    I have been working at Corning full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent culture. Very diverse, lots of opportunities to collaborate with professionals from different departments with different scientific backgrounds, and can learn a lot. High quality work. People are generally nice and very professional. Facility is excellent, and the company cares employees into details including affording a very convenient office chair for optimized health. The Sullivan Park is very large with advanced lab equipment that you may not see in any universities, there is also a big library and you may access many online journals for free. Feel a great atmosphere to do R&D and bring innovation.

    Cons

    Some procedures could be slow as a large corp.

    Advice to Management

    Keep good work.

    I have been working at Corning full-time

    Pros

    -Pay Rate
    -Hours*
    -Entry Level Available
    -Work with people that want to be there and are invested in work

    Cons

    -The hours can be an obstacle for someone with a family or who wants a large amount of free time. That's why I've put it in Pros and Cons.
    -If you can't pass the Entry Level test to get hired on, you'd have to try again. It can be difficult for some people due to this.

    Pros

    Some great, smart people there. They offer a pension!

    Cons

    very, very slow to do anything. almost allergic to change. very strange corporate culture that really doesn't work if you've ever worked anywhere else. I suppose the good thing is that most people there never leave...
