I worked at Corning full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

good health benefit, good for new graduate to have some industry experience, after that, it's such a small town without any other opportunities.

Cons

lack of career growth, upper management is not willing to invest time and efforts in your professional growth. Not willing to provide trainings to expand your skillsets. No clear picture of where division go. If economy is not good, individual contributors are first ones to let-go, not decision-maker !

Advice to Management

should have a clear picture where division goes and what they do, do not wait around expect magic happens to research and make money. research and business is somewhat disconnected, you should let business drives research not research drives business. Individual contributors are ones who should be valued, often times, decision makers are ones who made the wrong decision of doing which projects, that were not making money for company. No clear sense of planning in research. please put the right leader (who have knowledge and quality) in the right place.

    Pros

    Company values are truly important, people are valued; company grows thru innovation and minor acquisitions; HQ located in the beautiful middle of nowhere; company has clear long term prospects and is constantly thinking about the future;...

    Cons

    Living in New York State is very expensive (especialy real estate taxes)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and give more chance to young, energized people.
