You can make a full agenda view and then press "/ TAB work RET" to
filter this view down to entries to have the tag or file tag :work:  
THis is what Bernt and Matt have described.  So the filtering
happens *after* the full was created.

You seem to be saying that all the files you want to look at look like
workaaa.org workbbb.org?

Then you can use another trick of Matt which he describes in his
tutorial about agenda custom commands:

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
       '(("W" "Work agenda" agenda ""
          ((org-agenda-files (file-expand-wildcards "~/org/ 
         ;; ...other commands here

This one works by temporarily only looking at these specific files,  
by file name.

There are more than one ways to do things here.
