Commonwealth Financial Network® Ranked a Best Place to Work in San Diego

SAN DIEGO, CA (August 7, 2015)—For the seventh consecutive year, Commonwealth Financial Network® has been ranked as one of the Best Places to Work in San Diego by the San Diego Business Journal. Of the 100 top workplaces for 2015, Commonwealth was honored as the third Best Place to Work among large companies, defined as those with 250–1,999 U.S. employees.

The annual survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in the San Diego area, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The 2015 Best Places to Work in San Diego list is composed of 100 companies from across the county that ranked highest in a two-part survey process. The first part is an evaluation of nominated companies on their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part is an employee survey to provide measurable feedback on the employee experience.

“We take great pride in the team that we have built at Commonwealth,” said John Rooney, managing principal of Commonwealth’s West Coast office. “To receive this award that recognizes and reaffirms our efforts is an honor.”

Rooney added, “Our people make all the difference—they live out our mission and vision, uphold our corporate values, and are a lifeline to the 1,600 financial advisors we support nationwide. Each employee plays a uniquely valuable role, and we are extremely pleased to see that they are as proud of Commonwealth as we are of them. As Commonwealth continues to expand its West Coast presence, we will maintain our supportive and engaging corporate environment while continuing to find new ways to be a Best Place to Work.”

To date, Commonwealth has been recognized 31 times as a Best Place to Work by top regional publications, including the Boston Globe, Boston Business Journal, San Diego Business Journal, and Computerworld.
