    Pros

    Great Culture, Great People and nice campus in Marlborough. Open and closed work spaces.

    Cons

    Internal politics especially in the Indian dominated IT area slows company progress. I think the good people leave.

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lower mgmt team, however they struggled to do the right thing.

    Cons

    The list of cons is extensive... biggest con is the SLT. HR, and Upper management.

    Pay and benefits are dis-proportionate to industry... big time. No work/life balance
    Senior leadership team is out of touch with their staff. They falsify reports from surveys to see how well they are doing.

    Board member in a member of the TJX Board AND that of Cognizant. I'm sure there's some conflict of interest there.

    They've conducted skill surveys to determine who to lay off. They also had a mass layoff globally of 450+ Infrastructure and Operations associates, and outsourced all of their jobs to Cognizant. They instructed those that were not laid off to stop interacting with those that were.

     Cross training was via webex to India. Onboarding Cognizant staff has minimal training for critical systems in TJX

    The HR staff strong armed people to stay by holding their severances until TJX was ready to transition to Cognizant.

    Class action law suit is pending in UK.

    Advice to Management

    Be a human.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and acceptable benefits. That is all.

    Cons

    Terrible management, lazy HR team, long hours, no holidays off

    Advice to Management

    Developing an associate does not mean giving all of your work to that associate and telling them to figure it out. I was not supported my my manager at all.

    Pros

    Fun place to interact with customers and associates. Merchandise is always exciting to see because you do not know until its received. TJ Maxx is diverse in its hiring practices. They pay management well and above minimum wage for hourly associates.

    Cons

    Management works long hours. TJ does not hire a lot of full time associates. Early morning and late evening hours. Stores are not treated the same within a district/region.

    Advice to Management

    Associates are you greatest asset. Hire associates that reflect your clientele. Nothing worst then being waited on by an unkempt appearance.

    TJX owns TJMaxx, Marshall, HomeGoods, etc. It is a good company.

    The IT department is laying people off now as most of the IT jobs will go to India.
