    Former Employee - Research Scientist in Corning, NY

    I worked at Corning full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good health benefit, good for new graduate to have some industry experience, after that, it's such a small town without any other opportunities.

    Cons

    lack of career growth, upper management is not willing to invest time and efforts in your professional growth. Not willing to provide trainings to expand your skillsets. No clear picture of where division go. If economy is not good, individual contributors are first ones to let-go, not decision-maker !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should have a clear picture where division goes and what they do, do not wait around expect magic happens to research and make money. research and business is somewhat disconnected, you should let business drives research not research drives business. Individual contributors are ones who should be valued, often times, decision makers are ones who made the wrong decision of doing which projects, that were not making money for company. No clear sense of planning in research. please put the right leader (who have knowledge and quality) in the right place.

    Current Employee - Not Disclosed in Concord, NC

    I have been working at Corning full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Challenging equipment, interesting technologies, great product.

    Cons

    The management does not listen to it's employees or completely grasp processes. Overtime on a exhausted workforce who gets treatly poorly. Set goals and expectation not inline wth actual capabilities. Safety is grossly overstated and is having a opposite effect. Alienates it's workers and rewards ineptitude. What is with all the meetings?!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to have realistic perspective and try to respect your employees.
