A great challenging and rewarding place to work
SALES ENGINEER (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 22, 2014
Pros: great opportunity to grow and earn. travel
Cons: car allowance was a little substandard
Through direct sales identified, pursued and maximized opportunities in the greater Chicago area related to the fiber optic and structured cable business in enterprise network market. I was also responsible for training contractors, consultants and large end users the technical aspects of fiber optic cable, data center components and test equipment.

I – more... learned to never assume the completion would stop trying to win business away from you. Fortunately, I had coworkers in the engineering services department that assisted me in providing solutions to my customer base that, in most cases, out performed my completion, kept my customers loyal and helped me win new customers. In addition, using my expertise and engineering resources efficiently help me win business.

Hardest part of the job was managing all the great technologies. Plus, I also had the state of Indiana and southern Illinois as my territory.

The most enjoyable part of the job was growing the business, traveling and maintaining relationships with existing customers meeting new ones. I also enjoyed solving problems for customers and being part of a world class leader in fiber optic products. – less

Customer Service/Marketing/ Staffing Consultant (Former Employee), Corning, NYAugust 16, 2014
As someone who has worked in the corporate recruiting world and married to a corporate recruiter of Fortune 500 companies, this is not very professional. I am seeking new employment, not looking to fondly reminisce about past employers.

Group 1 Operator (Former Employee), Oneonta, NYAugust 14, 2014
Pros: good benefits, free coffee and popcorn
Cons: being mandated on your days off
You may work 8-12 hour shifts depending on the demands for our products. I learned how to handle various machines and general operations of the machines, packaging products, inspecting products. Enjoyed working with my co-workers worked very well as a team member. The hardest part of the job was not knowing if you were working an 8 or 12 hour shift. – more... Being mandated to work regardless of what you had planned for your days off and missing time with your family and friends. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendships I built with my co-workers. – less

Worst company ever worked for
Sr. Process Engineer (Former Employee), Corning, NYJuly 16, 2014
Pros: lots of glitz and glamour
Cons: very little substance
It may be a good company for dual candidates, diversity candidates but definitely not for mid-career hires. Found it to be not doing what they preach on a daily basis. Poor management, utter lack of communication and extremely click-y company. One has to know people inside to be able to weather storms that comes once every three years-head count reductions. – more... Very little chance to prove ones intellectual abilities as folks are moving project to project all the time. Due to lack of any in-depth subject matter expertise often it is difficult to get the next job if one is booted out of Corning. – less

Pros: staff nurses were great
Cons: horrible management team do not care about employee's
Do not recommend going there! New DON is not for the employee's! She is mean and miserable. Does not listen and will fire you for no reason! I was in management while I was there the co-workers loved me, as I would help out. The DON on the other hand did not and refused to!
