Pros

Corning treats their employees well. The pace of work is more relaxed than at other companies, and work/life balance was terrific. From my experience and from what I have heard around the company, Corning genuinely treats their employees well.

Cons

Corning, NY isn't exactly the most exciting place to be. If you're not into the outdoors, there isn't much to do. The town may be a great place to raise a family, but it's tough for singles looking to meet someone.

Advice to Management

The recruiting program needs some revamping. There is no formal recruiting process for universities, and leadership programs for college grads are a bit lacking.

    Pros

    Corning values innovation which makes it an interesting place to work, there's always something new. Corning benefits are at least competitive with other companies. If you like a small town/rural environment, Corning is a nice place to be.

    Cons

    If you do not like living in a small town/rural environment, Corning can be a tough place. Like many other companies, advancement at Corning seems to depend at least as much on politics as it does on achievement. Corning's emphasis on diversity seems at times to lead it to advance people before they are ready.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be recognized for how "diverse" and "tolerant" you are and try developing a culture that isn't quite so polite and is more willing to question things.
