    I have been working at Partners in Performance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Strong business model / positioning in the marketplace
    - No offices = live anywhere you like
    - Put money where your mouth is (read: many pay-for-results engagements)
    - Super-smart but grounded colleagues (ex-McKinsey/BCG, without the attitude)
    - Very fast growth in all regions (translates into promotions)
    - Little to no politics; laidback culture
    - Significantly above-market compensation

    Cons

    - Grueling travel - 4 nights/5 days a week is not uncommon
    - Limited benefits package in the US (but comp. package makes up for it)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Let employees contribute to 401K in Year 1
    - Move to consistent 3 or 4-day travel schedule

    I have been working at Partners in Performance as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    package, geography, project opportunities, practical focus, being a part of bigger world

    Cons

    Same as other companies. Rather subjective if comes to substantiation.

    deliver, match the standards and you will be rewarded

    I have been working at Partners in Performance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Get to to really cut your teeth into heavy industry
    * Opportunity to implement projects and have an impact at the client
    * Different industries (mining, manufacturing, entertainment etc.) and types of work (business improvement, sourcing, rapid optimisation of capital expenditure, commercial due diligence etc.)

    Cons

    * Some business improvement projects can take up to one year (sometimes more) minimising your overall consulting experience
    * Consultants that come from Strat houses would normally favour business improvement type work as it involves implementation type work, but normally find themselves staffed at corporate offices and not on site and vice versa for those coming from operations backgrounds wanting the corporate office exposure
    * There is no remote allowance for business analysts and associates
    * Bench work (time when you're not staffed) can be as long as 2-3 months! This can get very frustrating
    * Mentorship is fantastic through the development leader program, but formal training is probably below the average you would receive in the corporate world

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * PIP is a great firm so keep up the growth and winning new work
    * Need more time off for formal training through a mixture of class and online modules
    * International exposure should be part of the development of the consultant, and not just a function of staffing shortage

    I worked at Partners in Performance

    Pros

    Good people, interesting work, company has a good standing in its niche market, which is a growth stage. Strong methodology and culture.

    Cons

    Expect to travel 100% to remote locations. Little interaction with anyone outside your direct client team. Some mid-level managers seem unprepared. Very hard to get a bonus, based on individual discretion instead of performance.

    Pros

    Great work and company culture. Flexibility with schedule and potential of travel around the globe. Meritocracy based career path where you can grow as fast as you are willing to.

    Cons

    I really dont feel that there are any downsides to working at Partners in Performance. We have a global structure that is centralized in Sydney, Australia.
