Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good Pay
If you meet your goals, no one will say anything to you about what you do. You can get away with anything

Cons

Dealing with needy and impatient customers
poor training from upper management
extreme micro managing, there is a manager and assistant manager for everything
pressure to meet unrealistic goals when business is not so good.
extremely political-if you sell a lot you can do whatever you want, including breaking the rules.

Advice to Management

Care and respect every employee, not just the associates who sell the most. Stop thinking you are above everyone else, there are other competitors out there that are doing much better because their senior team does not act like the world revolves around them.
