Pros

Large Company, they can give you lots of freedom. Fairly progressive in terms of product knowledge, good discount on products.

Cons

Poor health insurance, no progressive growth, they don't embrace tecnology and it is hard for the company to get messages out to employees.

    Pros

    Great discounts and I had a great boss I directly reported to

    Cons

    no work life balance, last minute pressure and even when you met the requirement it was still not good enough. No understanding, training or incentives for growth, set you to fail, company lacks family bond environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should work with worker that are hardworking and value them, who are dedicated to company, instead of making unrealistic demands without proper management planning and system support.

    Pros

    The discount is nice, but that's about it!

    Cons

    The employees at Neiman Marcus act as though they never left high school. All during training we are told to greet everyone, and never judge by appearances, yet the other employees do exactly that and are rude to newer employees- and are CONSTANTLY talking badly behind eachothers backs. Working with such expensive product had made most employees jaded, and to put more bluntly- superficial a**holes. Selling outside of your own department is encouraged by management- but don't cross the employees of the department you are moving in on- they are like vultures protecting their carcasses, and in my experience, the carcasses were the handbags.
    At first everyone seems really nice and smiley and great, surrounded by beautiful designer products and getting to talk to people all day, not too shabby!. But you quickly come to find, if you are doing well- making lots of commissions, management is pleased but co-associates are pissed, and will bad mouth you. On the other hand, if you aren't selling a lot (even if it is at no fault of your own, for example, if the store is constantly EMPTY), then management is upset, and oh yeah, your co-associates are still talking behind your back. Also, even management would bad-mouth other employees to associates. Very unprofessional.
    As for the executives and HR department- they are the absolute WORST! They appear all inviting and friendly at first, but they are cut-throat and have no problem firing people on the spot. I truly believe the people who have been at Neiman's for a long period of time are mean and miserable people. I used to be a big fan of the store, but I will never shop there again, and will happily bring my business else where. DO NOT WORK THERE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - The store seems out-dated and reeks of snobbery.
    - Sax is much more inviting.
    - Your management is a joke.
    - Your executives are also a joke.
