      I worked at Clinton Health Access Initiative full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Exposure to a very dynamic and multi-disciplinary influx of people They just have got the brand-name clinton to have a whole cohort of people working for free or from esteemed institutions Opportunity to work with consultants across various locations

      Cons

      They need to really think through what kind of people they are hiring. The background check has to be good. Politics is entrenched and I had a hard time navigating this kind of firm after having come from a research career. If you are well experienced, then don't fall short of asking full-time offers only and not settle for volunteer role which many people do but that is falling straight on your face.

      Advice to Management

      Do some capacity building and hire right kind of people and management bandwidth needs some strengthening

      I have been working at Clinton Health Access Initiative

      Pros

      - Some people are competent and qualified and are genuinely driven by the mission statement – the passion is palpable and it is positively inspirational to be in their teams. The learning can be immense but this is contingent on a lottery system of which team/ manager you get. - HIV/ AIDS and malaria programs are particularly impactful – the results are measurable and the work is truly life saving. Some strategic...

      Cons

      - Need a structured and objective review process for feedback and promotions (and compensation – which is below market rate). - Nepotism is rampant. People have brought in their brothers and friends who are grossly underqualified with no work ex, accomplishments or skills! - Nepotistic influx of people who were fired from their previous consulting job for incompetence/ some sort of an inappropriate relationship...

      Get out of your ivory towers and fix hiring, compensation and career paths. Else, the org will very soon be a shadow of its former self.

      Pros

      Mission-driven colleagues, if you get the right team and manager

      Cons

      Disorganized and duplication of work across countries. Little transparency. Club of EVPs. Growing rapidly. High turnover.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in your employees. You shouldn't have to be a martyr to work in non-profit. When people are invested in, and paid well, they do better work.

      Pros

      1. People: An opportunity to work with amazing, passionate people. You never know how big a rockstar is the guy sitting next to you! 2. Entrepreneurial culture: Both a pro and a con. There are no rules on who can do what, and thus its a great opportunity for proactive people to seek greater responsibilities and progress in careers quickly. 3. Exposure: With ops in over 25 countries, its a great opportunity to work...

      Cons

      1. Managerial gap: Though the analysts and associates are amazing and most brilliant, lack of leadership becomes evident at the Manager - Associate Director - Director levels. This a major driver of people leaving around the ~2Y timeframe 2. Lack of systems: Read no formal feedback system, management reviews, career appraisals, etc. What this means is that CHAI is a world of many teams, and your experience could be...

      Advice to Management

      Start thinking seriously about formal career paths for people. The recent Management Study is too broad and leaves unhealthy room for Managers to slack on team tasks like appraisals, feedback and career discussions.

        If you are a hard worker, self-starter and a go-getter you will have the ability to take on tremendous responsibility, build your resume and gain a wealth of experience while doing very meaningful work. CHAI is made up of very smart and dedicated people.

        Cons

        Mentorship is not prioritized at CHAI, nor is work-life balance. You need to recruit into a team that has decided it is prioritizing mentorship or you need to seek mentorship externally from your CHAI colleagues. In order to succeed, you must be willing to give your all to CHAI; however, in order to have longevity, you need to know how to have work-life balance and not get burnt out. Working at CHAI requires maturity,...

        Advice to Management

        Emphasize mentorship. People are CHAI's greatest asset. Young, dedicated workers are leading most of the work. If these young individuals are not mentored and are not told to mentor their teams then these individuals, their teams and the organization as a whole will be stunted in the long-term. Mentorship is skill that is taught and it is an organization-wide value that needs to be prioritized.

        I worked at Clinton Health Access Initiative full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        CHAI´s benefits are very good, above the standard. Also, there is a lot of interesting people to work with and in general, good people to be with.

        Cons

        Poor induction process and employee oriented service. Most thing have to be learned alone and if you don´t know what to ask, you can really have a bad time trying to figure out things. Management style of some demonstrates lack of knowledge in that area. Arrogance can be felt among many.

        Advice to Management

        Please prepare managers in their role, specially how they support their subordinates for better performance.
