In my career I have two different instances of working for a company which was then acquired by another company. In both cases the acquirer was a larger, known-name company which I'd like to list on my resume.
However at the same time, in one of these cases 80% of my time was spent at the pre-acquisition company, and it would feel wrong to me to claim that I worked for Big Company for the entire 4 year period.
Is there an accepted way to represent this on your CV? I'm nervous that if I attempt to enter something like "Small Company Name / Big Company Name" in the
Company or Employer field that this might mess with string matching if I chose to hide my resume from either of these employers.
Or should I list these companies as distinct entries in my CV?
How are other people handling this scenario in their own CV?
