    I have been working at TJX Companies (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good work / life balance - Semi flexible work hours - competitive salary - not super competitive environment - nice new gym at the home office for very cheap monthly fee.

    Cons

    - stakeholders are still trying to figure things out and make seemingly emotional decisions that create more work for lower level employees. - many teams that should be working together just aren't, which also creates frustration and more work. - stakeholders hold, and exercise, ultimate control over the most minute details of projects and their opinions change depending on the mood their in. - it makes life much easier to just go along with stakeholders opinions even if what they're asking you to do doesn't make any sense. Questioning the status quo is useless and can even be met with being reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more frequently with your teams what is going on in the bigger picture and also what things may be going on at the stakeholders level that will affect the teams every day workflow.

    Pros

    Positive encouraging atmosphere with plenty of room for growth if the desire is shown and you work hard to be promoted.

    Cons

    You may relocate between stores however the corporate head quarters is only located in Massachusetts therefore you cannot relocate anywhere else in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Management has appreciated and welcomed feedback at TJX and it is important they never forget the benefits of an open door policy.

    Pros

    Everyone is relationship oriented at TJX. The culture is amazing and it's not surprising the average tenure is 18 years!

    Pros

    Benefits, work schedule, flex time, work from home, industry leader.

    Cons

    Hardly any turnover, so slow advancement. It is political, and the "diversity" is something that is kind of forced on you.

    Advice to Management

    By celebrating certain alternative groups, you kinda alienate the mainstream. keep it non-political.

    Pros

    The discount and first grabs on merchandise if I was lucky enough to see it in the stock room before it left the floor. Flexible schedule, nice people to work with/for.

    Cons

    Low paying and unsatisfying work. No vacation time and the health benefits were not good at all. Worst part is I spent most of my paycheck there because of all the great finds!
