    alongside his brothers

    1) He was a manager in our division alongside his two brothers.
    2) He was a manager in our division alongside with his two brothers.
    3) He was a manager in our division with his two brothers.

    The sentences are supposed to mean that he was a manager in our unit and his brothers were also in our unit.
    I think the first two sentences imply that his two brothers were managers as well.
    I don't think '3' works at all.

    Is that correct?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: alongside his brothers

    Yes.

    But 2) is not correct - you can't use 'alongside with'.
