I recommend you create records in the proper company.

It is too easy to accidentally create something in the wrong company if you don't enforce this best practice.  The company field isn't always shown on the record,or is sometimes on a tab that the user may not remember to click.  

It is easier to train users to set the company in the preferences dialog, then enter records.
