    I have been working at TJX Companies

    Pros

    With no true competition in the market, you really can't find better job security elsewhere. They remain true to their core values within every aspect of the corporation, making it easy to believe in and feel good about the work your doing/what you are selling.

    Cons

    True corporation, making it very difficult and time consuming for any changes to be fully implemented. Further, salaries reflect their off-price mentality...

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

    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.

    Current Employee - Second Year in Framingham, MA

    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    VERY outdated systems.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

    Pros

    positive atmposhere and casual dress code

    Cons

    little growth for Merchandise Assistants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring assistants out of of college because in a year or two they will want more. TJX is unwilling to give them that.
