Do you always use an indefinite article in sentences that begin with "what"? In English it is usual to say E.g. What an idiot... What an jerk... What an asshole... But what about these What...

Do you always use an indefinite article in sentences that begin with "what"?

In English it is usual to say

E.g.

What an idiot...
What an jerk...
What an asshole...

But what about these

What (a) company do you work for?
Which (a) colour do you like the most?

I feel like it is better to drop the "a" in the two sentences above.

Can I?
