Chemomics is a great place to start a career in development... and then return after leaving...

Associate (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Chemonics International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA ton of opportunities (new business travel, project management experience), good training programs and room to move between regions and projects. Great people and interesting work.

ConsEventually the lower level work becomes too basic. You can feel discounted from actual development and instead feel like an accountant or a editor. But there are always field opportunities.
Difficult once you've been there a few years and made manager to move to director.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to keep talented managers. Better pay for associates means better quality of project management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
