    I worked at TJX Companies for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone at TJX is incredibly friendly and genuinely wants to set you up for success. They host multiple events for the interns and there is a great work life balance. They give meaningful projects that actually have an impact on the company and treat you like they would with any team member.

    Cons

    Sometimes team members would be travelling and there would be a lack of projects to do, but overall, it's a great internship program.

    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.

    Pros

    Culture and work life balance are strong. You can actually leave work behind when you go home. Overall, it was a great place to work.

    Cons

    Old habits won’t change. Relationships rule and sometimes become more of a road block than helping to push things further.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Benefits - Cafeteria options are great (but it is pricy) - TJX stores are great! - Very smart and extremely hard working employees

    Cons

    - Salary compensation is wildly lower than many other companies - Poor work/life balance - no regard for working crazy hours - Not much advocacy from managers for their direct reports - Reactive culture of snap decisions which often result in repetitive or necessary additional work

    Advice to Management

    - Make sure your team feels supported and truly valued when it counts. - Listen to your direct reports when they say they're overworked. While it may be hard to push back on an AVP or someone in a higher position, those people often have NO idea the grunt work that it takes to make things happen and you are stretching your team extremely thin. - Some AVP's/managers don't lead by example when it comes to their... communication and composure to their direct reports. The way that they speak to their employees is unacceptable and people just ignore it because of their title. - No regard for late night and /or early weekend communications on non-emergency situations. - Reevaluate team structures instead of pushing more work onto a few people. - Work with your direct reports to help them develop their careers instead of keeping them in a position where they will leave because they don't see opportunity for growth.
