Dealing with an absolute toxic work environment. I unfortunately (or fortunately) landed up in an org where there was always a massive fire raging on, and I was handed out "support" of the system (even when I knew 0 of the codebase). Every day felt as if I was meat visiting a butcher shop.

It took me some time to deal with it (and the depression accompanying it), and with the help of a great mentor and a supportive family, I managed to turn it around and left for a better workplace.

I hope this qualifies as a challenging work scenario.
