You would say, for example, "I work for IBM." In some cases, where the article is part of the name, you might say "I work for the Microflange Corporation," but it would be more usual to just say "I work for Microflange." Otherwise, "I work for the phone company," where "phone company" is used generically.I know that no article goes right before a company name. But as that sentence is written: I work for (a/the) company XY..with the word company as well as the name of the company, I think some article should be used....or simply the word "company" should be left out and only "I work for XY" should be used instead?
You wrote "I work for a/the company XY.? (XY = the name of the company)" That construction looks strange to me whether it includes an article or not. I would include the definite article but also rearrange the sentence thus "I work for the General Electric company."Hello, which article (definite or indefinite) should go before "company" in this sentence: I work for a/the company XY.? (XY = the name of the company) I know that it is possible to say "I work for XY company", too. But how is it in that first sentence? Or are there any other better options? And is it normal to say it this way at all?
Thanks in advance
