    Current Employee - Theatres in London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Theatres in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Royal Free NHS full-time

    Pros

    good central london location

    Cons

    operating theatres taken over by the majority philippino members of staff who do not integrate with other races and don't want to.
    The philippino members of staff don't help new members unless you are a philippino. Work environment is very toxic where you can feel that philipinos are sticking together and are against every other race. some of them are openly are racist and homophobic which i find disgusting.

    Advice to Management

    The management knows exactly whats going on inside the theatres but is not doing anything about it.

    I have been working at Royal Free NHS full-time

    Pros

    - nice team environment
    - working closely with nurses/doctors/patients means the job is never dull

    Cons

    - very demanding and busy work environment (if you don't like that)

    Advice to Management

    - be more positive to clerical staff when they are doing well at their job. Sometimes their hard work can be overlooked and the focus is on what needs to be done without any gratitude to what has been done
