Good industry, lots of potential in biometrics. The opportunity for retail, banking and national security is/wass there.
The company is very disorganized. It lacks leadership and vision. Management can't see past the end of their noses. To be in an industry that has such growth and not executes is a crying shame. They hop from idea to idea and never finish anything. Products are hurled out and then abandoned. Basically an edict will come down and a flurry of activity will occur, a lot of it unproductive and some product will go out the door. Then because the original release lacks the quality needed they end up having the customer send it back and more bad press will occur. They have had products fail in the market place because of an initial poor design that was passed down from on high and the design flaws would not be corrected because the top guy didn't issue the edict. It's so sad to see sucj opportunity get wasted.
