    Default "in a company" or "at a company"

    I have seen both prepositions - in and at - used with the word "company".

    Is it correct to use either of them?

    you can work at a company, you can have stock in a company and you can invest in a company, you can also look for stability in a company, and I guess you can meet a wonderful girl at a company you work

    in company = in(side) company.
    at company = you can be in the company or somewhere outside near the compcompany

    I see.
    Thank you.
    How about a parking lot?
    I guess a car will be IN a parking lot while we may agree to meet AT a parking lot? Am I right?

    at company - OK
    but in company?.. Shouldn't there be an article before the "company"?

    I think we need a little more idea of the contexts. Please provide examples.
