    Pros

    "Be the best" culture
    transparent career progression
    ability to get market share quickly
    Some very high performing teams - best I've seen in recruitment

    Cons

    Very KPI focused business, often distracting from quality
    changed strategy too frequently
    Teams didnt work the well together, but relationship function was addressing that

    Advice to Management

    Get the old trainers back - they made us better recruiters then the competition, the "in house" training was too standard with the rest of the industry.
    Hire better quality - like when the company was Finance Professionals and Project Partners ect, and far less average grads.

    Pros

    Good training. Perfect for a first experience in recruitment.

    Cons

    Big variations from
    A team to another in terms of management. No real long term vision and strategic imput in the work done. Agressive approach to recruitment.

    Advice to Management

    More wore on the merit of a consultative approach to recruitment and try to get rid of wrong managers

    Thank you for your review of Hydrogen. As a matter of course, anybody that leaves the business is offered an exit interview so that we can continually learn and improve. If there was anything you ... More

    Pros

    Training is excellent with 1 full week given to sales skills
    Good location in the City of London
    Young employees, great social culture after work

    Cons

    Some Managers leave a lot to be desired
    Constant threats that someone in the team is going to be sacked
    Very long hours and shocking base salary, especially when compared to competition
    Lots of broken promises

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example rather than just by time spent at the company. Support junior consultants in a better manner.
