Intern Architect Reviews

What is it like working as an Intern Architect?

Intern Architect in Fort Lauderdale:
"For the first couple of years, you learn everything new."
Pros: My favorite part about the job is seeing my designs take shape as they are being built as well as still learn something new every day.
Cons: The element I like least about my job is that, as an architect, one works to make others rich until one has their own license. Unfortunately, on top of having to pay off exuberant student loans, one gets paid very little until one has the license and, the license is very expensive and time-consuming to obtain.

Intern Architect in Galveston:
Pros: I enjoy designing, interacting with clients, and being out on the job site with the project managers and contractors. I enjoy the flexibility to work on my own and prioritize my projects.
Cons: I dislike being too trapped in the details to be able to experience the big picture of the design.

Intern Architect in Washington:
"Being a generalist."
Pros: As an architect you have to be a master of all disciplines. It is constantly a learning process as you are exposed to new products and new areas of the field. I love the challenge and solving new problems that arise every day.
Cons: I least like the politics and the lack of respect often received from other disciplines and clients.

Intern Architect in Alexandria:
Cons: Architecture is supposed to make the world a better place. The current developer mandated slum creation is making a colorless void of existence for those who utilize the developments. It's not the job; it's the industry. Some of the company leadership would be delighted to make actual architecture, but their hands are tied.
