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…
Finding and analysing data, coaching clients, negotiating with vendors
Company is not very hierarchical or political. Most people are high EQ and very pleasant. The FIFO/disjointed nature of the work means you don't spend much time with people outside of your current project team.
The interview process is tough, consisting of 1 phone and 4 case study interviews with Managers, Principals and Directors. Regardless of how tough they were, they were all in all an excellent development experience and generally one of the more enjoyable interviews I've experienced. The case studies are not the typical strategy consulting examples, being more focused on the practical, operational side that the firm prides itself on. After the 2nd round of interviews, a social with members of the firm were held for the top candidates to really see what the firms all about!
The interviews were structured like a standard consulting interview. Half an hour of a case study, followed by half an hour of some standard interview questions. Questions include, "Why do you want to do consulting?", "Give examples of delivering exceptional results", and a few situational questions on how you would deal with difficult clients.
Practice case studies, there are lots of amazing resources online that will help your cause. Specifically, look into value driver trees and issue trees as a way to structure your thinking. Get some friends to help you out, as I did to take you through questions to get you thinking in a structured manner. Most importantly however, is be genuine and be honest. Don't pretend to be someone you think the interviewer wants you to be. The firm is full of quirky and interesting personalities which is why it is such a great place to work!
Very varied depends on project. I have had days where I finished early in the afternoon and days where I finished much, much later
Remuneration is very competitive. Above industry standard.
Meals and all travel expenses are covered. You will earn a lot of frequent flyer points. You have the flexibility to live in any Australian capital city as you will typically fly to work for the week days and home for the weekend.
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
The training programmes themselves could do with some improvement, however they are getting better very quickly. Most of the training comes from learning on the job, as every engagement leads to new problems to solve!
Level dependent - seems to be about ensuring you fulfil criteria to meet job requirements of next level. System appears to be fair, and promotions are done biannually.
Very strong on gender diversityJoin us to bookmark!
