver. Need a better screening process.
