Pros

The employee discount is great, and the 30/30's are really great. The Clients can be fun to work with and fellow employees make for a great environment.

Cons

Things were going great until there were changes in upper management. It suddenly went from being great to being unprofessional (to say the least, more like disturbing bad dream). It became evident that the new management was on a mission to justify their actions without any regard to several employees.

The executives and corporate have no interest in hearing anything if it opposes their motives/actions, regardless of how fallacious it is.

Advice to Management

Advice to the new management: encourage and practice fair dealings of all people; encourage maturity in new management; be honest with yourselves and others.

    Pros

    The employee discount that Neiman Marcus offerred to their employees was pretty good in comparison to other retail stores in the area. That was a pro.

    Cons

    The downsides are very low salary earnings even though you worked almost 40 hours a week. Another con is how the other employees treated each other and how they would take sales. Other sales associates were snooby, unhelpful, did whatever they wanted while they were suppose to be working. There is no respect from co-workers and so much competition. Don't tell your co-worker that you opened a new NM credit card for a customer. The co-worker will catch a bad attitude towards you real FAST.

    Advice to Management

    First, hire some younger managers that know what they are doing. Second, a great manager should be consistently praising their sales associates and out on the selling floor with his or her team. Third, managers should never play favorites. Fourth, managers and the executive team should always respect and treat their staff like if they are gold. Without the selling staff, there would be no Neiman Marcus. Fifth, the general manager should make it a point to check up on her management team to make sure they are adhering to all the rules.
