Amazing firm
FX Trader (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 16, 2017
Few places will allow a young/developing trader the opportunity to take intelligent risk like Gelber does. Incredibly supportive of its traders, and an incredible amount of resources for a trader to learn from.

Mid-Tier Prop Shop with Plenty of Resources
Algorithmic Trader (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 28, 2016
I worked there for roughly eight years on both the discretionary and algorithmic sides. Apart from the natural insecurity of the proprietary trading industry, the company is great. They were always fair with me in my dealings and gave me ample opportunities to succeed.
Pros
Free lunches on a weekly basis, ping pong table (if this is why you are in trading reassess your career path)
Cons
With rare exceptions, you are largely expected to bring a strategy or form one yourself (typical for the industry though)
