There should be virtually no difference between running a program

predictor of performance.

To add to this: we use Condor as the base for compute grid at Altera and it's on this platform that we do all our performance analysis. Condor adds very little overhead, it shows up largely as wall clock noise in our runs. About +/- 2% in our runs is just system noise (Condor, inter-job load, network latencies, etc.). If we measure clock cycles we can't tell if the job is running under Condor's control or stand alone -- cycle times line up very well.

We run in the vanilla universe. Our jobs have been run this way on a variety of hardware over the years, variety of OSes.
