Is this word used to mean a company?
In can be used in that way.

It's not a direct synonym for the word "company". However, it could be used that way.
This is what I thought. The various definitions provided by OneLook bear this out.
Atomica says it is "a business organization" as a secondary definition. A business organization, to me, would be the same as a company.
