    Pros

    Allendale is located on 100+ acres in Lake Villa, IL. Their overall mission is a great one that helps kids and you get a part in that. There are a lot of nice people who work here and really do care about the kids they serve.

    Cons

    If you work her in a support services capacity, outside of direct care and education, then there may not be many opportunities for advancement within the organization. There can seem like a lot of red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees sometimes feel undervalued by management.
