Pros

Nice gift incentives and that's all.

Cons

Very corporate, management is unprofessional and aloof, cronyism.

Advice to Management

Set your teams up for success, don't nit pick at everyone because you fear someone could replace your position and you feel threatened by talented, young employees.

    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 Management

    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)

    Pros

    Good discount! There was a family-like atmosphere that I really enjoyed. I was an intern so I felt like other associates and Human Resources were very willing to help me advance to the next level.

    Cons

    The sales atmosphere is extremely competitive. When in competition, associates are not very willing to help one another. They were at times very catty toward one another.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get in touch with associates in more of a one-on-one setting.
