Featured Review

Former Employee - Manufacturing Technician II

I worked at Corning full-time

Pros

-Benefits are great -Ability to give coworkers money at Corning's expense for a job well done. (ex. $15 - $250) -Able to receive discounts on insurance for completing annual assessments. -Plenty... of leadership opportunities.

Cons

-Overtime incredibly high (at least in my department) -Putting production deadlines over employee safety. (Very understaffed, but having to run all equipment even if it means not getting a break for... 12 hours.) -When expressing concerns of employees' wellbeing and workload, the response was "we have deadlines that need to be met" -People hired for roles that they did not apply for, but were asked to interview anyways.

Advice to Management

We understand that business deadlines are highly important, but the wellbeing of your employees is far more important.
