I admit, I've never even seen any of their advertising but I'm a super loyal customer and advocate of their stores. Tell me more. If they suck as a client, that's awful. Their brand is ripe with all kinds of potential.

@ACD1 lol yes. A LOT. And LIDL is pushing in which has caused Aldi to perk up and want to increase their marketing efforts. 2018 is going to be wild!

@huge 1 I’m an Aldi loyalist who has done significant Wikipedia reading. Haha They came to Richmond last year and now I’m addicted. Being in NYC has given me withdrawals. Not owned by the same company. Owned by two German brothers who hate one another and split their German Aldi empire into Aldi North and Aldi South. One of them owns the Trader Joe’s chain and the other owns the Aldi American chain.

@publicis - only doing this in hopes you’ll tell me about the neighborhood since I may be moving to NYC from Miami and need a place.

I’m currently on the bench and had a senior colleague reach out to me about assisting with a work item. I volunteered to help (but I can’t charge my time). There was (to my knowledge) an entire team of individuals working on the project up until last week so it seemed to me that my help wasn’t really needed. The project is spinning down and they’ve lessened the team members, but I’m still helping out with tasks. I don’t mind helping at all, but it seems weird. Am I thinking into this too much?

I feel like I’m hitting a glass ceiling of sorts when it comes to representing clients at important events (ie, mediation, hearing, etc.). I’ll handle everything up until that point, but then I get the sense that the client wants the partner to step in and handle the big event. These same partners have told me they think I can handle it and would like for me to, but we ultimately have to meet the client’s expectations.
