      Pros

      Very friendly and informative exchanges with both the recruiter and staff during the on-boarding process. Everyone has been so friendly and kind. I see where the mutual respect is very present regardless of positions held. It's awesome to see that! Good work culture that ties to company values. Competitive compensation. Great environment for growth and development. Work life balance.

      Cons

      Locations are full of windows, but it's not being taken advantage of. Exposure to natural light is beneficial in so many ways including productivity, moods, etc.

      Underperformers get to remain in positions longer than they should. It is a struggle for Corning to recast or let people go. Salaries tend to be lower than market.

      Pros

      - Work life balance - Scope for fundamental and applied research - Innovative, cutting edge projects - Smart co-workers - Good work culture tying to Corning values

      Cons

      - Although close to Rochester and Ithaca, some may find the location to be a bit remote. - Corning is the largest employer in this town. For a trailing spouse, employment opportunities might be hard to come by, if s/he isn't interested in working for Corning. Alternatively, there are many universities and colleges around if someone is interested in academia.
