Corning has great pay and overall the best health insurance that you can find in North Carolina. The people are nice, but the work schedule is (by personal opinion) not that good.
Pros

Workload
General Accountant (Current Employee) –  Corning, NYFebruary 8, 2017
Can be stressful at times but also can be very quiet. Sadly this job isn't very steady. You can either be very slow and the day takes forever. You can also be crazy busy.
Pros
Breaks
Cons
fast paced

Unless you are jobless, stay away
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYJanuary 24, 2017
Typical workload is around 60hrs/week and you are never compensated for that. Management looks down on people. Getting yelled at is ordinary thing in a typical day.
People are generally nice, so that's a plus.
Compensation is below average, and raises are rarely more than 2%.
Location is a problem for me cos it's far away from the city up in upstate NY. If you like nature, hiking etc. it's a good place. If you are a city person, stay away. One positive is monthly expenses are low.
Pros
People are nice in general
Cons
Poor compensation, limited career advancement, location

People no longer matter
ITSD Storage Administrator - Sr. Analyst (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYJanuary 13, 2017
I spent 15 years working for Corning and when I first started the company culture was all about taking care of its people. And over the course of my career Corning experienced a drastic downturn with its culture in that it no longer could afford to take care of its people. Generic job titles allow HR to underpay their employees is the game there.
Pros
Short commute
Cons
Politics and good ole boys club rules there

I held many positions and all had their good points and bad points
Analyst, Supervisor, Programmer (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYJanuary 12, 2017
I worked at 2 different consumer product plants and eventually at the corporate data center. At the plant level you were given a lot of responsibility and really felt like you were doing something important.
At the corporate level the individuality and productivity were not high on the priority list. You were just there to do a job.
Pros
Well paid, advanced thru the system; at the plant it was the best job
Cons
A change in the IT management festered unrest and huge layoffs

Poor place to work for
Dry Blend Process Area Owner (Current Employee) –  Painted Post, NYJanuary 8, 2017
The management staff at Kraft Foods is poor at best with very limit visibility to future proofing the business. There were many instances where management changed its vision that caused confusion within each year. Not properly managing resources was another problematic situation which also caused a lot of quality issues. The lower level workers and mid level managers grew very frustrated with unbalanced work hours and very limited incentives for success milestones.
Pros
pays the bills
Cons
everything else
