    Company = Compañía or visita (whichever you like best)

    I work for a huge company = Yo trabajo para una gran compañía

    I'm having company over for dinner = Traigo compañía hoy para la cena.

    Compañía as in english has two meanings:

    -People that are with you (We are having company today.)

    -A business (My company has been improving gradually.)
