Information Technology (IT) Architect Advice

Q: What is it like working as an Information Technology (IT) Architect?

Information Technology (IT) Architect in Cambridge:
"Move on if where you are is stagnant."
If you aren't constantly learning and innovating new solutions, and pushing outside of your comfort zone, architecture may not be for you. It can be tough at times, but once you adopt the mantra of "see problem, fix problem, rinse repeat", and lose the fear of speaking up when you see something wrong, whether it's your problem or someone else's, you'll find every day is fun and involving. It's also important to accept your advice may not always be taken up, and try to choose what your priorities are carefully, and as much as you can, with confidence and independence. When you see a culture of stagnation appear and that the focus is only on problems that make others look good when solved, which may hurt that business or it's staff, leave or choose not to work with that client again. Try to gain buy in where you can, but don't try for too long, you will only harm your career by staying when there is no interest or buy in for solving real problems.
