    Pros

    employees are all friendly and nice to work with,

    Cons

    not very much room for promotions because everyone stays at company and so you cant really move up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    open more stores so that other employee have chance to promote. It is a very good company to work for but because everyone stays there really is no chance to promote because they are all staying.

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time

    Pros

    everyone seems nice, lots of smiling and chit chat - it feels very much like a high school hallway of girls
    Decent communication between individual departments
    the company is really invested in helping their employees grow
    if you survive 5 years in TJX, you will be there until you die in TJX.

    Cons

    They reward time spent in the company, not actual skill or job performance
    VERY outdated systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carol and upper managment seem to be doing a great job. The P&A team and buyers do what they can and everyone in between is there because they have been in the company for 20 years, not because they are smart.

    A lot of employees are not necessarily of top not education or grades. They kind of just accept anyone who is moldable enough where they can convince them to stay forever

    I have been working at TJX Companies as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As a buying intern at TJX, you have the rare opportunity to shadow top buyers in the market and in the office. Full access to vendor relations, decision making, and business analysis is given to interns. Interns spend most of their time shadowing and gradually learn the skills required to perform tasks on their own. Compensation is above market standard for the retail industry.

    Cons

    Interns are placed in different departments, which can result in different experiences, some more positive than others. Hourly pay terms are difficult when shadowing salaried buyers.
