Commonwealth Financial Network was ranked the best place for women to work by the Boston Globe. The firm ranked highest in opportunities for women in the United States, based on responses from women in management positions at the firm, according to the Globe. Commonwealth also ranked highest in the diversity category.
Additionally, Commonwealth was ranked the second best midsize company to work for in Massachusetts. It was beaten out by Hill Holliday, an advertising and marketing firm in Boston.
“There is no confusion that our employees are our most valuable asset,” Wayne Bloom (left), Commonwealth's CEO, said in a press release. “We’ve always understood that in order to provide indispensable service to our advisors, we would first have to create a satisfying and engaging environment for our staff.”
In October, J.D. Power and Associates ranked Commonwealth, based in Boston, highest in independent advisor satisfaction among broker-dealers.
