Pros

Leading edge technology and exciting markets

Cons

Upstate NY locations is a drag.

Advice to Management

Take a little more risk. Company became too risk averse after telecom bust. The risks the company took during telecom boom were not well understood by top management and has left the company in less risk taking mentality.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to engage in shaping the future of the company and contributing to it's success. Team oriented atmosphere allows people to tackle tough problems and get recognized for their talents.

    Cons

    If you are not a very self driven and focused individual you can flounder at Corning. There is not a strong leadership training process or "leadership factory" you can enter in to that will propell someone into leadership roles. Corning is a very autonomous organization so you have to market your ideas across the organization, which can be time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the long term future of the company and not fall in to the trap of other Fortune 500 companies, that manage to stock price and industry analysts.

    Pros

    CI is a very balanced company to work for in both lean and fat times with regard to work-life balance. They are positioned well through market needs and legislative dictate for their existing products, and spends enormous monetary and personnel capital on innovation and growth.

    Cons

    It is a plus for me, but many of their locations, including the world headquarters and Corning-Valley manufacturing sites, are in more remote locations. So, if a big-city location is your preference, you may not be satisfied. With that said, they invest HEAVILLY in local culture, arts, and education, and are building continuously new infrastructure to improve the local area.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on course and tack. You are doing fine and making sound decisions to weather the current global economic slowdown.
