    Pros

    You get to work on interesting web development projects and their associated challenges. The challenges can differ depending on the department - some departments get to work with more modern tech stacks. The challenges can also tend to be more interesting than you might expect. Especially for things such as ecommerce where you need to consider the subtle art of choosing the right technology to solve problems in the areas of performance, security, SEO, and UI/UX. Many an hour can be spent in optimizing the performance of frontend and backend code to solve scalability challenges. All of this can definitely be more interesting than just "create a website for this client". That said, these opportunities sometimes get reserved for the senior developer or technical manager rock stars - if you're one of these you'll have a tremendous opportunity to grow within the company and be given more interesting and difficult projects while also helping to mentor the other developers working with you. This is a great place to help others learn and grow with you. If you're someone just looking for a "job" where you "write code" then it might work for you, but you'll have many more opportunities if you're interested in solving problems beyond just the code.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be considered standard - expect to work regular 40 hour weeks but then also occasionally a little more during periods of the year where it makes sense: new website launches, production outages, etc. No flex time schedule, but could be expected since work is done kind of on a "consulting" schedule where communication with clients and other businesses during standard hours is expected. PTO days are limited, and sometimes you might be wishing you had more after a few periods of sickness throughout the year. Gets better with additional days given with more years of employment. The company is growing, but it still feels like everyone is trying to hold on the culture that the company had at a smaller scale. This can work to a certain extent but eventually the growth might reach a point where some key players in the company might not be recognized. From the tech side of things, some departments are not as "fun" as others with regards to programming languages, tech stacks, etc. You do have the opportunity to move to teams using more modern tech, especially if you have a knack for newer tech. If you're good at what you do, other teams will try to poach you and you'll naturally find yourself doing more cutting edge development.

    Pros

    Americaneagle.com feels like my second home and I look forward to coming to the office every day to be a part of something special. I am genuinely humbled that I’m able to work for one of the very best companies in the industry, and alongside so many wonderful and talented people, producing some amazing work. The company culture is fantastic as it’s family-oriented and a great deal of importance is placed on extending that family feel to our peers and clients. I've certainly made some lifelong friends and memories here. The company also offers a lot of personal growth - you’re able to get out of the company what you put into it. Lots of interesting and fun projects with clients across many different industries. We get to work with numerous different platforms, systems, and frameworks on any given day. There's honestly never a dull day. Great benefits, plenty of opportunities for learning and personal growth, industry stability with a crazy amount of growth since I stepped in the door on my first day, and clear direction, expectations, and goals from leadership. We’re the very best at what we do and we’re only that way because there are so many skillfully talented, passionate, prideful, and enthusiastic people here collaborating on a daily basis to produce our best work possible.

    Cons

    Nothing constructive beyond typical growing pains. The company has grown by something like 320% since I first started, so, scaling-up hiccups when a company grows that exponentially fast and large is inevitable. Leadership has done their best to account for everything though.

    Pros

    Americaneagle.com is a great company to work for. A family owned business which provides a nurturing and positive work environment, that also rewards hard working employees with great pay and benefits. Everyone here is really supportive and friendly, and most importantly encouraging and inspiring. A company that really believes in promoting from within, full of managers and team members that will help you get there. Good work life balance with the typical 40 hour work week (sometimes more during busy season) but flex start time which is wonderful. Approachable HR staff as well as department mangers.

    Cons

    I have no cons working here.

    Pros

    Overall Americaneagle.com is a company that I am happy to call home. In the past year of employment I have learned a lot about the culture and work ethic. They promote a positive work environment that encourages employees and supports their values. They are family owned and everyone makes you feel welcome and valuing your opinion. The clientele is great and love what AmericanEagle.com stands for, offers, and values, which makes going to work every day exciting. The company is growing extremely fast and works to self promote employees which is very encouraging because you are able to get out of the company what you put into it. The management teams are always willing to listen and are extremely humble.

    Cons

    I didn't start at Americaneagle.com sooner. They are the type of company that you will be happy to work with.
