What lives under ou=CompanyA etc? User accounts? Something we do for
this to keep the DIT level shallow, is to keep all user accounts in
ou=Users and filter based on o=CompanyA which is an attribute on that
user entry. Then you can use slapo-dynlist to create company groups

Not sure what ACLs you've got or the overall function of your
directory server to advise a new DIT.
