    Pros

    As a very large company, Chemonics has endless opportunities for professional growth, with a culture of supporting people exploring different roles. It's well managed, with well-honed, ISO-certified systems. You get a mentor for every new task you perform. Good people who are truly dedicated to making a difference. Collaborative culture. Lots of opportunities for recognition and little bonuses.

    Cons

    The leave policy is a little stingy. And as is typical of this industry there is more work than can fit in a standard business day.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the leave policy
