    Pros

    A great company to work for, I have been with Neiman's over 20 years. I actually enjoy going to work everyday.

    Cons

    Systems are very antiquated. They are working on an upgrade but it is slow coming. With this change senior management understands the growing pains, but at the VP level they does not. Very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and treat them with respect. This is directed to the VP level. Remember you work for Neiman Marcus and you are not Neiman Marcus.

    Pros

    Many nice people; exposure to vendors and management is nice; great for entrepreneurial minds who want to fully own their portion of the business; sample sales; youthful culture in merchant side despite a lot of tenured buyers/managers

    Cons

    Some of the more tenured employees on the merchant side can be somewhat stuck in their ways.

    Advice to Management

    Need to improve compensation to compete with the market, the "Oh, but you get to work for Neiman Marcus" doesn't cut it in this day and age

    Pros

    Ever changing environment, great teams, exciting product to work with. Everyday is different and you stay so busy the time just flies by.

    Cons

    The company is still a bit old school in it's corporate roots. No real career progression unless approved by HR way in advance. Very difficult to prove yourself even if you work extremely long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Re-analyze the pay structure and promote your employees at the right time to encourage them to stay around. No matter how much the employee loves their job, without a competitive pay structure and career advancement, people are sure to find new careers.

    Pros

    Good benefits and most of the employees are nice to work with.

    Cons

    Organization is not well structured if you would like to move up. From any position you can apply for a higher position & you may or may not get it. There is not a set career path so therefore, unqualified people are in certain positions making decisions & they have no background experience in those high positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism & hire qualified people for the right positions such as Store HR Manager, Store LP Manager, Store Manager & higher.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great pay. Great benefits. Good Perks. Professional atmosphere for those that pride themselves on their work and their career.

    Cons

    Little room for career advancement. There are a lot of people who retire from Neiman Marcus, which shows a lot about the company. The problem is, the ladder for advancement is often very crowded. In some cases, there is no room on the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a clear path for advancement. The hierarchy is somewhat clear, but less defined than needed. There is no defined path to advance your career unless you can relocate.

    Pros

    The discounts, the opportunity for advancement, the people you meet, you can learn alot and develop many skills if you are interested in hard work.

    Cons

    Overtime the expectations grow but not resources or incentives. Its getting worse in the last call division. At my location general manager has unrealistic expectations and everyone seems to be a degree of unhappy due to her iron fist rule. Good people are leaving and looking to leave, even a few managers. The HR at this location is not to be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to due their jobs they have been doing well for years, their is nothing wrong with wanting better, but everything is a process. STOP micromanaging everyone in everyway.
