I worked at Gelber Group full-time (More than a year)
It has a really laid back atmosphere, pretty good transparency with the accounts, fairly competitive split. also an added bonus of pizza on wednesdays.
Risk managers aren't very knowledgeable and have risk guidelines that basically do their jobs for them.
Advice to Management
Get better risk mangers that know what is going on within the various products. Someone that has traded successfully in the past would be ideal.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gelber Group.
After reviewing my resume, I was contacted by a trader on the phone for a behavioral interview. I heard back a few days later and was assigned a quantitative assessment, with two weeks to complete it. I was contacted more than a month after having sent my deliverables, for a follow up technical interview with a quantitative trader. Everything went well and I received an offer to join their summer internship program early January.
