Better job with the OCMJEA certification?

Hi there,

I would be interested if you guys who passed the OCMJEA were able to get better paid jobs afterwards?

I am currently at the "crossroads" in my career trying to figure out which way to go. I am a developer (mostly Java) thinking about going in the direction of an architect..
+ if you are working as an architect: what is the core of your real job routine? How much of it is "babysitting" the developers, how much of it is sitting in the meetings? I would love to hear from a real-life experience so that I can decide if it would be fun for me..

BIG Thanks!!

It depends on the place. Some places have an architecture team. Others have an architect embedded in teams. Some places architects "still" develop and have hands on experience as well. So it depends
