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 have been working at Hydrogen Group plc full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good learning ground, good database system

    Cons

    Hydrogen Singapore:

    It's all about sending spec CVs to clients. Management does not bother to understand their staff on an individual basis. Everything is about KPIs KPIs KPIs. The attrition rate is very high and the management does not look into it as the common believe is that only the fittest will survive and the weak will leave.

    You are constantly expected to be on the phone and lunch for an hour is frowned upon. Good sales people are promoted as managers and most of the time these are young aggressive boys who have no management skills whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into your working culture. Start a warm and friendly culture. Get more locals to start managing or hire good local talent. You are in Asia not in UK!
