    I worked at Corning Museum of Glass (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work load is very manageable. Many positions within the museum involve interaction with guests, educating and assisting them.

    Cons

    Many positions at this company are seasonal, The most guests visit during the summer months as opposed to the other seasons.

    I have been working at Corning Museum of Glass full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great employee morale, located in the beautiful finger lakes region, staff strive for excellence, and you are surrounded by thousands of pieces of amazing artwork. Depending on the position you are able to get to experience training and travel.

    Cons

    For this particular position, sometime late evenings and weekend hours are required, with no overtime, because it is a salary position.

  3. "Sales Associate"

    I worked at Corning Museum of Glass part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CMoG is a great company to work for as a part-time employee during peak season; shifts are given at regular hours and the duties given are fair.

    Cons

    An excess of tour groups are permitted access to the Glass Market at one time, creating a stressful environment for sales employees. Pay is mediocre and employees should be guaranteed a minimum amount of work hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire too many part-time employees during the summer, this leads to an insufficient amount of hours given all around.


  4. "Fun place to work"

    I worked at Corning Museum of Glass as a contractor

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with, interesting assignments and time to explore the museum. Pay was very good and they were flexible if I needed to leave early because of the weather.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was slow, would have like a little more responsibility but as a temp it is understandable why I didn't get any. There really isn't any cons to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job.

    Pros

    I got to meet lots of interesting visitors and artists, had access to all of the perks of Corning Inc. employees, and was presented with new opportunities to learn every day.

    Cons

    Horribly invasive managers. Left because my boss wanted to know everything about my personal life (who I was dating, my health, my family.) It was very uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Do not host one on one meetings for the sole purpose of gathering gossip.
