Design Architect Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Design Architect in Toronto:
"Long Hours, Low Pay, Less creative than school."
Don't do it for the money as it isn't profitable. Join a good small to medium sized firm with advancement opportunities and a culture that fits you. Focus on a couple of building types to offset swings in market conditions. Focus on doing a few things well and don't sweat the rest. Be accurate. Be fast.

Design Architect in Toronto:
"Should I quit my job?"
When I started at this company I gave 120% and get back 80%, mainly in relations with trades. The company is not properly structured. My advice if you want to grow, you should look somewhere else unless some changes are made at the top.
