    Pros

    Great company. They work around a college schedule, and whatever else life throws your way.

    Cons

    For a struggling college student, not being able to get full time, I couldn't afford to go to school with the amount of hours I was given.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and be there for your employees. Life happens and things get hard. Being a little more emotionally connected, or sympathetic aND have good communication about an employees helpful options would do some good.

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Covered parking garage, convenient to 495, onsite ATM and Starbucks coffee, reasonable cost for gym and cafe. The company continues to make money selling cheap 3rd world clothing that US consumer culture is fooled into buying again and again. Growth is averaging a steady 4% per year - beware potential backlash against TJX if a "made in America" mindset takes hold in current political environment.

    Cons

    Strategy in place to reduce IT costs by reducing layers of management and moving to Plan, Build, Run model recommended by Deloitte and recently implemented. Many changes in reporting relationships have left a large number of people unclear on what their role is and therefore just wasting time on the internet all day. Very dated IT processes and tools. Entrenched Sr. Management has little idea how to move IT in... the right direction. Some nepotism has resulted in young people being promoted beyond their capabilities or experience. Culture does not reward achievement but relationships with the right Sr.management. HR in IT has been tasked with ongoing Performance Management which manifests itself in continuous small layoffs, often selecting the best people for layoff because they somehow don't fit the byzantine TJX culture of "don't mess with the model". Yet everyone knows the model in IT Is broken. Many, many unhappy people who have been demoted under the new Plan, Build, Run model from management positions to individual contributors. Consultants and contractor: full time employee ratio is moving close to 60%:40% - you should be wary of being replaced by a consultant from Wipro, Collaborative, Accenture, Deloitte, Cognizant, JVT or any of the one dozen or so approved contracting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Culture in IT needs to change. People with nothing to do are draining the energy from folks overwhelmed with responsibilities. New CIO should consider overhauling the Sr. Management in IT - starting with HR.

    I have been working at TJX Companies part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's pretty easy to get hired. Flexible hours. Minimal training is needed.

    Cons

    Not enough hours to work, even if you are full time (about 30 hrs for full time workers and 22 for part time). Only 10% discount for employees. Company cuts hours right after holidays. Most employees are college students and company do not give any information on management positions for upward mobility. Most customers are rude and the work is too demanding and tiring for $9 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Make information available to associates so that they can get hired for management positions after school. Hire employees based on the hours available. Provide proper training for associates so they can have a career in the company, because it's pointless to train people for them to leave to other companies to be hired.

    I worked at TJX Companies for less than a year

    Pros

    Never need to work over time, decent cafe and eating area, free parking and shuttles, decent hourly rate and benefits to full time employees. Some fun yearly events

    Cons

    No room for advancement without someone else leaving. That means that you'll stay a contractor with no benefits until a position is opened which could be months or years. Typical issues of large corporations with bottom line priorities.

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

    Pros

    busy department, loved it. Needed full time work for my living expenses at home. Need more work or a large increase in pay.

    Advice to Management

    none, my managers were awesome, and always took time to meet with me on any of my concerns for the store and increase in sales.

    I have been working at TJX Companies

    Pros

    The people, associates and customers, the opportunity to see everything first hand and the discount only 10%, but more than a few times a year 20% is offered. Benefits are a plus if your full time, 401k with company match.

    Cons

    The people, associates and customers, the discount is only 10%, but probably could be 20% all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of great associates when you have them within the company already, be consistent and communicate more.
