Its likely, however, that most companies will not allow you to put
your name on *their* book.

** A company I worked for had the writers' names on for a while, then
removed them.

The company's stated reason was fear of legal complications that
might arise after the writer left the company.

I was glad to see the names go, but for another reason: when a
number of writers work simultaneously or serially on a book, it's
hard to allocate billing in a way that will seem fair to everyone.
(Not to mention crediting high-added-value editors like, er, oneself.)
