    Pros

    You get an employee discount at Neiman Marcus, and you also get a good possibility for benefits and advancement within the company.

    Cons

    The hours are pretty set, so aside from Holiday Season you don't really get overtime.

    Pros

    I love working for this company. They have an understanding of family/work balance which makes me happier and I enjoy my work. The discount is amazing!

    Cons

    The friendliness of fellow employees is lacking. We are suppose to be a company dedicated to the highest level of customer service but yet I don't feel like that people are very respectful of there fellow associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More encouragement and positive feedback is always something that helps keep up the motivation! Overall, great place to work.

    Pros

    The EDP training program is great if you are looking to break into the corporate side of the business. Everyone is very friendly both in the stores and corporate offices.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. Assistant buyers at NM make much less then they do at Saks. Even JCPenny pays WAY better. While there is opportunity for a yearly bonus and raise it is so small that it is almost insulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The pay needs to be better and the company should try harder to promote from within. I also don't understand why they recruit from colleges like Standford and not from fashion schools like Parsons, FIT or FIDM.

    Pros

    There are many tools to become a good analyst. If you want to become an analyst, there are so many ways the company can help you learn. There is good job security as well

    Cons

    Because it is a huge corporation, you can get lost in the crowd and sometimes not given credit for the work you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up more room for career growth

    I worked at Neiman Marcus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Your experience will depend on the attitude of the others around you. Working at the downtown Dallas store, I felt like most people were happy and management was encouraging and supportive. Commission based work is hard, but if you don't know that going in that's on you. Really like that they're using more technology.

    Cons

    Department management kept changing. Made it hard to develop relationships with them and use them as resources for customers. This is because our location worked well for people in the EDP to get their store experience without moving. Good for them, bad for the retail workers. EDP was harder to get into for people who have already worked in the company as sales people. They want you to have experience as a coordinator instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the EDP requirements so that a department management step isn't required- they should shadow them, but not be forced to work in a position they have no intention of staying in for more than a year. Get people in those positions who want to stay.

    Technology wise - I see great efforts being made (hello, Smart Mirrors?! Awesome!), but seriously, update the POS system. It was a joke where I was.
