Atos Origin / Cap GeminiHi guys, Wanted a quick take on these two. Good exit opps down the line? I know Cap Gemini is a solid player, but Atos Origin only recently made it 'big' after the Olympics and their handling of its tech delivery. 2 years 6 months
IBD Associates from non-banking backgrounds.So, I've been reading a few articles about how to break in to IBD as an Associate from non-Banking backgrounds.
