    You could always park just off of company property as well.

    Park off property where I used to work and you'll return to a stripped car. Not always an option.

    Be cautious on Brass Magnet's advice. Yes, it is good, but should a fellow employee find out that you have a weapon in your vehicle, even parked off company property, there are some companies that will fire you. This, too, depends on what state you are in. Some states allow you to be fired "for any or no reason, with or without notice."
    Unless you have an employment contract, you are generally considered an "employee at will." As such, subject to the will of the employer.

    If your life is more important than your paycheck and the material things that it provides, then QUIT !

    Stainless....kinda hard to do in these times. My life is valuable to me and I took chances being armed at work and fought tooth and nail with my company.

    I told them my kids had orders to sue and they finally gave in somewhat. Not enough, but I retired before fighting them to the finish.

    The last job I had (I'm retired since last September) had a policy of no firearms or other weapons on the premises. Every day I carried a Spiderco clip-on pocket knife to work and most people knew it. What they didn't know was that in my vehicle was also one of my carry guns. One of the company security/facility people (not a rent-a-cop) told me that they knew that 50% (his figure) of the cars in the parking lots had guns in them so they just looked the other way.

    You take a risk and it's your prerogative to decide if that risk is worth it to you.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Nah, just specifying that security was company-hired, not contracted out.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
