    Pros

    Great pay, amazing benefits, holiday pay, paid vacation, pension.

    Cons

    A lot of things are based off seniority even though HR claims no one is more important than the other. Most of the people who work there now come from a generation where it wasn't necessary to go to college to get a good job so they presume that you think highly of yourself.

    You never see upper management or have time to visit HR even though they stress an open door policy. There are high tensions between upper management and employee

    Advice to Management

    Work harder on employee relations

    Pros

    Corning is the world leader in specialty glass and ceramics. If you love glass, there is no better place to work. Corning is one of the few companies that supports a healthy balance of applied and fundamental/exploratory research. Researchers are encouraged to pursue their own interests and offered many opportunities for growth and training. The work environment is very friendly and highly cooperative. Corning has a polite small-town culture that fosters a sense of family. There is a feeling that "we're all in this together."

    It is obvious that most people choose to work for Corning because they are passionate about what they do and about what Corning seeks to accomplish as a company. That is part of what makes the research culture here so invigorating.

    Corning has some of the top scientists in the world working on life-changing innovations. Combined with a friendly, support environment and many opportunities for growth, what's not to love?

    Cons

    No major cons to speak of. I've spent nearly half my life working at Corning's Sullivan Park research facility, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up Corning's 160-year tradition of excellence for another 160 years!

    Pros

    Large diverse company with many career options.

    Cons

    When I was, there many of my peers were manipulative and immature in their dealings. Too much focus on gossip, brown-nosing, and office drama, not enough on actually doing the job.

    Advice to Management

    If you truly want to evaluate your staff, don't rely on hearsay or second-hand information. Get off your duffs and actually see what they do (or don't do).
