Any idea on how bad the bench is at EY?

I have a subjective question where I see there is no right or wrong answer to it. pour your thoughts here.

Is it fine if someone does not mention about a particular project that did not add value to their profile (say currently that person working as a dev but got a support role in the past so they had to hide) or a time period where they had been on bench but did not mention that in their resume? And why in your opinion is it fine or not fine?

So I recently just accepted an offer from Accenture. I told them I did not have a non-compete because my coworkers who have left did not have one and returned to work at the same clients with their new firms. Turns out when I was promoted at the end of last year and resigned my employee agreement, there was a very ambiguous non-compete in the document that I signed. My question is what are the ramifications of letting Accenture know now that I have accepted my offer.
