Dear all,

If you are an employee of Sony, Which would you more likely to say, "I work for Sony" or "I work with Sony"?

Also, is there any differences of nuance between them?

Thank you!

When I worked for XXX (my employer, the firm that paid my salary) I worked with many big companies in Prague.

An employee would work for Sony and a consultant or supplier, etc, would work with Sony.
