Running two AVs AT THE SAME TIME can be a problem and certainly will slow down your computer and probably cause application conflicts. However, you may have two AVs on your hard drive and run only one of them at a time; be aware, though, that one may be "confused" by the other's virus vault or virus definitions, so you will have to carefully watch the paths for anything to be quarantined or deleted.
You main effort should obviously get your company to upgrade to the latest version, and to make sure that whatever version they use is capable of getting the latest definition updates.
Additionally, you should elect to have at least two anti-spyware applications on your home computer, in addition to a AV.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
