I work in/at an investment firm.

Is there any difference between using in and at in this sentence?


1 Answer 1


A regular employee would most likely say, "I work at an investment firm." If using the company name, it would be more common to say, "I work for Shearson/Lehman." Other variations: "I work with Dan at McDonald's." "I with with an investment group." "I'm a partner at Radle, Harrison and Liberfarb." "I am employed by Tingstofel and Flanders."

The differences are very subtle.
