    I have been working at COTG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    COTG really cares about their employees. I have been working here for just under a year now and I cannot imagine being anywhere else. Not only does COTG look to their employee's opinions, they have very open communication throughout the organization, and really care about how the workers feel working every day. Morale is extremely high, especially due in part to the Employee Committee. This group of dedicated individuals strive to create fun and engaging events for the entire company to boost morale, interact with other departments and overall just have a good time at work. On top of that, the committee, and COTG by association, raise money every year to donate to amazing programs such as "Operation Christmas."

    Cons

    The only downside for me, personally, is my long commute every morning. I travel from the south suburbs of Chicago and it's about 45 minutes to an hour each way. However, that being said, being able to get past the long commute should show how much working for COTG makes up for that.

    I worked at COTG full-time

    Pros

    Used to be an enjoyable workplace

    Cons

    No internal support, let go of a lot of great long time employees (sales and support), anxiously waiting to see who gets let go of each week(am I next?), lots of turnover, terrible leadership with no direction, furloughed employees who didn’t get let go, made big cuts to everything, let go of president, weekly changes in expectations (change the way they want the same data week to week), doesn’t support customers for fundraisers/events, no more golf outings for customers/trip incentives for sales reps, commission structure is poor, runs business with old fashioned model (must wear suit and tie every day), health benefits are terrible, no customer support because everyone is gone...should I go on? Do not work here or do business with them unless they make major changes!

    I worked at COTG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This was a great place to work, it was one big family. Loved the employee committee and the office participation for Halloween and Christmas decorating. Going to work everyday wasn’t an challenge or a dread. Management is great and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Aside from being affiliated with Xerox and having HCL come in, there were no cons to speak of.

    They are very flexible and provide extensive training to have their employees feel comfortable and well prepared to do their job efficiently

    I worked at COTG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This WAS such a wonderful place to work - it is all over now because all of the jobs are being OUTSOURCED TO INDIA by HCL. There is nothing positive about this place to report any longer and that is why so many people like me left for other companies.

    Cons

    Where to start? HCL and Xerox management lying to us for months when we all know our jobs were being outsourced to India. Benefits were terrible. 401K match slashed, then changed to avoid them making any contributions to employees at all for 2019. Merit increases FROZEN. Everyone jumping ship leaving more work for the poor people who remain. Morale at an all time low- the environment that was once wonderful is now like a morgue.
