Intern Architect Reviews

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

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.
