Dont work here unless you can get nothing else
Admin (Former Employee) –  Weybridge, Surrey2 May 2019
Watch your back in this place. A never ending series of redundancy, pay freezes for years at a time and senior management who dont listen to staff (NB staff surveys are not anonymous, so its the Saddam Hussain approach to gaining feedback).

The grounds look like a rubbish tip, the whole place feels run down and tired and there is a revolving door of staff
Pros
Friendly & Conscientious Staff
Cons
Useless Senior Management

Worst College
Lecturer (Former Employee) –  Brooklands College7 October 2018
The college needs a whole new senior leadership team. One that is willing to listen to staff and their ideas, that want to make money for the college and make is a pleasant place to work.
Everyone is so much under pressure, always stressed out, and the management just don't care a bit.
The College is going down the pan, which is such a shame, as with the right senior leadership team in place the college could be turned around.
Would I recommend friends or family to work at the College, definitely not.
Pros
Free parking
Cons
Salary, stress

Brooklands does NOT value its staff
Administration Officer (Former Employee) –  Weybridge, Surrey14 September 2018
The college is poorly run by its Principal, 4 Vice Principals, numerous Directors and Managers.

The college debt is escalating out of control due to bad decisions at its over bloated managerial level but it's the staff and students who ultimately suffer.

The support staff are undervalued/under payed and are under constant risk of redundancy which seems to happens every year!

Staff moral is at an all time low and Brooklands College is an employer to avoid at all costs. I would have given zero stars as a review but was unable to.
Pros
Car parking
Cons
To many to list

staff work above and beyond their remit to deliver good outcomes for students
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Surrey26 June 2018
Strength of this organisation lies with the staff who work above and beyond their remit, with very limited resources, to deliver the best outcomes for students. Unfortunately, management is weak leading to lack of confidence. Repeated re-structures cause lack of security and severe staff shortages.
Pros
supportive colleagues
Cons
lack of resources

Excellent teaching staff; poor management
Lecturer (Former Employee) –  Surrey19 October 2016
Tutors are friendly and with good experience but there is a lack of support, respect and honesty from certain parts of management which has led to a demoralised atmosphere and a "them and us" environment.
Cons
Very little appreciation of staff.
