    I have been working at Hydrogen Group plc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's easy to say "all recruitment firms are the same" or that you will deal with the same issues if you stay in this industry, but this is not the case at Hydrogen. The leadership here goes out of their way to ensure the teams are engaged and have tons of incentives. There are clear expectations for success in your role, as well as a pathway to growth. Monthly reviews are consistent to ensure you have the support you need. Benefits are top notch and great work/life balance. They embrace internal promotions and diversity in the workplace. Easy for anyone to succeed here as long as you put in the work.

    Cons

    It's a fast growing company with an ever expanding market. Be vocal on your needs and you will be supported to achieve your goals here.

    Pros

    The team within Hydrogen group are supportive and engaged with regards to helping you succeed. Colleagues are willing to help, knowledgeable and give you the opportunity to define your own destiny. Great benefits, vacation, but ultimately the good people are what make this company great.

    Cons

    Only real negative is not having a structured induction and L&D plan, however this is being put in place.

    I have been working at Hydrogen Group plc full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    • People tend to be pretty nice at Hydrogen • Great flexible working hours for recruitment (8-4 in my team) • Not a really aggressive Sales Floor • Good Culture and mix between fun and professional environment, although depending on the day of the week, may feel more like one that the other. • Great incentives • Approachable senior managers and Top billers. Happy to share their knowledge • Hard Work is rewarded • Good Central offices, work benefits including Gyms, private health care and Help to Buy Schemes • Some Good people in the business • Global Platform • Company is now growing and investing. There MI scheme will help tie some good people to the business • Very easy to grow with the company and move to international offices

    Cons

    • Commission is paid 2 months in areas • Sometimes lack some real industry leaders and knowledge to see what is coming with the more technical markets • Some departments have lacked strategic leadership which has resulted in some bad hires

    I worked at Hydrogen Group plc full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn and take ownership and accountability for your own career and speed of development. I was at Hydrogen for 9 years and had 4 different roles during that time and was almost always challenged - I only realised the extent of how much I had gained from my time there when I started working for another company.

    Cons

    Hydrogen is relatively agile but this can be a downside - sometimes the message to it’s employees could be more consistent. It has been a few years since I worked there however!

    I have been working at Hydrogen Group plc full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Forward thinking, strategic risk takers and well educated across multiple functions. Great bunch of employees, all entrepreneurial, commercially astute and intelligent with high values.

    Cons

    Recommend some more focus on working on more team work when it comes to delivery. Entrepreneurial spirit is important, but shouldn't become our employees' purpose and therefore the company's by-proxy.

    I worked at Hydrogen Group plc full-time

    Pros

    Some good people working there but diminishing rapidly...

    Cons

    The reputation went downhill in all aspects once they opened Singapore. Management were more interested in the social culture and would come in weekdays gloating about how many "girls" they slept with. If you didn’t drink you didn’t fit in…. The stories you hear in Singapore are totally true and some actions in the office by a particular staff member were an arresting offense. He was never disciplined for his actions. And from this point it went from one disaster to another. You name it.. Hydrogen did it. Guess what Karma has caught up with them and their reputation in Asia is a complete embarrassment….. Shame on the COO. If you value your career in recruitment then stay clear of this company. Plenty of other reputable companies out there…

    Pros

    Ambitious, professional, good L and D in APAC, innovative.. It's a fast paced environment and is a fair business to work for. They have navigated difficult change recently very well.

    Cons

    Lacking sometimes on the communication side of things but this has improved. Can be a bit pressured. That said they are moving to a more consultative approach

    Pros

    nothing good comes from working in this company unless you like working with mindless leaders

    Cons

    it is obvious the recent positive reviews in March are from top management in APAC. (Seems like they have more time writing reviews to save themselves and their mindlessness over running a company properly) You get better commission structure from competitors with a share price that isn't plummeting since 2012.
