I work for the Allegheny County Health Dept, and our parking lot can only accommodate roughly 1/3 of the employees who work in the building. It’s first come first serve.
My very first day coming to work on my bike after I bought it, I wasn’t sure where I could and could not park so I parked in a spot in the parking lot. I was told by the groundskeeper at the end of the day that I shouldn’t park my bike there because I can park it pretty much anywhere, so no reason to take a spot away from a car. Ever since then I’ve parked it in front of the loading dock entrance to the building and nobody has said anything to me about it since then.
