Registered Representative (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – November 11, 2016
I loved my experience at this company. Contained some of my fondest memories of work experience. I was a registered representative and my sales territory was not limited except by state licensing requirements. This is a great company if you can get in!

Dot Net Developer (Current Employee) – Waltham, MA – February 6, 2014
Commonwealth Financial Network is one of the Biggest Financial Company in The World and the second largest privately held independent broker/dealer in the nation. Goal has been the same one that guides the best financial professional and indispensable to client and providing personal support, customized solution, time saving technology and Growth Oriented Environment. Portfolio Management System will help the financial Advisors to see the historical and the present data of the clients and predict the future market trends. It will also help them to manage the client data
Worked very closely with the advisor which allowed me to learn a lot about the finance industry in a very short amount of time. I was able to see a lot about the way clients and the advisor interacted, which was helpful in determining how to balance the advisor's schedule. This position was very conducive to my analytical and systematic way of doing business.
Associate (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – August 2, 2012
They bill themselves as "Anything But Common", and that's exactly what you get! Fun, laid back work environment. They do a great job at hiring really good people and that makes all the difference in the world. Unfortunately, due to the economy they are laying off a large number of employees right now.
fun work environment, bagels & beer on fridays, shorts & t-shirts all summer, the list goes on and on.
very low pay, prefer to hire recent grads over seasoned professionals.
Firewall Deployment Engineer (Current Employee) – Waltham, MA – May 29, 2012
Commonwealth is a broker/dealer with a great work environment. The company does great team-building and despite being a contract worker I was treated very well by the staffers and management here.
The office is staffed with competent people for the most part. Technologically the Shield project is an immense undertaking but we as engineers were given the freedom and flexibility to handle high-end consultation and network configuration on our own.
I truly enjoyed this job as it gave me a great chance to shine on my own merits as a technical worker.
The only downside that I have experienced with this job is that the company is so good that permanent positions rarely open up.
flexible schedule, work from home, lots of team-building and events
