Intern Architect Reviews

What is it like working as an Intern Architect?

Intern Architect in Seattle:
"Management progression."
Pros: I like that this job has so many pieces to it that you mind doesn't have to be stuck on one thing day after day.
Cons: It seems like I got a giant education but am not getting paid as much as other professions with the same level of education.

Intern Architect in Cambridge:
"Experiences Help to Learn and Still Considered Payment."
Pros: Working with a good group of people that you can be yourself around and also offer their knowledge to help you progress is what I like most about my career.
Cons: The commute and pay structure.

Intern Architect in Muskegon:
"Overworked Late Nights with high Stress Deadlines."
Pros: Training, Career development, interesting projects.
Cons: Too many late nights and long hours with no overtime pay.

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.
