    Pros

    Fortune 500 company in several cutting edge business segments. Big focus on getting good people and letting them grow. People move around often within company into new roles. Good products, good people, good work. Triple play.

    Cons

    Small town in rural region; few other major employers and thus limited opportunities for spouse. Company leans towards caution/is relatively conservative.

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

    Pros

    Group management was quite good. While human , they tried to strike a balance between company needs and employee needs. Group dynamics were very well managed and I really felt to be part of the team even as a contract worker.

    Cons

    Hr needs some work but to be fair so do most big companies. Although there were some shady goings on, I can also say I always felt safe to speak my mind. As is the case in most companies currently there is a perception that employees are interchangeable so a new one at lower pay is always as good as the current one if they have same qualifications. What isn't taken into consideration is the amount of efficiency gained while working there. As a result the individual group managers take a performance hit when people are replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let accountants run your company, while giving group managers more hiring power may slightly increase payroll , the gain in productivity will be well worth it.
