Review of CCSC

Administration (Former Employee)
Clearwater, FL

I worked at Commonwealth Capital Corp. full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people are the greatest and care about other employees.

ConsFINRA is tearing the place apart, causing everybody to either leave or be asked to go. The only people left are family members and people there to facilitate the regulators.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire people outside the family and give them real authority to do their job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Only miss my co-workers

Associate (Former Employee)
Clearwater, FL

I worked at Commonwealth Capital Corp. full-time for more than 3 years

ProsEmployees are friendly and care for each other. I still keep in touch with some of the employees "on the inside"

ConsNepotism is king; Managers are not allowed to manage. Employees are discouraged from talking to former employees;

Advice to Senior ManagementLet managers do their job and stop micro-managing; too many good employees have left disappointed that they were never allowed to work to their potential. Stop hiring family members. Appreciate your employees in order to stop the exodus. Stop lying to your employees; you will be surprised how many will stay if they are only given the chance to hear the truth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Some good, some bad

Receptionist (Former Employee)
Exton, PA

I worked at Commonwealth Capital Corp. full-time for more than a year

ProsFriendly atmosphere, nice people, good location.

ConsNot allowed to do certain tasks, not enough work to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more responsibility to certain members of staff. Don't look at the negative, look at the positive. Don't hire friends or family doesn't always work. Make sure the leaders know their job and how to do it. Training is essential in all jobs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Do more with less for less

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

I have been working at Commonwealth Capital Corp. full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVery challenging and demanding work environment, which helps keep employees sharp where they got to be.

ConsThe challenging and demanding work environment came from deep cuts in staff members and from not replacing those who have left because they either could not keep up with the pace or they felt unappreciated. This is not a sustainable long term plan. The loss of some talent has negatively impacted the bottom line, increased errors, and delayed necesssary progress.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot all employees are expandable. Need a retention program.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
