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

    Pros

    Discount, Sample Sales, Co-Workers in Corporate Office

    Cons

    Let me tell you about this place. It started off so well, then they implemented a new inventory system to mess everything up. Literally nothing worked properly, but yet we were still expected to do things correctly. Everything came down onto the assistant buyers and the coordinators. Our individual teams helped one another, but when push came to shove, it was all up to the AB's. THEN they had the audacity to tell us to come in on Saturday's, like what? You want me, to come into this place on my weekend AND you want to extend my day an hour, I cannot deal. Things are not getting better, but we are getting used to working in the systems. Still would like a raise though.

    Advice to Management

    Care about us AB's, like ACTUALLY care. Because if all 100+ of us decided to be "sick" for a week, this place would crumble.

    Pros

    Long lunches, morning meetings provide breakfast, easy working on the floor, no need to restock much. everyone is very nice and welcoming.

    I worked at Neiman Marcus (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits with follow up from the Human Resource department. As a manager, not asked to invest too many hours. Nice environment to work in.

    Cons

    With brick and mortar going extinct, the numbers of new clientele is dwindling. As a food and beverage manager, there is less and less opportunity to advance and often the store executives are not knowledgeable in the hospitality industry.

    Advice to Management

    Take individual meetings with the in-house public relation department as often as you can and finalize all events as quickly as possible. Concentrate on building personal relationships with all repeat restaurant clientele and do the same during events.

    Pros

    Best assortments in the industry, talented associates, always pushing forward. Strong talent in merchant division. 110 year legacy upon which to build.

    Cons

    New systems are a big challenge. Inconsistent reporting, data, analysis, etc. Not enough bandwidth to effectively run reports, then the data is wrong.
