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

    Pros

    Financially solid - some genuinely nice people work at TJX.

    Cons

    Nice people are not necessarily capable or talented. Lots of mediocre talent who dont know they are because they have been there so long it is all they know. Some people manage through fear and gossip so people are pitted against each other. Horrible vacation policy and low 401(k) match.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being afraid of change. Your unwilingness to try new things says alot about your fear and insecurity.

    Pros

    If you have mangers with the skills to manage, work is rewarding and fulfilling and shows through even to customer satisfaction and interest in the store.

    Cons

    When managers are devoid of these skills and believe they are a combination of Drill Sergeant and Efficiency Expert and manage by the mottos "Because I can" and "That's the way it is" nobody benefits and all start down a spiral of not caring.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be promoted based on their skill sets, not their longevity with the company. Likewise employees who don't wish to be promoted should not be treated as second class employees even to the point they are denied the legal use of their benefits such as using "Personal time off" hours when not able to get to work because of a snow blizzard that initiated a state of emergency of the county and being told it need to be scheduled prior to the event and that they need to maintain "open availability" .
