Lots of politics and consultant back-stabbing each other. Some abusive consultants. Every surgery, even uncomplicated appendicectomies, are done by consultants, so few opportunities for trainees to get proper theatre time beyond holding scopes and retractors. On-call consultant will come in out of hours for emergency surgery. Teaching is decent with a weekly timetable that generally happens. The consultants generally have lots of projects which they are willing to give out.
