On a large project, its unlikely you have had to deal with:

  • Taxes
  • Finances (on a company wide scale, property, accounting, maintenance, infrastructure)
  • Insurance (Company liability, employee insurance etc)
  • HR (pensions, pay, legal issues)
  • Any advertising or PR that may be needed
  • Managing company relations
  • More im not thinking of

Nothing is too bad and there is loads of advice out there, but it's rarely as simple as just replicating what you do when working for someone else.

Insurance, HR, taxes and finance are definitely the empty areas that a software engineering role does not prepare people for. Thanks for the list!
