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..
