Dying to get out of this place.

Don't list them. They may not know they're BS, but the real estate on your resume could probably be put to better use.

If you have space in resume that's cool but feel free to mention them in the interview. Every company has some sort of internal employee appreciation programs. So I'm sure they'll understand. Or just say you were given best talent in project award or Some kind of twist to that :)

Well now they do!!!!
