Below you'll see how some of our staff describe their Commonwealth experience—plus a selection of recent accolades we're particularly proud of.


  • A COMPUTERWORLD BEST PLACE TO WORK FOR TECHNOLOGY PROFESSIONALS

    We are honored to be recognized—for the eighth consecutive year—as one of Computerworld's Best Places to Work in IT among small companies (those with fewer than 1,000 employees). We value this award as recognition of our longstanding commitment to hiring the best and the brightest—the true innovators in their field—and to our success in empowering them to develop the technology solutions our advisors need to achieve their own version of success.



  • OUR SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR ON THE BOSTON GLOBE'S TOP 100 PLACES TO WORK LIST

    From 2008 to 2013, Commonwealth has received high marks from the Boston Globe as an innovative and progressive workplace—welcome confirmation that we continue to succeed in our mission to build a supportive environment where everyone can thrive.

    Commonwealth is one of just a handful of Massachusetts companies that has earned a spot every year since the Globe introduced its Top Places list. And we are the only firm to place among the top ten for all five years.

  • THE #1 TOP WORKPLACE IN SAN DIEGO

    2013 marks the first year Commonwealth was considered for recognition by the U-T (Union-Tribune) San Diego, and we proudly took the top spot. Commonwealth ranked the #1 Top Workplace among small companies in San Diego for 2013. We were also honored with a special award for ethics, an acknowledgment especially gratifying to a financial services firm.

  • COMMONWEALTH SHINES FROM SEA TO SEA

    From 2009 to 2013, Commonwealth has been recognized by the San Diego Business Journal as one of the area's top places to work. Notable in 2013, Commonwealth ranked the #1 Best Place to Work among large companies in 2013. That means Commonwealth has been named a top workplace on both East and West coasts. Companies who make the SDBJ's Best Places to Work list excel at fostering a positive work environment, along with attracting and retaining employees by promoting a unique corporate culture.
