    AAP has invested in the people & technology to digitally transform the company, for the benefit of our team members & our customers. It's an exciting time of change, transformation, and growth.

    Investment in OCM will help TM's better understand (and align) with company transformation initiatives.

    Pros

    The data science team has a lot of fun and challenging projects. The team members are competent, hard working, and friendly. Management strongly supports ongoing learning. Employees are treated like competent adults, and I have yet to see any micromanagement.

    Cons

    Some of the processes are still getting ironed out due to the team being relatively new. Those have only been minor annoyances, though.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful to keep the existing culture as the group grows.
