    I have been working at Hydrogen Group plc

    Pros

    you would want to be on a lot of cocaine to fill this section out.

    Cons

    no direction or leadership from management. strategy from the top down is a mystery. salary is flirting with 3rd World territory. and the comms may as well be paid in string. turnover has new meaning here. staff retention statistics would be a funny read. 57 people since i started. there are no ethics in their provision of a service. the job feels like being paid to annoy and harass people rather than improve their careers or the efficiency of the managers we claim to support and "partner" with. the word relationship is thrown around like pennys at homeless people. and the belief that we are providing solutions rather than a glorified theft is bewildering to most people - let alone the ones who work here and have university educations.

    Thanks for leaving a review. It’s great to hear that you valued your colleagues here at Hydrogen (and I agree, they’re a brilliant bunch of people!) I’d like to understand what you mean by ‘taking all deals from consultants’. I’m very proud of our team culture where we split fees between business winners and researchers and pay bonus accordingly. We operate at a senior level and pay over 1,000 contractors a month and people paid far less are paid monthly in most walks of life and most prefer having 4 times less admin. Feel free to email me with more details about any deals you feel you have had taken from you (iantemple@hydrogengroup.com). Best, Ian

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant 

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

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities, competitive atmosphere, performance and hard work is rewarded, good commission structure.

    Cons

    Company began to come apart at the end of employment there, tons of employee churn, old school KPI approach, employees not really treated like adults until they prove themselves.

    CEO

    Thanks for your feedback – I’m really pleased you made the most of the learning opportunities here at Hydrogen, as I’m very proud of the growth mindset we promote. However, some of your comments are inaccurate. Our staff churn in H1 was the lowest it’s been in 3 years! Additionally, we have recently rolled out the ‘I own my time’ agenda to further enhance a flexible and adult working environment. The aim is to drive and promote a culture where productivity and accountability is key, as we empower our staff to progress their careers. Wishing you all the best for the future, Ian

    Former Employee - Legal Consultant in London, England
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Hydrogen Group plc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - legal is the highest performing team so there is good recognition - when you do get through to someone who want to talk, it can be a good way to help someone in the industry - if you want a career in recruitment, this is definitely a good place to be! - managers are all nice and give good feedback and support

    Cons

    - do not expect commission for around 6 months, but when you are successful, it will be a decent amount - have to make over 60-70 calls at least in one day and you have to get used to getting shut down and people hanging up the call on you - a little political and consultants think very highly of themselves for no reason at all.

    Team of highly experienced and consultants formerly top performers at global companies now working together in a smaller scale and most importantly transparent environment in order to grow and develop a team that Wont devolve into the cut throat environment you all hear so many horror stories about
