Forest City's Yu: architecture "a wonderful thing to study, but financially, it’s not rewarded properly"

An interesting quote from architect-turned-developer Susi Yu, who heads development (and thus serves as the Pacific Park Brooklyn point person) for Forest City Ratner, in The Real Deal:
In 2015, when Yu rejoined Forest City, her colleagues handed her a wooden boomerang to welcome her back, a tradition at the firm. One career she won’t be returning to, however, is that of architecture. She has no second-doubts about leaving the field. “It’s a wonderful thing to study, but financially, it’s not rewarded properly,” she said.
