A great company to work for
permanent cleaner (Current Employee) –  Corning, NYSeptember 20, 2018
I love my job and I work for a good company with good standing in our community and around the world. There are other plants located in other states and countries, so the possibility is endless as far as where you are restricted to for living.

Corning is a joke
Sheet glass operator (Former Employee) –  Harrodsburg, KYSeptember 20, 2018
Corning is no place to work, I would definitely NOT recommend it. They tell you you will work 12 hours a day, wrong, sometimes 16 or more and you dont have a choice. If you miss anymore than 4 days per year they will fire you or if you make any tiny mistake they will fire you, no questions asked and your so called union will NOT fight for you.
Pros
Money and benefits
Cons
Hr, management, medical, hours, work culture

Good benefits and pay but work hours not so great.
Technical Support Technician (Current Employee) –  Midland, NCSeptember 16, 2018
Corning works a rotating 12 hour shift rotation. There is a lot of mandatory overtime. You know your schedule a year in advance but you can't schedule vacation or plans on your days off because you dont know what overtime may come up.
Pros
Benefits and pay
Cons
Rotating 12 hour shifts

great place to work
Trouble Shooting Technician (Former Employee) –  Midland, NCSeptember 2, 2018
Rotating shifts (Day, Night, weekends) 12 hour days, focused on monthly production and safety. Management provides guidance and training, they leave everyday activities to the lead who works a position on the floor alongside everyone else. The hardest part of the day is near end of shift, clean up and post equipment inspection.
Pros
Great Place to work, great culture
Cons
Night Shift work

Not a great company
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYSeptember 1, 2018
The current culture is all driven by old age management style. The company needs to reinvent if they want to compete with the technology company. The location is very poor.

Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) –  Hickory, NCAugust 13, 2018
A typical day at work is setting the line up, making sure everything is in tact so the line can run a good cable. I've learned how to set up a line and operate as well while just being a temp. Management is it rough the edges as supervisor and coordinator hoover over their employees like children. The workplace is sometimes messy as a lot of people look to get you fired. The hardest part about the job is trying not to fall asleep. The most enjoyable part is the days off.
Pros
Days off
Cons
No breaks, Treated like a kid, supervisor

it was a job. they never took employees into consideration when making business considerations..

Company went downhill after dot com crash and Lean Engineers came in. No Christmas parties, no company picnics. Started worry about employees clocking in 2 minutes too early.
Pros
good employees to work with
Cons
rarely promoted from within, started to try to hire from outside the US for "equality"

Project Leader (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYJuly 8, 2018
Corning's technology is truly mind-boggling.
They have changed the world. Corning actually owned
the patent for the light bulb.

They invented fiber optics.
They invented the catalytic converter.
Now they have Gorilla Glass, used on the iPhone.

Work is challenging but rewarding. It is a fortune 500 company in a small upstate town. I am glad to have worked there but promotions are very difficult to get.

Sr. Application Engineer (Current Employee) –  Hickory, SC 28061June 15, 2018
Very secure working environment. The decision making is a slow process. Colleagues are polite and helpful. Vertical management is strong, but inter-department collaboration is not easy due to different responsibilities and working goals.
