What are the Best and Worst things about your job?

Best

Second-year graduate running my own projects with own clients. Trusted to go out and meet clients alone. Great team. Loads of opportunities to progress my learning.

Worst

We get the more difficult clients - projects which aren't automatically a 100% fundable and profitable. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, though, as it means we work harder to use our initiative to find solutions to make things work.
