Would you pick job A or job B?

You have been walking the architecture woods for 5-6 years in sight of more dreadful landings ahead. At a cross roads where the path forks, you found yourself with great insights to the future through two transparent door. 

Door A shows a work place with a more sense of accomplishment, more pay, more responsibility, more stress.

and Door B shows a work place with less sense of accomplishment, less pay, less responsibility, and less stress. 

Having to decide before the darkness of architecture sucks the soul out of you, which door would pick?

Door A. You can always go back to Door B if Door A doesn't work out. Door A, seems like a better resume move as well? Are you trying to retire or keep climbing?

Who goes to (and pays for) 5+ years of school, only to take the path of mediocrity for their entire career?  Certainly, the profession has its share of people that simply coast.  But, risk and reward have always had a uniquely convenient partnership.  Seems to me that you might as well at least walk thru Door A if given the opportunity.  Door B will always be there waiting.

Door C.

Don't delude yourself that there are only two choices.

Reprogram the simulation.

I choose to leap out of the window. I am sure there is a some sort of soft cushion below. Maybe even a pool.

These are unrealistic choices (at least in my experience), but A. No brainer.

The more likely choice is: Door A shows a work place with a more sense of accomplishment, less pay, less responsibility, more stress. and Door B shows a work place with less sense of accomplishment, more pay, more responsibility, and less stress.

That's a tougher choice.

Door A shows a work place with a more sense of accomplishment, less pay, more responsibility, more stress. and Door B shows a work place with less sense of accomplishment, more pay, less responsibility, and less stress.

After hearing the whispers from the Archinect Gods and taking the blue pill, you have decide to take the path of hardship and leap towards Door A.

Right before you turn the knob on the transparent door, a dark figure approaches quickly towards you, breaking through the glass while catching his breath. You are in shock to see that the figure is you in some sort of shadowy shade and has seem to age 2-3 years from your present self. 

Grabbing onto your shoulders and lightly shaking you, he disappears into the night like a dark smoke from a winter chimney echoing faded words "abandon hopeall ye who enter here..."

Too bad he didn't appear when you were applying to architecture school.

I take door A but pawn all the stressful stuff onto a PM so I can just do the fun design work.
