I’m not an attorney; that said, I believe the situation is this: you’re doing work for hire. That is, you are creating video for your employer. It’s my understanding of “work for hire” that the employer owns the work. Therefore, you have no inherent right to use the promotional videos you have created.
Your best bet would be to try to negotiate your name onto the videos as “editor,” or perhaps “producer,” or perhaps to refer to them as your work on your personal web site, with a link to the videos.
