    Pros

    The only good reason to work at Neiman Marcus is if you have plenty of money and simply want the 30% employee discount--otherwise you can't afford to even shop here.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than most comparable companies
    The benefits are so expensive you can barely afford them
    They find every little thing they can to avoid paying the miniscule bonus that they offer.
    The work you do is never enough-never good enough
    No appreciation from superiors
    Not easy to get promoted.
    They want you to stress yourself out and try to squeeze 12 hours of work into one 8 hour shift.
    They don't fill positions when people leave departments and then say they don't have the budget to offer OT but they get mad because the work isn't getting done.
    Favoritism runs rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some appreciation to your subordinates
    Make the lower level employees feel like their effort isn't futile
    Reccommend better opportunities to employees who deserve it (through proven work ethics and not favoritism)

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
