How does Gelber Group rank in relation to other prop trading shops?

Is anyone familiar with their new hire grad program and Is this a good place to be straight out of college?

Would take probably 90% of prop shop offers over S&T no matter what if you want to trade for sure. To basket the firms into 4 categories and not get too crazy I'd say like: 

S: CitSec, Jane, HRT, Jump

T1: Optiver, DRW, SIG, IMC

T2: Akuna, CTC, Maven Securities, Flow Traders

T3: Belvedere, Transmarket, Gelber, Valkyrie, Wolverine, Peak6

Tons of other firms too so I might've missed some big ones. But I would take all of these over an S&T role at a bank unless comp was significantly below market which from what I've heard the only one below 100K might be Valkyrie.

No idea about CTC or TMG but agree with this ranking. if you are really interested in trading, should choose them over S&T. Maybe hesitate a bit for T3's if you get the offer from strong trading desks in BB(ex: credit in Nomura HK, EQD in GS UK, etc)
