Good retail company, but very behind the times in technologies.

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Westborough, MA

I worked at TJX Companies full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe company is wonderfully successful.

ConsA lot of legacy systems and applications make working in IT a challenge. Not flexible on hours or work environments... very much a 9-5, must be in the office, etc.

Massive outsourcing of IT - Do not apply if you are an American

Technical Analyst (Current Employee)
Westborough, MA

I have been working at TJX Companies full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBenefits are good if you are an associate however health insurance offered by the company is not the best.

ConsThe company is in the midst of a massive outsourcing of the IT departments. Any new employee that walks through the door in the IT office is not an American, English spoken by them is hard to understand due to their accent. These contractors all hang out in cliques, speak in their own language around those who don't understand it and it makes for a hostile working environment because of these barriers. Senior management could care less I suspect since its saving them money from actually hiring Americans.

There is a sense of low morale everywhere in the IT office
Department managers are not experienced enough to know what their associates are dealing with on a day to day basis

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to what is going on in the IT sector of the company, there will be more talented people leaving in the near future.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

American IT Professionals Need Not Apply

Not Worth Mentioning, Does Not Fit Job Reality (Current Employee)
Westborough, MA

I have been working at TJX Companies full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMany good people to work with,
But, this is the place to be,
...If you want to have no feelings of accomplishment
...If you are single and like to pick up the slack of people with kids
...If you like to work less than 40 hours as a salaried professional
...If you enjoy hiding behind process to do nothing and get paid for it
...If pointing fingers at others when things go wrong is your thing

ConsNot a merit-based organization; little reward for true productivity
IT Management infused with too many individuals more interested in their personal gain than solving problems and creating high-performing teams
Huge and growing chasm between management and true contributors
Very negative environment, IT management is blissfully ignorant of the discontent (or simply does not care)

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is only a matter of time before the business quantifies how little IT service they now get to the costs they incur. Instead of one-size-fits-all process, use more intelligence in focusing on problems. End the matrix experiment, get back to cohesive teams that produce high-quality at less cost. Understand the true cost of all this outsourcing.... lower hourly rate and fixed managed service contracts do not equal reduced cost and better quality,

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
