    Pros

    friendly place to work - nice company and town

    Cons

    Worked 1000s of overtime hours at Corning's Diesel Plant. Company gave no extra compensation or time off. Gave a big 1.8% raise per year for insane amounts of overtime. Plant management is really bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give technical support personnel better raises. It does not help moral when Corning hires in engineers that work with you at 20k more per year. They do not know anything and have to constantly ask you questions on how things work at the plant. Also the new hires get all the holidays off while the engineers that have been at the plant for 4 years or more get stuck working weekends and holidays. Also be ready to answer your cell phone all night long to help the plant stay running.
