    I have been working at CalAmp full-time

    Pros

    Business 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

    Cons

    Management 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 Management

    Sooner 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.
