    I worked at Gelber Group full-time (More than 3 years)


    Gelber Group truly understands the value of the individual. For people who are motivated, intelligent, and open-minded, Gelber gives great opportunities for individual advancement while working in a collaborative culture. Unlike some firms that mandate "one mind and one vision", Gelber allows individualism while encouraging a culture of helping one another. This is truly a rare gem in the proprietary trading world.


    They are loyal to a fault, allowing sub-par employees to hang on longer than they really should. It's great if you are one of those people and just need extra time to find your way, but can be a challenge if you rely on one of them to get your job done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a level of flexibility and don't let certain individuals or departments to become a roadblock to other's success.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gelber Group (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.


    I applied online through the Gelber Group website. I was contacted by email around two months after I applied. They arranged a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty short, around 25 minutes. I did not hear back from them for a few weeks, so I am assuming I did not make it to the next round.
