And typically companies have processes and policies around admin rights that you get fired for ignoring.

Ah yes, the old "I'll fire THE BOSS because I'm IT and therefore bigger than he is. Hello Jake, never knew you to post AC! :)

If a C-type REALLY needs admin access then it's via a separate admin login with no profile / email etc so that you just use it when admin is actually required.

"What? I don't want to bother with that. My time is important, I don't want to stuff around logging out and back in. Give me permanent admin access or you're fired and I'll get someone in who can do what they're told!". Or words to that effect.

As I said, good luck with staying in business...

Many of these companies still seem to be surviving quite well actually. YOU, however, would be out at best at the next contract renewal if you don't let some of these people get their own way.
