    Pros

    Gives a great training ground for those that are interested in managing government contracts. Essentially, this is what this company has become, a contracting machine.

    Cons

    Forget about actually learning anything about "development." That is not the emphasis here. If you want to learn about government project management, contracting,etc. This is the place. Does not seem to value employees anymore, all the talents are leaving and will do so now that they have announced that there will be more cuts because they can't win a proposal. I appreciate the fact that they need projects to keep the company going, but rather than putting a good program together, they are more concerned with the bottom line. If you put a good program together, the money will come. I wish I experienced the days where Chemonics actually gave a hoot about the so called "people" they are supposed to help.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to examine the organizations true mission. Please do not look at your mission statement, that is just going through the motion. Look in your heart and the companies strength. Chemonics has great talent and development professionals, but if you keep going the way you are, you will lose. Get back to how this company became a great development force. Employee owned was also a bad mistake as the only people that can actually benefit is senior management. Been through many of this in my past, haven't seen a dime and 2 of them crashed and burned. Yeah and million dollar bonuses are usually not that great at this time. Maybe take an example from the real world CEO and not pay yourself until one sees a turn around. e.g Japan Airlines.

  2. great learning experience, lots of work
