I have MBP 16" which due to company policy is connected to another iCloud account then mine.

I recently bought my AirPods Pro and use it with my MBP 13.

Is there a possibility to connect AirPods which are associated with another iCloud account to MBP 16 which is associated with another iCloud without any issue?

You should be able to do as the above poster suggests without it impacting you 'home' experience of your AirPods with your personal devices.

If you do run into any issues, for example the AirPods don't automatically pair to your home devices after pairing them to your work device, I would suggest turning off Handoff on your work device (provided your admin settings allow this) in System Preferences > General > Allow Handoff and try again.

Handoff contains the iCloud Bluetooth sync mechanism. With it turned off your work device should be just like any other dumb Bluetooth device, and be able to coexist happily with your home setup.
