Boring is not a word usually attached to being an Architect - so I’m wondering if this person really is a licensed Architect or, really, what kind of big company this was? Often people, even Architects don’t design buildings but have other jobs associated with owning or operating buildings... and not every the building that Architects design are exciting and unique. If this firm did a building type that was repetitive (think McDonald’s or wal-mart or hotels) it could be less creative and less fulfilling than doing award winning, famous designs Also , everyone at an architectural firm has a different job to do- some especially at first, are not so thrilling , not so creative . Much like on a sports team, not everyone gets to be the MVP but that doesn’t mean it is boring. And finally, there are deadlines and pressure to make the client happy- but I don’t see how that would make the job boring - but it could, along with the lower pay make someone unenthusiastic about doing architecture for a living.
So, think about how architecture was done there and how you handle stress and boredom as maybe another firm would be better for you - good luck
