Lead visual stylist
Lead Visual (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 27, 2016
In October of 2015, they laid off 95% of their Visual Managers. Now the leads have to do all of their tasks plus be responsible for the whole store environment. All in 37.5 hours a week, NO OVER TIME EVER. plus no increase of pay. There is no opportunity for growth or wealth. This company was purchased by a hedge fund and the Canadian Teachers retirement fund. They are making changes in a retail environment that they do not understand. They are dismantling everything that made us Neiman Marcus.

alot of production but no organization
Packer/wrapper (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXJanuary 24, 2016
There was always alot of work to do but, it was always given to first shift. Supervisors did move workers around to help out in other areas which was good to learn new things. Supervisors did not have backup plans when equipment including conveyor belt malfunctions. Instead, workers were sent home early causing production rate to fall behind.
Pros
always lots of work.
Cons
supervisors were not organized to distribute production evenly among shifts.

Operations Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 23, 2016
A huge part of my character and charisma now is due greatly to the work environment in Neiman Marcus. Between the personality of coworkers to the personality of customers. Neimans was great with work hours and benefits. As long as i was on top of my responsibilities no one was on top of me. However management i would say was the only issue i had because it was never consistent there were new managers followed by different management styles every few months or so making it hard to keep up to date with everyone's requirements.
Pros
Free Lunches/Gift Cards, 3 breaks in 8 hour shift, Reasonable Workloads
Cons
Terrible advancement opportunities for Operation Crew

Loss Prevention Lead Investigator (Current Employee) –  Natick, MAJanuary 18, 2016
Maintaining building security whilst detecting and apprehending shoplifters, fraud suspects, and ticket switching suspects. I have learned management skills while being the Lead investigator working directly with the Loss Prevention Manager to help reduce shrink, etc. The most enjoyable part of my job is the cross training, I enjoy always learning and expanding my options to further my career in the security field.

Designated Sales Associate in Men's Fine Jewelry (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 2, 2016
Fast, energetic and mostly fun place to work. Upper management was terrific. Co-workers were good competitive people with their families in mind. There were no typical days means every day was a wonderful new challenge. Great restaurant on main floor made lunch very easy to get. The hardest part of the job was fellow employees getting too competitive...:) but things always seemed to work out.

Sales Support (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXDecember 27, 2015
Its a great place if you are in the sales not in the support area. Not much room for advancement. Management has been improving but still a few flaws.

Not enough traffic
Stylist/Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 9, 2015
Not enough walk in traffic from tourists, and repeat clients don't appreciate getting phone calls about new merch/promotions. The dress code is laid back as is the management of my particular location. I feel that there should be more incentive and a higher commission along with more praise for good sales, it would motivate much more than just sales alone.
Pros
co-workers are wonderful and unique
Cons
too slow paced
