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 worked at Hydrogen Group plc full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to move into other departments, good training, newly modernised office, charity work, nice people (though dwindling in numbers), lovely and motivating CEO though he needs to brush up on his internal comms skills (he declared his admiration for Margerat Thatcher at a company meeting once).

    Cons

    Political environment, unethical decision making, unprofessional staff, senior management have little variety in their experience (and it shows), senior management are more concerned with their egos and not other people's careers, consultants are followers of the lad bible, rude MDs, sociopathic Ops leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eat some humble pie. The competition is eating you alive and the solution starts with great leaders. Billing insane amounts of money does not make a good leader. Experience, emotional intelligence and refined talent does.
