    I have been working at Corning as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Most people are very friendly and helpful. Salary is fairly competitive, and the benefits are decent, even for a contractor.

    Cons

    HR is a complete joke. Zero communication to employees below the management level. Many empty promises of promotion and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within. HR needs to get a more hands on feel for the employees in their divisions before making hiring or position transfer decisions.

    Pros

    Good company, work is not too physical, good benefits.

    Cons

    Work 12 hour rotating shifts from days to nights, sometimes have overtime scheduled to where you will do a 24 hour flip from a day or night shift to the opposite. Very little room for advancement. They do not work meetings into the 12 hour schedule, so you could work 13 to 14 hours in one shift. They have a lot of meetings.
