I doubt it... I've done contract work for companies like the one Andrew's
describing. Companies that are so disorganized or bureaucratically
stagnant that they can't get a contractor the needed resources won't
notice if you change a few access privileges on their server, as long as
the job gets done. Heck, most of them won't notice if you appropriate the
hardware you need and a company car, either.
