I have been working at Franziska Racker Centers full-time (More than 10 years)
Racker Centers is a great example of a mission driven organization with strong leadership and a clear vision. Though the agency is quite large, staff can still feel a sense of belonging as well as independence in their work. Benefits and vacation time are great.
As a non-profit, they cannot match the higher salaries of schools or the state. Leadership in certain areas of the agency could be strengthened.
I applied online. I interviewed at Franziska Racker Centers (Ithaca, NY).
Lengthy, two in-person interviews with a group. One interviewer in particular was rude. Signs of lack of/inconsistent caring about employees, workplace dramatizations (poor management), unnecessary workplace stress due to management. Low pay, particularly considering expectations. No discussion during or after interview of workplace ethics and how employees should be treated, what their rights are, etc.
pay 'based on experience'
