    Pros

    Great people, collaborative work environment, employee perks/discount, most reputable retailer in the business. A fun place to go to everyday for work!

    Cons

    Schedule; while better than most retailers there are still holiday black out periods and night and weekend shifts. After 10 years of working a retail schedule I decided to look elsewhere Promotions: if you are able to relocate you will get promoted but the the HR position, there isonly 1 position above you and in most cases the HR Manager is tenured and not looking to leave

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

    Pros

    The culture is great, definitely enjoyed the benefits, one of which was the 30/30 discount.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth opportunities, that includes executive management roles. The reason being is because there isn't a lot of turnover, especially in upper management positions. I new several people, that had 30-40 years tenure with the company and had no desire to retire or step down from their positions. My own boss, was pretty much in a career holding pattern.

    I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time

    Pros

    Fun, good starting pay, benefits, vacation time, 401k, good discount, lots of different people you can meet with interesting backgrounds, good for resume

    Cons

    bad hours, not enough hours, work weekends and holidays, expensive items, some coworkers do not respect you/your department. Stigma for working there.

    Advice to Management

    More direction, better training. Wish Corporate would visit more. CCTVs flashcards for training purposes. Training videos in the beginning would help new hires.

    I worked at Neiman Marcus full-time

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. Working around so many women comes with some difficulty, but overall it was a great place to work.

    Cons

    One of the cons about working at Neiman's was the hours. I guess that just comes with working in retail, though.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to keep up the good work. ALso, never stop the 30/30 program. What a great perk!

    I worked at Neiman Marcus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with high end clothing lines on most current trends to show all the latest fashion from Italy. Lurgy brands Tom Ford

    Cons

    Fewer customers walk in But gives you more time to spend with your customers to be able to increase volume

    Advice to Management

    Turn inventory at least 3 times per year to give your shoppers a new look Shoppers want to see new looks when buying high end clothing

    Pros

    You can learn so much, in my case cosmetics. Lot's of training, good support from most of your coworkers.

    Cons

    I was straight commission. This breeds, with some a very hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe a little more supervision, and less favoritism.
