Depends on the project. Some are well known and communicated across the company, and would not be an issue to discuss. Some are very confidential, even within the company a handful of people might know about them (e.g. DDs, strategic assessments/potential divestments of certain BUs etc) and they shouldn’t be disclosed.

Let's say you apply online to work at McDonalds. They invite you to interview. Years ago, you happened to be on a project where McD's was the client. Is it appropriate to mention that experience during the interview?

I would think so. They should have that info already, unless there's some operational separation.
