    I have been working at Riptide Software full-time

    Pros

    The employees at Riptide are amazing. Everyone is open, engaging and super super smart. At Riptide you can achieve work life balance. The Company offers flexible hours and in some cases, split work from home and office. Riptide participates in numerous company events, such as the Corporate 5k, chili cook-off, mud run, etc. Compensation is extremely competitive with a full benefits package, however, you can't put a price on great management and a great culture....those are a rarity to find!

    Cons

    Riptide is a very flat company, not much hierarchy, though I'm not sure if that is a pro or con. Everyone is treated equal.

    I have been working at Riptide Software full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Riptide is very flexible with time-off and comp time. The leadership has a very good knowledge of the simulation program that they have produced.

    Cons

    The salary is not what it should although that is probably due to contract issues and not the companies fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Riptide is a great company to work for. They give me a great deal of leeway to get the job done. They are very responsive to my requests for updates, replacement parts, and help with troubleshoots any issues that might come up. Riptide could have given us a little more training on the system while they were at this location.

    Pros

    Riptide Software seeks out the best talent Florida has to offer. Management at Riptide truly understands what it is to be a software company and allows you to be a software engineer. Working for Riptide has been one of the best moves I have ever made in my career thus far.

    Cons

    I cannot speak to any cons of working for Riptide. Typically this is where I start in on work/life balance, but Riptide truly understands that you have a life outside of work and is flexible enough to work with you on any personal things you could have going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management, Keep doing what you do! You guys are awesome! I wouldn't change one thing!

    Pros

    Great work environment, a lot of good people to work with, very laid back atmosphere, and the company allows you to have a great work-life balance. You get to have exposure to a lot of different, which benefits a lot for your professional growth, and it's very rewarding if you like to be always using the newest technologies.

    Cons

    It is located right on north of UCF, which makes commuting complicated if you live anywhere but near Oviedo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An advice would be to let the developers to work on a more team based approach, I think the developers would take better ownership of the projects and deliver better quality products and code.

    I worked at Riptide Software part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This company has some very neat technology. It also has a very startup-ish feel to it. I enjoy that it has very flexible hours. Additionally, some of the people you get to work with are actually pretty smart, which is not always the case. Another positive note is that senior management is actually pretty good at their job. Management isn't breathing down your back, micro-managing, or hovering over you to see when you are going to be finished. They give you plenty of breathing room to get things done as you see fit, so long as your goals are accomplished.

    Cons

    Non senior-level managers often make mistakes with regards to employee pay. They sometimes forget to apply bonuses. Other times, they pay the wrong amount. I'm not saying that this is on purpose, but it can be very demotivating if you're trying to put in %100. This is especially true if you're being asked to work overtime and staying long nights or weekends. Another problem is that some of the lower-level managers don't have good people skills. Sometimes, they can be rude or insulting, though not on purpose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making payroll mistakes.
