I have been working at Allendale Association full-time (More than 5 years)

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 Management

Employees sometimes feel undervalued by management.
