Do they have to know when you got promoted? I’d find a way to not list that detail on your resume and talk around it in conversations

Don’t you guys have individual breakdown of your titles at your firm and timeline? Even if I do a cumulative section with my current title, what if they ask me when I got promoted? In consulting its straightforward. 2 years to SA and then 3 years to Manager. In my case it was 4 years to Manager

Nobody will care

I’ve received several take home assignments that clearly use real company data or give a good indication to a company’s future strategy. If I wanted to be petty, assuming I haven’t signed any NDA or fine print promising secrecy, could I share this information publicly without facing legal repercussions? Obviously I know it’s ill advised and this is purely hypothetical, but just from a legal standpoint, would I get in trouble? Seems like an obvious way to get back at a company.

What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
