    I have been working at Corning as a contractor

    Pros

    I have a great manager.
    Most people work here a very long time. A lot of my coworkers have been here 30+ years!

    Cons

    Most people work here a very long time, therefore there are not a lot of job openings.
    It's in Hickory, NC.

    Advice to Management

    Hickory, North Carolina is not the greatest place for an engineering facility given that it has made several top 5 worst places in America to live!

    Pros

    Strong values - the company and the people who work there always do the right thing and always help people. Career opportunities abound with cross-functional and divisional experiences encouraged.

    Cons

    Very traditional and conservative with dress and work-life integration.

    Advice to Management

    Consider options to allow employees to work from home and dress more casually to be comfortable and better able to be creative.

    Pros

    Great culture that values personal time and work-life balance. Interesting work for engineering type jobs. Great benefits package that includes 401(k) matching, Pension and site based performance bonuses.

    Cons

    Corning seems to have a hard time firing employees that don't perform. This can frustrate employees who believe they are dragging the department/business down.

    Pros

    Strong company with a breadth of opportunities in different technology arenas. Able to attract strong talent. Great place to live if you like rural setting and outdoor activities. Amble opportunity for international travel and assignments.

    Cons

    The area is a throwback to earlier days of manufacturing. If you're more metropolitan and enjoy activities such as theater, shopping, or clubbing, you are going to be real disappointed.
