I have to disagree with you, since I work for an IT consulting firm. With that being said, there's nothing that I do for my clients that they couldn't do for themselves by hiring admins with my experience. All of the procedures that I follow are documented in their internal documentation library and all of the work that I do is tracked in their internal ticketing system.

Our internal systems are hardened more exhaustively than any of our clients' systems because we can't afford to be the mechanism by which an attacker of one client is able to attack another client.

As an example, remote access into our network is via username, password, certificate, and otp.
