    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with all your friends as planning is really young. Merchants care about training down and raising future buyers. Most of the AVPs and VPs have been with the company for 15-20+ years so there are a lot of people you can learn so much from.

    Cons

    Yearly pay raises are so small you don’t notice a difference. There is no work life balance, you work 730am-630pm most nights. If you want to truly be a buyer it realistically takes 5+ years to get promoted into that (1 yr as analyst, 1yr senior analyst, 1 yr associate planner, 2 years planning manager). If buying is your career path I would use this company as a stepping stone to get the retail background and then move on when it’s taking too long to move up. Company is also super political- I leave work crying most of the time. Turn over within the planning departments is very high.

    Advice to Management

    Provide perks and incentives to employees who are already a part of the company, not just perks and incentives for new hires. For example, this year all new employees started off with 3 weeks vacation as a new perk. However, employees who have been with the company 2+ years and already have 3 weeks, what should they get? Need to keep older employees motivated too.
