Focused on increasing stock price without regard to customers, products, employees, or Quality

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CalAmp full-time

ProsBusiness is on a sharp growth curve and has been consistently throughout a tough recession
Good people who are willing to take on more responsibilities can do so if they step up

ConsManagement is primarily focused on stock value
Employee satisfaction is probably lowest on the list of priorities to management
Quality control is seriously lacking
Lack of scalability - No real interest in process and optimization

Advice to Senior ManagementSooner or later, the 30, 40 percent growth curve will slow. Prepare for this by optimizing the business with better processes, top notch people, and quality control procedures. That way, your customers will be happier with solid products, employees will be more fulfilled, and your stock value won't tank like it did last time you mismanaged the business.
