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

San Diego, CA (September 27, 2017)—For the ninth 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 2017, Commonwealth was honored as the fourth Best Place to Work among large companies, defined as those with 250—1,999 U.S. employees. The list was published today in a special supplement of the newspaper, as well as on

"It’s such an honor for our firm to be recognized as a Best Place to Work for the ninth straight year," said John Rooney, managing principal of Commonwealth’s West Coast office. "The people who staff our offices, in both San Diego and Waltham, Massachusetts, are the cream of the crop, to be sure. But we draw inspiration every day from the clients we serve—the 1,710 independent financial advisors who have chosen to affiliate with us."

Rooney continued, "Day after day, Commonwealth advisors work tirelessly to help investors pursue what’s important to them, whether it be saving for a dignified retirement, funding an education, or caring for an ailing family member. There’s a true esprit de corps among those of us in the home office as we strive to serve our advisors with the same care and personal attention they provide their own clients."

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 2017 Best Places to Work in San Diegolist 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.

To date, Commonwealth has been recognized 37 times as a Best Place to Work by top publications, including the Boston Globe, Boston Business Journal, San Diego Business Journal, and Computerworld.
