Welcome to the forum, Shawn.

You're not asking too much on either count.

Water should never collect on any part of the shower floor. Every part of the floor should gradually slope to the drain at a rate of at least 1/4" per running foot. There's really no reason for it to be otherwise.

Bullnose tile are rarely wide enough to make up the depth of a standard niche. But that's no excuse to make up the rest of it with a wide caulk or grout joint. There's also no excuse for the uneven tile around the niche.

It's all just sloppy work. If it's indicative of the rest of the shower, I would be worried about the waterproofing layer and how the tile are bonded.

The top ten reasons to procrastinate:
