    Pros

    Company has grown and evolved from being a fast follower to a leader in their markets. Has been strong in the Internet of Things (IoT) before the space was called IoT. Never a dull moment at CalAmp.

    Cons

    You'll be working hard to build on CalAmp's leadership position. Many of the jobs are in Southern California so you'll need to like nice weather.
