My husband and I both worked for the same company (even same manager) but he decided to move back to the east coast shortly before we started dating... We talked on a regular basis and we developed into a relationship. After 3 months of long distance (daily phone, 1-2 month visits), we decided to move one of us.. well me. Took another 2 months to work out the work related issues, find a place and move. We got engaged about 8 months after moving in together and married a few months after that.
It was a bit painful but we did talk a lot through work and at night as well as our visits. We will be married 3 years this year.
