Communication. On PR, on reviews, on refactoring, on asking help. The manager of my team says that the difference between a senior and a junior/mid dev, is hardly technical, but on when and how they communicate.

All those things make for a subtle art that is only learn in teams and need to be adapted to each team member, which takes time. It's something that is harder to learn if you jump from project to project (although, there are ways).
