Pros

CI is a very balanced company to work for in both lean and fat times with regard to work-life balance. They are positioned well through market needs and legislative dictate for their existing products, and spends enormous monetary and personnel capital on innovation and growth.

Cons

It is a plus for me, but many of their locations, including the world headquarters and Corning-Valley manufacturing sites, are in more remote locations. So, if a big-city location is your preference, you may not be satisfied. With that said, they invest HEAVILLY in local culture, arts, and education, and are building continuously new infrastructure to improve the local area.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue on course and tack. You are doing fine and making sound decisions to weather the current global economic slowdown.

    Pros

    The company continues to spend money on research and developement to insure future success

    Cons

    As a lowest level worker with many years at the company, I don't think my ideas and experience is utilized to benefit the success of the company as well as it could be and has in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more promotion to work up positions from within the plant . These people have more ownership than those that only expect to be in a position less that two years.

    Pros

    Corning values innovation which makes it an interesting place to work, there's always something new. Corning benefits are at least competitive with other companies. If you like a small town/rural environment, Corning is a nice place to be.

    Cons

    If you do not like living in a small town/rural environment, Corning can be a tough place. Like many other companies, advancement at Corning seems to depend at least as much on politics as it does on achievement. Corning's emphasis on diversity seems at times to lead it to advance people before they are ready.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be recognized for how "diverse" and "tolerant" you are and try developing a culture that isn't quite so polite and is more willing to question things.
