    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

    Employee discount, sample sales....that's it.

    The work environment is going downhill fast. All you do is data entry as an Assistant Buyer.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old ways. It worked.

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

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