I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Decent Salary, Good Bonuses & Stock Options for Managers & above. Corporate Office has great cafeteria. Parking can be difficult. Fitness center small. Childcare on site. Overall a solid profitable company to work for with quality talented management.

Cons

Very Limited opportunities to advance if you are a Manager unless you work in Finance or Merchandising. If you work in Logistics forget about career advancement. Promotions non-existent for deserving Managers in this area. No Career progression path or development. Organizational reporting chart doesn't make a whole lot of sense either.

Advice to Management

Develop and Promote your middle management. This is the key to future success of your company. Publishing Blue sheets with promotions only for senior executives damages morale within the organization. Employees appreciate recognition and promotions for their dedication & hard work, its not always about salary or bringing in someone from the outside.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many 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

    Cons

    Not 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 Management

    It 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,
