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

Pros

Incredible merchandise, lovely surroundings and helpful management.

Cons

Working on commission created a 'hostile' environment among co-workers. Customers could pick up on it and they would leave dept or feel the need to to act as 'referee'. Very uncomfortable and awkward and not the image Neiman's wants to portray.

Advice to Management

NM needs to come up with a much healthier compensation system. Perhaps if all store members work together to make their store #1 revenue producer and then share in reward. NM wants to present 'team spirit' and we all work together but the competitive environment in search of the $ is counterintuitive. There are plenty of commission-only jobs out there. Changing compensation structure would align with NM's purpose.

    I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I loved working in a high end environment and being around the amazing product. I learned a lot about business.

    Cons

    There is little room for advancement even though they say there is. The communication is terrible and often untrue. There is a corporate culture of misleading or not telling the whole truth, everything is on a need to know basis-even when you are on the same team.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest.

    I worked at Neiman Marcus full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training program. Lots of structure. Many long-term employees (10+ years) without a lot of turnover in the corporate office. A very professional work environment. Consistent, stable company direction without a lot of wild strategy changes.

    Cons

    Not as many levels or opportunities for advancement as some othe companies. Slightly less flexible and slower to adopt new ideas due to it being an older company. Promotions can tend to be given based more on who you know vs prior performance. People who have been there a long time can get away with poor behavior more than they probably should.
