Corning offers a very competitive wage and an excellent benefits package to compliment the satisfaction that you are making a positive difference for generations to come.

    The shop I work in is controlled by the union which tends to breed unmotivated workmanship. Additionally the seven day swing shift is a great disadvantage.

    I worked at Corning as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable, smart folks, pleasant to work for. I am happy I had the opportunity to come in as a consultant and support the efforts to streamline some processes.

    Cons

    Some stagnation, apart from new product development/engineering. I had a limited opportunity to view it, but found some employees a little bothered by the lack of mobility within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Link the support services better with the engineering and scientific divisions and share strategic directions and new product plans to develop a sense of camaraderie among employees from all departments.
