Good Place to work, but with some flaws

I worked at Corning

Pros

Compensation was ok, annual merit increases were generally along inflationary lines, and goalsharing bonus in Feb. was nice. Informal technical training sessions were frequent at Sullivan Park, which were really nice to attend. Corporate technical library is second-to-none!

Cons

Groups sometimes operate in "silos" and moving from one group to another (or worse another division) was difficult. Long hours at times depending on projects without much recognition afterwards for the sacrifice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Top management is doing the right thing, but middle management should keep employee's career development and promotion paths more in focus.

    Pros

    Small town culture if you like associating with narrow minded people.

    Cons

    people at the whole company are very conservative. it is not a good place to work for a motivated, innovative professional. They care more of the format and waste a lot of time. Too much politics, too bureaucratic, and old fashion management. The town is very boring. You'll love there if you're a boring person who doesn't want to have a life outside work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster an inclusive, open-minded, progressive culture. Move away from this boring little town.

    Like everywhere else favoritism has developed and matured.

    Pros

    Salaries and benefits are OK. Once in a while you get in interesting project to work on.

    Cons

    If you are not a minority of some kind, your professional growth will be no existent, because you do not help in meeting diversity numbers required by the government.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your diversity programs are only working for African American and may be women.
