      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Corning full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      11 paid holidays (the best I have seen) 3 weeks vacation after 3 years which is pretty great in comparison to others Pay is pretty competitive for the area.

      Cons

      Development is a joke unfortunately. No matter how hard you work, you are not promoted based on skill or knowledge, when tour time in a role is over (usually 2 years or more) you can move on to a higher role if current manager allows it. No reason to work hard if all will be rewarded the same. Hiring outside recruited with little to no experience and placing them at higher roles and not promoting from within. Implementing...

      Advice to Management

      Give credit where credit is due. Actually develop your employees. It shouldn’t take 3 years for anyone to get promoted. Communicate effectively with employees. One employee shouldn’t be doing multiple jobs so that work life balance is non existence.

      I worked at Corning full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Highly focused, science based company with great products and great people. Great pay and health benefits, including nice reimbursement for gym memberships Great bonus program Surrounding area is beautiful (Finger Lakes, wine country, Ithaca, and Letchworth Park (NY Grand Canyon).

      Cons

      Small town, can be a little parochial Due to being a one company town, job opportunities are limited, especially for trailing spouses and children. The performance review process was unorganized and not very helpful; seemed somewhat arbitrary

      Advice to Management

      Keep focusing on bottom line results, but don't lose focus on your most important asset, your people.
