    Pros

    Corning is a company that not only spouts values but lives them. Corning leadership promotes valuing the individual. There are many diversity councils at Corning which support all nationalities and life styles. In addition, Corning supports family-worklife balance. Corning is a true believer in supporting the community and promotes this way of life in the workplace as well. You'll find solid benefits at Corning. Corning promotes the growth of its employees through education and on-the-job training. At Corning, Integrity truly is the bottom line. Great place to work!

    Cons

    The only negative I have found is over the years the benefits and perks have dwindled significantly.

    Advice to Management

    Before reducing a benefit, rethink it! Find another way to save money by not taking it away from the employees' benefits.

    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!
