good to have some industry experience for a beginner, but after that, better leave this small town

Research Scientist (Former Employee)
Corning, NY

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

Conslack 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 Senior Managementshould 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Many 'managers' and 'department heads' tend to forget them. The most… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    Excellent management

    Statistical Engineering (Former Employee)
    Corning, NY

    I worked at Corning as an intern for less than a year
