    Pros

    Huge discounts - which makes you spend your hard earned money back to them.
    Discounts at their restaurant.
    No late working hours.
    Some staff are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    Snobby staff. Snotty customers
    Competitive when it comes to selling in your department. Every customer belongs to someone else so you're not allowed to make a sale.
    Due to competitiveness, co-workers get jealous often. Make a big sale and expect the others to notice it. They're not giving you a compliment on the good job you did, they are envious and wish it was them instead of you.
    It's boring. Most hours go by without any customer coming in.
    Don't expect to go anywhere, once you're a sales associate, you're going to be stuck here.
    Customers returning what they bought because of NM's crazy return policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know where you go, but, stay on the floor long enough to see that those long-time employees of yours aren't the best employees you've got. They are the ones who gets jealous and disappears during their shifts. They are the ones who take extremely long breaks. Recognize your employees for the work they have done and not how long they have stayed with the company.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Houston, TX

    I worked at Neiman Marcus full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In control of how you want to run your business (for the most part, aside from micromanagement), it is nice to see the newest items/trends, contests to win NM money and/or product and I found it very satisfying to build trusting, long-term relationships with clients/some co-workers and some vendors.

    Cons

    The dept managers are under a huge amount of pressure from the merchandise managers, they are super stressed by the store managers and they are stressed by corporate. Some of the managers are really great...Others treat you like you are 10 years old. Even when some of the sales associates are twice their age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to create a trusting environment in the department.
