According to Magmat it's wrong to say:
Each/Every company has similar problems (Comparison requires Plural)
One should use:
All companies have similar problems

Could anybody explain this to me? I don't see a real comparison...

some, any, none, all, most/more, many - are SANAM pronouns. This means that they can be plural or singular, depending if they follow plural on singular noun.
Thus:

"All companies have similar problems" (companies and have - -plural)

For each/every:

Two examples that need to be memoried:

Three cats, each of which is black (singular)
Three cats, each are black (plural)

According to this your example is right:

Each/Every company has similar problems (has should be singular)
