    Pros

    The people are friendly. I got along great with my dept.

    Cons

    They acquired Mediatech and that's when things went south. People point fingers too much and throw 1 another under the bus. While under former owner of Mediatech there were no such things as temp employees, layoffs and strange rules. When Corning took over all the above applied. I was laid off 1 month shy of my 12 yr anniversary. Upper Management sucks there. They will not defend good hard working people in times of need. Oh and don't get me started on the low pay. Let's just say the employees can make more than their boss and yet do less work and bear less responsibility. Backwards!!

    Advice to Management

    Live by the "values" you preach. Honor long time hard working employees.

    Pros

    There's not many companies that have as rich of a tradition for innovation as Corning. Think of a world without light bulbs, displays (from early days of CRTs to ultra high def LCDs), catalytic converters, optical fiber, and touch screens with Gorilla Glass... you really can't. That's what Corning brought to us. If you like working on tangible products (not an app or something that lives in a cloud), this is a great company.

    Cons

    It's location, location, location (or not). With the primary research HQ based in Corning, NY, most business and technology jobs are restricted to this area. If you have a family and like the small towns vibe, you'll find yourself at home (as long as you don't mind 6 month long winters)

    Advice to Management

    Company has done a lot to attract and keep younger talent but more can be done. Even a rotation program where employees are transferred to other locations can help keep minds fresh and bring new ideas in.

    Pros

    Corning Incorporated has multiple divisions even businesses that provide the diverse employees vast field to explore and utilize their skill most effectively.

    Cons

    Corning's location is not attractive to younger generation. Corning HQ is in a small town in Upstate New York that is 4hours away from the NYC.

    Advice to Management

    Providing more opportunity to grow the younger generation and training them with Corning culture will help the company in the future.

    Pros

    Great environment! Great people to be around. You will definitely enjoy your experience at Corning. You will learn a lot in very little time.

    Cons

    Everyone is constantly busy. I wouldn't really look at this as a con because in every company everyone will pretty much be busy all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro-manage
