Advice to ManagementAdvice

Most companies like to promote from within, however I have not seen that Neiman Marcus. I would advise that upper management train their team so that one day a member of that team can lead. Many employees feel upset that management promotes outsiders that have never worked for Neiman Marcus.

    Sell your heart out - or get out. Also note, I never intended for long term employment.

    Pros

    Wonderful department manager that was extremely dedicated and professional, amazing chocolate chip cookies at The Zodiac, a personal pro was that I had no intention of long term employment plans with NM, and an employee discount (only used on cosmetics) never hurts. Also occasional contests/giveaways/raffles with pretty great prizes!

    Cons

    Depending on department managements, fellow coworkers, competitiveness, and personal approach to conflict, could get dicey and catty arguing over customers. Fortunately for me, I got a job at NM because I was bored on my sabbatical and as I wasn't trying to make a living off of NM compensation, it was easier to walk away from arguments over customers and just let it go to keep the peace. Like most retail, opportunity to advance into leadership role is based on more on sales #s and years with company, as opposed to management skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider revising compensation structure, downturn in luxury retail sales makes it especially difficult to earn a living, higher turnover, associates itching to get out and find a consistent paycheck.
