Architectural Intern Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Architectural Intern?

Architectural Intern in Dallas:
Pros: I wear a lot of hats. By that I mean, there are so many different tasks, you will not become bored w/ monotony. Maybe down the road it will seem that way, but till then...
Cons: Some days, I don't know what I'm doing, or need to do. Or have so many things to do, I'm not sure what to do first. It can be overwhelming. I've had managers that could guide me through things like this, but I made less there. At this locations, I'm given very little direction or supervision, and have to find a way through it. It's a huge mixed bag.

Architectural Intern in Bozeman:
"Passionately Optimistic."
Pros: The work is creative and different every day. I enjoy making our clients happy and we do make a difference in peoples lives- however design has more potential to do so than our firm is currently capable of. I am constantly learning more about my profession because I get to work directly with our principal architect. It is only stressful about 5% of the time. The management is laid back. Because I work in a small firm I get to do a lot of tasks that are not usually given to a junior architect. Looking forward to continuing to learn more and get licensed in about 18 months.
Cons: School didn't teach me enough. Professors are living in la-la land so I don't feel like my education should have taken so long to achieve, nor is it worth the cost. Since junior architects learn nothing in school they are not very valuable to their employers until they gain experience. The worst thing about my job is how much I get paid. After spending 6 years in college to earn the degree I need to be an architect I feel I should be making at least 40K a year if now 50K. At this rate I will be paying off my student loans forever. Also working in a small firm our only benefit is flexible hours, free coffee and beer. No paid leave, no 401K, no medical benefits.

Architectural Intern in New York:
"Arch Salary CS."
Pros: The responsibility and creativity.
Cons: The bad pay and the small atmosphere.

Architectural Intern in Orlando:
Pros: The potential of learning new things in programs and how architecture companies work outside of design.
Cons: Not seeing the possibility of growth in the project coordinator way. Having people who have less experience and education manage to make more than me. I know money isn't everything but realizing that you're being taken advantage of isn't the best thing to see. You're expected to stress out and work long hours for nothing.

Architectural Intern in Orlando:
"Compensation."
Pros: Can wear whatever, not overly difficult.
Cons: Poor pay, poor communication, lack of good design, lack of motivation for good design.

Architectural Intern in Houston:
Pros: Interesting project types, flexible work hours, collegial office environment.
Cons: Limited upward mobility, office standards/structure.

Architectural Intern in New York:
"Architectural Intern."
Pros: Working with architects and in New York City, being creative.
Cons: No overtime pay, some tasks that are below my education level, high stress deadlines, encouragement to stay late, discouraged to take time off.
