Cambridge recognized by The Des Moines Register for eighth consecutive year

September 17, 2018

FAIRFIELD, IA – September 17, 2018 – Cambridge is pleased to announce it has been recognized as a top workplace in Iowa for the eighth consecutive year. Sponsored by The Des Moines Register, the 2018 Top Workplaces in Iowa award listed Cambridge as the seventh best workplace for large companies that employ over 500 associates.

Cambridge would like to thank their more than 800 associates for this honor as it represents a unified vote of satisfaction and confidence. This achievement is made possible by the hard work and dedication of all Cambridge associates and the key role they play in supporting financial professionals serving the best interests of their investing clients. Cambridge is in the service business, and this level of appreciation from those we serve is among our most important achievements. The Top Workplace in Iowa recognition follows the recent honor of 2018 Broker-Dealer of the Year by Investment Advisor magazine, an honor Cambridge has received eleven times.1

As one of the largest and fastest growing companies in southeast Iowa, Cambridge draws a majority of its associates from a six-county region and is home to associates from an additional 14 counties across the state as well as nationally. 

The Top Workplaces in Iowa recognition is determined by associate feedback through an anonymous survey conducted by Energage, an independent research company. The Top Workplaces in Iowa associate survey focused on three critical aspects of the workplace, including: engagement – an assessment of how associates feel about working at the company overall, organizational health – an assessment of the fundamentals of the company, and satisfaction – an assessment of the day-to-day job.
