Pros

The employee discount that Neiman Marcus offerred to their employees was pretty good in comparison to other retail stores in the area. That was a pro.

Cons

The downsides are very low salary earnings even though you worked almost 40 hours a week. Another con is how the other employees treated each other and how they would take sales. Other sales associates were snooby, unhelpful, did whatever they wanted while they were suppose to be working. There is no respect from co-workers and so much competition. Don't tell your co-worker that you opened a new NM credit card for a customer. The co-worker will catch a bad attitude towards you real FAST.

Advice to Management

First, hire some younger managers that know what they are doing. Second, a great manager should be consistently praising their sales associates and out on the selling floor with his or her team. Third, managers should never play favorites. Fourth, managers and the executive team should always respect and treat their staff like if they are gold. Without the selling staff, there would be no Neiman Marcus. Fifth, the general manager should make it a point to check up on her management team to make sure they are adhering to all the rules.

    Pros

    In my 20 plus years of working with various Retailers, Neiman Marcus is by far the best company to be with for quality of life. They truly care about employees and are flexible & understanding when personal issues arise.

    Cons

    Not currently taking Visa & Mastercard in all stores has a negative impact on our daily business & future growth.

    Pros

    the merchandise is some of the best in the world. The buying team and planners have it figured out.

    Cons

    Senior management has a degree of seperation from the sellers. Some dept managers are just going through the motions on a daily basis. There is very little coach and developing of the sellers to get them to the next level.
