Comfortable to work but lack collaboration

Comfortable to work but lack collaboration, many things can be learned but it is too difficult to get the tutor from the senior, to be self-reliant sometimes at discrimination & rivalry between senior and new employees.

The most enjoyable part of this job would be the great pay and employee benefits.
