Good people to work with
Training Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYApril 19, 2016
Many opportunities to work there in a diverse company. Pay for the average worker was well above average pay. Good benefits but mostly 24/7 operations for the working class which meant swing shifts and 7 day schedules.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Terrible work schedules

General Accounting (Current Employee) –  Corning, NYApril 19, 2016
Enjoy working for Corning Inc. The hardest part of the job is there is no movement. Enjoyable part of the job is establishing relationships with your customers, this is satisfying, feeling valued and appreciated.

IT Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Corning, NYApril 18, 2016
I have worked at Corning Incorporated for over a year currently, within the IT Project Management Team as both a Project Manager and a Business Analyst. I was also an intern during the summer of 2014 in the Vendor Management group. I have a Master's Degree on Information Technology Information Systems Management form Marist College. During that time, I became proficient in Web Application and SaaS configuration, which I have used with multiple projects at Corning. In order to succeed as an IT Business Analyst, I have developed positive working relationships with all of the BA partners, the Project Managers, Quality Managers, Solution Architecture personnel, and the Engineers. As a result, I have become very proficient in reducing requirements, delivering successful measurements and managing phases through the project. The co-workers at Corning Incorporated are very accepting and the culture is that everyone that works at Corning is apart fop the family.

Great company with great people. Just a little behind the times. Manufactures leading edge technology in the optical communications sector but the internal culture does not match the forward thinking and development of innovative solutions.

Not Worth It
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Manassas, VAFebruary 3, 2016
You can jump through hoops and solve major problems, but a contractor rarely makes the jump to permanent employee. It is extremely frustrating, especially if you are more than qualified for your position (i.e. education level, experience, etc.) and work hard every day. If this is the case, the problems you solve will be credited to your supervisor or another permanent employee in your department, instead of you.

Depending on your manager, they will either:
1. Micromanage you.
2. Provide little to no guidance (because they have little to no knowledge of the performance of your job), and you must be driven enough to accomplish projects by deadline and figure things out for yourself.

Employee morale is low, even for permanent employees. It's extremely sad and is a reflection upon management and working conditions/salaries. To most, it is just a job that they must suffer through until they can go home for reprieve.
Also, some of the wrong people are permanent employees. For example, some like to use contractors to do their work for them while they sit at their desk texting, doing their nails, and reading cook books. Then, when the contractor completes their work for them, they slap their name on it and take credit.

To summarize: Working long hours for low pay while performing highly technical, scientific work; and your supervisor or permanent co-worker probably receives credit for your ideas and solutions.

Run far away or get out while you can.
Cons
Long hours, low pay, low morale, little to no career growth

Its a sad and bias place to work
Inspector/Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Midland, NCNovember 17, 2015
There is no room for growth and there is no room for errors. They are very bias about who they hire and fire.They need to have a public relation department set up for temps as well as the employee they do choice to hire in this company.
Pros
There is none
Cons
Everything is wrong about this company that is why they have a high turn over.

After 8 years, this is what I thought
Technical Support Technician (Former Employee) –  Midland, NCNovember 12, 2015
Decent place to work and raise a family off the wages. The commute to work was not that bad at all. The company has changed plant managers 4-5 times in eight years, so the culture is in an uproar, no consistency.
Pros
A chance to learn different things that other wise you would not have the chance.
Cons
Supervisors and Department Heads do not value the employee, Your talked down at and when you refuse to no longer except it, your labeled.

micromanagment
Quality Control Microbiologist (Current Employee) –  Manassas, VANovember 6, 2015
Severely micromanaged with no appreciation for the worker. The pay is also not enough for the amount of work that is given. No matter how hard you work it is never good enough. People are overworked, and weekends are surprisingly sprung on without any notice.
