Something that can make the geekier types in an office feel jealous is the granting of superuser or administrator privileges on a desktop/laptop computer, a server or some other system. Some people would like to be able to install software, tweak laptop settings or create a new database at will. Obviously, some jobs, like IT administrator or desktop support, may require such rights. While official IT policies will often dictate who can have this kind of access, sometimes they’re granted based on dubious claims of need or just due to a friendship with the right IT staffer, which can cause jealousy. Remember, though, with superuser power comes superuser responsibilities.
