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…
Work is interesting - lots of analysis At lower levels client interaction is quite limited - mostly excel and powerpoint work with some access thrown in for good measure
The culture of the company is very results focused, being one of the few consulting firms that genuinely care about what is right for the client. The hierarchy is very flat and middle heavy, meaning that you are able to learn and develop skills regardless of where you are in the organisation. Teamwork is essential and communication with your team and client is your most valuable asset when it comes to consulting delivering sustainable results. Social life has gotten better thanks to a work from home Fridays initiative being driven by senior leadership. Colleagues are all down to earth, exciting people who all have their own unique quirks.

Here is business problem, how would you fix X?
Read "Case in Point"
Most projects I work ~12 hour days. When between projects we are able to work from home
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.
All managers are extremely good mentors, with a strong culture of developing each other during engagements. The business is very flat, meaning people of all levels are easily accessible and always happy to help out. They have a very open performance review system, and a culture of open feedback is strongly encouraged.
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
The company has being trying to improve gender diversity, however on a whole it is still an extremely male dominant firm. As it is an international company, ethnic diversity is not a problem here.
I have not heard of any policies the company has in place to specifically address this, although I am aware that there is no social discrimination when it comes to the recruiting process.
Involved in an unconscious bias training session
Most work is done on the client site. When not at the client site we can work from home. There is limited space in our head office for people to work while not at clients
