i was wondering if csm leigions have companys within them like the chapers serving the false eperor. I was wondering this for fluff purposes.
CSM legions usualy aren't very organised. At this point they've basicly degenerated into mobs lead by powerful Lords and Daemons.The Imperial Marines are organised according to the codex,which wasn't written untill afetr the traitors fled to the Eye of Terror.

Some of the more organized legions ( IW, AL ) will still mostly resembe their pre-heresy structure whie other ike the WE for example are nothing but small warbands.
The chaos legions are very disorganised, as they have no real rules to follow. All they want to do is kill things for the dark gods.
Some legions are more organised such as the warhosts of the iron warriors, but generally they only resemble anything remotely as organised as the imperium is during a black crusade.
Not all Chaos Legion are disorganised, the proof of this are the great black crusade. If you take the Black Legion as an exemple, it is one of the most organised chaos space marine army with all the cults working together toward the fall of the empire of man. How can you make war with thousands and thousands of Marines workshipping different gods (who are at war with each others most of the time too) if you're disorganised.
Also some heretic chapters are organised into pirate chapters, they kept their SM structure but they workship chaos as a whole, like the ones that joined the dark side after the Horus Heresy (here the red corsairs come in mind).
Of course Khorne Berserkers are only warbands at the service of powerful warlord but if you think about the Thousand Sons who's master is the Lord of Change who send them throughout the galaxy to accomplish his schemes... That's organised to me.
And yes, most of the chapters coming from the horus heresy have a structure similar to the Space Marine one even if some almost have none. That's what make the chaos so fun to play, you can have a structure as rigid as the Iron Warriors or a structure totally loose with only one word to scream throughout the battle: Charge!!!!!
Just look at the name...
