Metro reporter Lisa Chiu has an article in today’s paper about how Microsoft is expanding its valet parking service for employees. The parking could be considered a perk, but the service is mainly to try and address the lack of space in Microsoft’s parking garages. I’d rather park my own car, but it sounds like that would mean a lot of driving around and around searching for a spot.
According to Microsoft test engineer Tim Hogg, quoted in the article:
“If you show up after 9:30 in the morning, there is nowhere to park. It’s been a great work-around for the problems at this place – for every car space there is, there are 1.5 cars that want to park.”
