    Pros

    The company lives its values. While the company is a global leader in many technical markets in the US, Europe, and Asia, it stills carries the family values and beliefs instituted by decades of family control by the Houghtons. Strong orientation for technological innovation. Consistently manages to place itself at the forefront of many key discoveries. Very good and open communication with all employees. The companies strategic direction, key objectives, and financial performance is widely communicated and understood by all employees. Products reach millions of people globally and have real impact on peoples lives.

    Cons

    Small company town not for everyone. Company performance very cyclical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the practice of open communication to all employees

    Pros

    Strong culture where the corporate values do appear be be worth something. People are respected here. Corning goes a long way to create an inclusive culture. It also attracts a lot of bright minds to R&D. The idea of patient money means that we can wait for research to bear fruit. We don't just chase the profits in the current quarter. The small town community where the HQ is can be a big plus for people because it's safe, housing is affordable, and the schools are pretty good.

    Cons

    The location of the HQ in upstate NY is isolated. The mall sucks and there aren't as many cool restaurants. High property taxes in NY are also alarming. If you don't have an Ivy League MBA it's hard to get opportunities for certain jobs. Scientists without PhDs also sometimes don't feel listened to. So there is some academic snobbery here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop our competency in strategic marketing.
