Monitoring internet?

I have a question for some of the gurus out there. My wife works at home for a large company. This company used to provide the internet connection for their work at home employees, until they found out that they could save a ton of money buy switching to Geico, er, making the employees provide their own internet.

A few things about this concern me. First, I had her complete a speed test from her work pc, while I performed the test on my personal pc. Using IE, her's was automatically routed through the company's home office, nowhere near where we are at. While mine did not. The results I got from the speed test were roughly 14Mbps on her work comp, 16Mbps on my personal comp. Both are hardwire, not WiFi. Her comp does have an Aruba router in between the pc and the main home router.

Next, the company has always monitored the internet that the employees used, websites, etc. Can they monitor anything on my network, other than her work pc? Can they see what I do on my own computer, iPad, laptop, etc? Or my daughter's even?
