Great place to intern. Good culture. Great bosses. Other interns are great. Was not a fit for me to work full time due to the HQ location being pretty remote, but I would highly recommend and there are locations all over the globe with Corning.
Pros
business expenses covered even as an intern
Cons
If you're at corporate HQ, it is very remote. No other cons

A decent place to work with great work and life balance. Type of project can be less exciting. Management is an old boys club, you need to click to advance and get picked.
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
Can be boring

The management was never on the same page and you end up having to double your work load because they don't communicate. Lots of drugs and alcohol being consumed either at work or before workers come in endangering other works. Care more about the product out put compared to the workers safety
Pros
Paid well
Cons

Corning is a good company to work for. Benefits are great, pay is decent and people overall are nice.I have witnessed success stories of people advancing really quick in the operations department, for engineers is a little harder to get promoted.
Pros
Multicultural environment Great Benefits, plenty of opportunities for advancement in the Operations department
Cons
From my experience it is hard to get promoted in the Engineering Department, average yearly salary raise is about 3%

Corning was the best team oriented environment I ever worked. The fairly new state of the art facility taught me valuable innovated ways of high speed manufacturing. Greatful for the opportunity to be part of the team during my contract of employment.
Pros
Team based, innovation, and great company.
Cons
Contract employment

I’ve worked for Corning Life Sciences for 4 years as a remote sales employee. Everyone at Corning is talented, supportive and friendly - overall great culture throughout the entire company. Compensation is fairly low and growth opportunities are limited.

When I first started employment there it was a friendly atmosphere . When management kept adding more and more overtime, people started getting frustrated and were just all out tired. More numbers were expected and there were some ppl that did least amount of effort making the ppl that actually did their job work three times harder. Some amazing coworkers there and some that love to start the drama. If it doesn’t concern you, it shouldn’t concern the whole plant. Rumor mill galore.

Overall the jobes they ask you to do are not hard and the tasks can be done on time (most of the time). But if you are in maintenance do not expect a lot of support or management of any kind on nights.
Pros
Good pay, benefits are great
Cons
No support

Absolut schlechter Arbeitsplatz . Schichtsystem vollkonti. Heißt im klartext sieben Tage arbeiten einen Tag frei. Miese vorgesetzte, zum Teil völlig inkompetent klappt was net war es einer der Untergebenen. Betriebsrat auch sehr fraglich wem er die Stange hält. Hätte noch mehr Kritik Punkte würde aber den Rahmen sprengen.

Corning is a very good place to work. It's not a place to expect the most excellent work-life balance possible, but there is a lot of money to be made if you want it.

Really enjoyed the work here, I had a great experience with the group I was working in. The only real drawback I experienced is the location, which is why I would hesitate to work here long term. I could however see it being nice for someone wanting to raise a family in a small community.
Pros
Welcoming environment, heavy investment in R&D
Cons
Location

I believe corning is a great place to work. While all normal manufacturing needs are required (overtime, consistent work schedule, 12 and 8 hour shifts), they try to help their people where possible and do nice things for their employees. Pay is on the high end for this area. Communication could be better but overall I would recommend others to work here.
Pros
Benefits, Paid Holidays, Break schedule, Overtime
Cons
Overtime (sometimes)

if you get a blue badge your treated like a second class citizen, the big wigs are rude and nasty and really have nothing to bring to the table but a piece of paper from Harvard or Yale. the contractors hired through CTG-Nesco-TEK systems-or any other placement company are paid just a smidge above minimum wage and crank out helpdesk tickets all day, most of the techs hired understand the technology very well but corning puts former HR and operations managers in charge of IT contractors and they really don't know the first thing about Information technology but they feel that they can counsel you on this subject so its the blind leading the blind. they also felt that it was a good idea to ship all the IT jobs over seas with the partnership they established with Wipro. So as an former information technology contractor i recommend that people who want to look out for their career avoid corning like the plague!
Pros
the commute
Cons
breaks snatched by management at will, incompetent leadership

The company has a lot to offer. Will meet good people and unprofessional people. There may be opportunities for a new position in the company, but you may be stuck where you got in.
Pros
Fortune 500 company
Cons
May get stuck in current role
