    ... a happy working relationship-cum-friendship.

    Although we face obstacles at work, we are able to overcome them most of the time. My team and I also have a happy working relationship-cum-friendship.

    Would it be better if the second sentence is rephrased as:

    My team and I are on friendly terms and also have a happy working relationship.

    Thanks.

    Yes, I think that sounds clearer and more elegant.
