    I have been working at Corning full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Time-off is plentiful after your first five years.

    Cons

    Leadership communications at the upper level is great; but, mid and lower levels seem to fail to pass on critical information. Company tries to be progressive, but fails short as they take 10 year old ideas and implement them as fresh and new.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership team needs to have impromptu sit downs at the worker levels. Swing by and sit down in a cube and start a dialogue to get the pulse of the company.
