it was a job. they never took employees into consideration when making business considerations..
Manufacturing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Hickory, NCJuly 20, 2018
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.

Company grows slow but steadily
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.

Best Job I Ever Had
Sr. Research Scientist (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYMay 29, 2018
Corning is like going to Oz or in a real Disney Land. Opportunities to learn, create, travel and make a difference in the world abound. People are like family. Leadership generally leaves you alone.
Pros
Anything you can think of it is here!
Cons
Random layoffs with no recalls.
