Building a better working world
The hardest part is the complexity of work nature as we were required to contact a wide variety of stakeholders in order to manage affairs of a company (most likely in liquidation).

The most enjoyable part is there were supportive colleagues who did not hesitate to offer help when needed.

No training and coaching
I worked as an intern. There is no training or coaching. The seniors are not very friendly and only cares about if you finish the job, instead of your future career development. Sometimes I feel like I am just copying the template and know nothing about the job.

Tough place to move ahead, lots of politics and lack of collarboration
Publications say all the right things, but day to day life as an employee is difficult, lack of collaboration leads to multiple groups trying to solve the same problems with no sharing of learnings and ownership is interesting.
