I want to say that I work for Company A or represent it. I see 2 ways to express this:

  • I am from Company A
  • I am with Company A

Which way is correct one? What are other ways to say it?

Specifically, I am using it as username in e-mails to distinguish my e-mails from others that used simply name so recipent of my e-mail sees it in their inbox before opening e-mail.

You would say:

  • I am with Microsoft.
  • I work at Microsoft.

If you previously worked at Microsoft...

  • I came from Microsoft.
  • I worked at Microsoft.

Note: After seeing screenshot, I would definitely use at or with. I think it is best to use 'with' since it properly identifies yourself as an employee instead of being at their location.

    If you turned up at a persons door as part of a work-related process (checking their electricity meter, installing curtains, whatever) then 'I'm from Company A' would be perfectly valid.

    @Sam - maybe valid but 'I'm with Company A' is better and less ambiguous. Commented May 15, 2014 at 16:49
  • I am actually using it as my e-mail username like that: "John from Microsoft" so I appear like that in recipent inbox before they open e-mail. I guess that in that case "John with Microsoft" is still better?

    @RyeɃreḁd I agree that identifying yourself as with is more generally useful and less ambiguous. I was just pointing out a common use of the form you hadn't addressed. It is used frequently in the UK in the context I outlined.

  • @Sam - I agree it is common to hear, especially when someone does knock at your door to do work. Commented May 15, 2014 at 16:57
