using one userid and password for the 5 companies I have set up in Quickbooks 2016 Desktop

I have my self and 1 user for quickbooks desktop.  I"m the admin.  so I now have to use different passwords within my quickbooks to access each company.  so does my employee, he has 

to use his own different passwords for the 5 companies.   We both use File, Open previous company, to access a company.....  There has to be a better way to do it.

I believe from security perspective and audit log, every company file must have a password for every user login. You should consider switching to Accountant edition to run 2 company files in the same time.
