Most resumes and CVs that I've seen simply state the name of the company, title or position and dates of employment. I've always done the same. However, I've heard people express, in one way or another, that some companies are 'worth more' on a resume.
For example, in the software industry big names like Google/Microsoft/etc...seem to be preferred over a lessor known, generic software company, all other things being equal.
This is particularly relevant when considering a change in industry. Let's consider a software developer who worked in the gaming industry and would like to continue being a software developer outside of the gaming industry. The interviewer/hiring manager might not know anything about the gaming industry, they wouldn't recognize names like 'Valve', 'Blizzard' or 'Bethesda', but inside the gaming industry everyone would.
There are lots of industries where I feel like, if you didn't have experience in them, you wouldn't know a well respected company from a generic company from a notoriously bad one.
Is it advisable to make statements about the company you worked for? I'm considering things like:
'Forbes #1 Best Company To Work For In XYZ'
'Inc. 5000's #1234 Fastest Growing Private Companies'
Or would it just be viewed as meaningless fluff?
