We usually use these three prepositions when talking about jobs.
For and AtFor and at both have the same meaning.
"I work for HSBC."
"I work at HSBC."
These both show the name of the company.
"I work for a bank."
"I work at a bank."
These both show the type of company.
In"I work in a bank." - This shows the type of building where we work, not the type of business.
"I work in an office"
"I work in a shop."

He gave her a cheque ... a lot of money. The reason ... this meeting is to discuss the merger. The decrease ... profits is due to the bad market. There is a real demand ... qualified English teachers. We have seen a fall ... prices recently. The cause ... his problems is his wife. Did you do any damage ... the car? I think your attitude ... your employer is very bad indeed. The difference ... the two is very slight. He took a photograph ... his girlfriend. Do you have a good relationship ... your father? I was surprised ... his reaction to the problem. Did you send Simon an invitation ... the party? The connection ... the two victims was slight. The advantage ... having free time is that you can do anything you want with it.
