    I have been working at Partners in Performance full-time (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

  2. It is an average experience, as the company focuses on its own good, much more than for the employees

    I worked at Partners in Performance full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    * great location in Sydney
    * decent remuneration

    Cons

    * Team of pompous, pretentious and egotistical people that think that they are super smart and therefore better than everyone else. They are not.
    * Encourages an environment of back stabbing for personal gain. This creates an environment of no trust, no sharing nor nurturing. Do not trust anyone
    * Micro management is a real issue. They disguise it as part of their special management tools, but there are members of management and senior management that abuse this process and utilize the system to micromanage, intimidate and blame their mistakes on to their staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a closer look at work satisfaction. Do an anonymous survey. I think you will be horrified at the results.

    Pros

    excellent renumeration package
    PIP offers one of the best compensation packages for consulting companies so if you are after money it is the place to work

    Cons

    working work culture
    extensive hours
    bully bosses that have no respect for juniors
    you need to provide your own pc and phone
    you need to wear safety gear to go to work
    the company will never be able to get out of the mining/industrial space due to the culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    tools do not make a good strategist
    the company will never be able to get out of the mining/industrial space due to the culture
    lack of work life balance is a big issue

    I have been working at Partners in Performance full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * You do work that matters, ending up with a great results chart that demonstrates the effort you've put in during the past 6-9 months (on average)
    * PIPers are a great bunch! Rarely will you run into snobs. They are all smart while being down to earth
    * Amazing company culture means you will be comfortably employed with great support staff in Sydney
    * Varied experience across many industries, although majority heavy industry
    * Development leader program ensures rapid career progression
    * Aggressive growth strategy allows for ample promotion opportunities

    Cons

    * Poor professional development scheme. Expect 2.5 weeks of formal training in 4 years!
    * Can get stuck into particular industries or types of work. Seems like they get to make up their mind over 'what type of consultant you are' very early on, so any future opportunity in diversifying your experience and portfolio becomes very limited
    * Since the core product is operations consulting, you are likely to spend your PIP career in the operations silo. There is no exposure to HR, sales, marketing, strategy etc. So if you want that exposure early on in your career, you will NOT get it in PIP
    * They do not support any formal studies (even upon return to company post studies)
    * Very poor work life balance, expect to be away from home every week day for your entire employment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Think about profit sharing trickling further down the line, esp for engagements were consultants have spent > 12 months
    * Make engagement DIVERSITY a Priority in consultant development, especially the junior ones. Do not just box them up into were you are comfortably selling them.
    * Invest more in formal education (in house or external) so your consultants do not feel like they are missing out on by not being elsewhere
