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

    Pros

    working from home, The training technique it may be a little difficult but I like how its just you and your computer you kind of go at your own pace. Its worth it for all the work that you have to do and all that information that you need to know, its better they have you training yourself I think you can retain the information better.

    Cons

    The Pay, The Customers...sometimes can be a little aggresive

    Advice to Management

    I think that higher pay would be great !
