I've found that it is indeed wisest to avoid ID'ing whomever you work for currently by anything more specific than "pizza place" or "private firm".

A few years after leaving or being shown the door, sure, I'm willing to use a fake name like DaddyJim's Pizza...in that case, because I last worked there a *decade* ago. While I'm currently self-underemployed , I'm still not gonna give out the name of my business, and I'm even vague about describing what I do unless I am talking to a mod over a PM and I feel that it is significant.

Better safe than sorry, guys.
