Senior Software Architect Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Senior Software Architect?

Senior Software Architect in Toronto:
Pros: You get to make technical decisions based on your own research and experience.
Cons: You have to make trade-offs (cost, timelines, team skill sets) knowing the result will not be great. You come up with a brilliant idea, it will be screwed up by some developers no matter what you do, and you will be held responsible anyway.
