I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Good Pay
If you meet your goals, no one will say anything to you about what you do. You can get away with anything

Cons

Dealing with needy and impatient customers
poor training from upper management
extreme micro managing, there is a manager and assistant manager for everything
pressure to meet unrealistic goals when business is not so good.
extremely political-if you sell a lot you can do whatever you want, including breaking the rules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care and respect every employee, not just the associates who sell the most. Stop thinking you are above everyone else, there are other competitors out there that are doing much better because their senior team does not act like the world revolves around them.

    Pros

    The Money is good as long as you are willing to work for it. The customers are really awesome. The also give you a work iphone if you are a full time sales associate or if you are an executive which helps keep in contact with you customers and send them pictures of the products you wish to sell them.

    Cons

    Neiman Marcus requires you to stay in your current position for a year before you can be considered to apply for another position within. Managers are now hired through the EDP program, and most of them never desired to be a manager in the first place but they are required to be a manager for at least 2 years before going back to the buying office.
