    I work with the company You don't work for the company, but you and the company work together to accomplish something.

    That's my interpretation.

    Put periods at the end your sentences.

    In one of the threads I came across similar sentences
    'I am employed in a company'.

    In this context I would like to know whether the usage of 'with ' is correct.

    What sentence with "with" are you asking about now?

    If you mean 'I am employed with a company.', I would not say that.
    Some people may say that or say 'I am employed in a company.', but I would say 'I am employed by a company.'

    You can be employed by a company but work at home. To me, '...in a company...' suggests that you work somewhere in company owned property.

    I request the senior member confirm whether

    I am with x company.
    I am employed in x company.

    can we say with = employed in
    Can I say

    I am employed by a company (for hire, for short term assignment, contractual jobs etc.)

    If you are employed full time can I use by
