Partners in Performance Reviews
Reviews by Partners in Performance graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.2GradAustralia surveyed 5 graduates working at Partners in Performance. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 5 responses.
- The responsibility and expectations are exceedingly high. Most days involve being stretched far outside my comfort zone. The remuneration is very competitive.
- By far the amazing people and the results focused culture. The amount you learn from extremely talented and driven colleagues is immeasurable. The best part is that they genuinely care about your development and wellbeing!
- Meet new people, work in cool industries, work with smart people
- Learning opportunities and high responsibility from the first day
- The travel can be very exciting but can also become tiring and tedious quickly (particularly if the destination is remote/rural).
- Hours can be tiresome, however interesting work more than makes up for it!
- Hours are tough, constant Mon-Fri travel is very tiring and makes it difficult to stay in touch with friends back home
- Long hours
What insiders say about…
The role is very analysis focused, with several opportunities to branch out and coach the client in generating sustainable results. Day to day responsibilities include analysis of improvement initiatives, coaching client teams, gathering data, creating reporting mechanisms, daily meetings with clients to align expectations, and of course some friendly banter with the team!
Culture varies between teams depending on the manager. The nature of the work involve small teams of 3 to 10 people at client sites. We generally have dinner and occasional team social events together with the team as there is a lot of travel involved. The nature of the work requires intimate teamwork

Here is business problem, how would you fix X?
Read "Case in Point"
My hours are often long, say >12 hours per day. I typically do not do work on the weekend.
Base pay is good. Away loading (how much you are paid to travel) is laughable at lower ranks - was quoted a high figure in offer letter but will probably only earn half of it as I have only travelled to less remote cities.
Work very closely with managers on projects and there is a strong focus on development through formal mentor programs and Manager KPI's and informal focus on improve work and learning new things
There is room to improve formal training. Role involves a large focus on analysis and presentation building however formal training for these areas is poor. Formal training for other skill required for job is more rigorous and due to the intimate relationship with more senior people while on projects, informal training is good
Promotion depends on tenure and performance. You mentor actively helps you work on performance gaps and is "your voice" during promotion periods. Promotion review periods occur biannually, however you generally need to be in one role for 18 months before promotion even if your performance is good
There is a very low percentage of women working at my company. There has been a very recent, yet inefficient, push to rectify this
A core value of the firm is "Do the right thing". As the company prides itself on delivering sustainable results, this comes naturally to all consultants during engagements. The focus on safety of all members is definitely a major plus! However as a firm itself, there is definitely room for improvement in providing active programs to get more people involved is CSR outside engagements.
Not much to say here, as a consultant not much time is spent inside the home office. There are hot desks available if you want to come in during work from home days. Dress code is suited to the client with a strict no tie policy in place at all times!
Company policy is to "do the right thing" socially and environmentallyJoin us to bookmark!
