I would think that you, in fact, cannot exchange info absolutely freely 
with other scientists since you do work for a company.  How would the 
company react to you spilling trade secrets or providing information to 
others, and potential competitors, before they apply for a patent on some 
discovery or procedure?  You are free to communicate insofar as it 
doesn't run counter to the interests of your employer.
