I work in surgery so no carrying at work for me. I leave the pistol and holster in my truck while at work. Holster in console and pistol locked in safe.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
It is a violation of Federal law to try and bring it in to work. I could be fired for bringing it into the normal parking lot. State law allows me to leave it in my car for some outer lots if I choose. We have PLENTY of armed security here, so the only reason to carry is for the trip back and forth, and to have it available should I go somewhere before or after work.

I can't carry on company property or within the building, so I park off property.
Funny thing! I retired last year and was not allowed to carry on Company Property while I worked for the Company, but we were allowed to have our weapons locked up in our cars in the parking lot. Now that I don't work for them, I can carry on the Company Property. They cannot stop me as it's a Public Building and is placarded to "No Unlicensed Handguns Allowed on Company Property". But, it excludes Employees from carrying even if they have a CCW Permit. My former Co Workers get a kick out of me carrying when I stop in to say hi. I have to say my Boss was a little fearful I would go Postal on them right after I retired. But he got comfortable with it once I did it a few times. He eventually found it funny that I could and he couldn't.
Back when I was working for them I kept my S&W 45 in a mounted holster in my Pickup. When I got to work I would remove my backup 380 Colt and lock it in the safe under the seat, but would keep its holster on my belt. One day I got tired of the cheapo cell phone holster I had to carry Company Phone in, so I used my little pistol holster as a phone holster. After a period of time I noticed some of my Co Workers had adopted the practice.
It's commonplace there now.
Carry to work, lock it up in my truck when I get there. I'm pretty sure if I ask it will be against company policy, so I wont ask.
I have had 2 holsters mailed to me here at work (I dont like when UPS leaves boxes on my front porch all day long). No one questioned me about it.
holster comes off with the gun no matter what

To those of you who lock up your weapons in a car safe...... do you feel ok with a safe that only has a cable? Does anyone bolt or sheet metal screw theirs down to the floor? Thoughts?
I'm not allowed to bring my weapon inside the building.

My company's policy is no firearms in the workplace, no firearms to be transported anywhere by an employee while that employee is conducting company business, and no firearms on 'the premises' which is explained to mean owned or leased properties including parking areas.
The company conducts business in every state and in just about every country in the world, as well, but is headquartered in MA.

My ex employer is the only place I have ever seen a legal 30-06 sign. The parking lot was guarded so you could not even have your carry gun in the car. I sometimes honored that rule some times not. Retirement is wonderful!
I can't carry at work (Federal law), but our compound is on city property, so I can leave it in my car. I usually leave it in the glovebox, holster and all.
Honestly, though, I don't usually take it with me to work because if I have to drive over to the other office, it's on Federal property so I can't even have the gun in my car (there is some exception to that rule, but generally it's a big no.)
Knowing is half the battle.
