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

    Pros

    They are truly pro-associate. They care about the the staff. They invest a lot into the people who want to stay and turn it into a career.

    Cons

    There’s really no a lot of cons. It’s all about what you want out of it!

    Terrible environment at California Buying Office. Sr. Leadership do not care for employees and most senior leader is quite rude when interacting. Would not recommend working here at all.

    Pros

    Stable company, good health benefits

    Cons

    Bullies have become the leaders, Nepotism abounds! If you have someone in your corner you can do nothing wrong. Culture sadly has changed for the worse. If you are kind, caring, have a caring personality stay away.

    Advice to Management

    You have to pay attention to what’s happening in your middle ranks. Bullies are destroying your “blue”team.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Competitive Pay - Okay Holiday/Insurance compensation -Summer Friday’s -Very relaxed schedule (barely 9-5 more like 9:30 to 4:45 plus an hour of lunch on the clock)

    Cons

    To put it inarticulately the place just straight up STINKS. If you’re not someone in your mid 40s whose job is the 3rd or 4th priority this place is not for you. Anyone who operates below VP level is subject to constant chaos. Very little training/on boarding for new hires and established employees. Almost no structure team by team, let alone company wide, on how to intake projects/work through projects/interact with business etc. Very strong “old boys” elbow bumping legacy type of culture which makes getting work done hard and generally unpleasant. No managers under 40 - no pipeline for new hires or any young employees to advance in their roles let alone to manager level. Despite great benefits company culture, or lack of, is so stress inducing that it’s not worth it. Better jobs with just as much to offer with the job market being so hot.

    Advice to Management

    I would say clean house but that’s obviously not how it’s done here or anywhere for that matter. About half of the force is contracted just call a spade a spade and contract the rest of the group and save the people the misery of realizing they chose the wrong job offer and have to look for a new one (but hey at least there’s a lot of vacation to use for interviewing ;) )

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, security, and I worked with an amazing team. Work/life balance is unparalleled and I always felt challenged.

    Cons

    The pay is on the lower end of other companies in the Boston area. I had an amazing team, however, sometimes the company culture could get catty. Senior management could do better to improve culture and opportunities to grow.
