    I have been working at Corning full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Learning about safety in the workforce. Opportunities there if you ignore the management attitudes and apply yourself.

    Cons

    Extremely high overtime that is mandatory. No respect from management with your concerns and ideas. This is the closest environment to Animal Farm that I have ever experienced. 12 hour rotating shifts are difficult with the high overtime. Management teams need more people skills and most need to step down. There is a lot of dead weight at the top that just keep protecting their own. Clean house, Wendell.

    Advice to Management

    Try the 12 hour shifts with all the forced overtime and see what the ones who actually work are experiencing. You will change your attitudes quickly. Fix the problems and stop passing the buck!

    I have been working at Corning as a contractor

    Pros

    I have bee with Corning, Inc. as a contractor for 2 1/2 years now and I have to say it may be the best job I have had in my 10 year career. There is so much opportunity to learn, grow and truly challenge yourself. The company is extremely innovative and its really exciting to be a part of that.

    Cons

    No real challenges - I have a great work life balance, very happy. Some times response time is a bit low because with all large companies there are many checks and balances.
