If you think UVA is bad, just wait until you see how a law firm operates.
I've worked in firms, and at least in them older partners have some pushback authority against the IT guys in terms of keeping things usable. For example, I'm sure emails at firms still follow the FirstInitial/LastName@firm.com standard or some variant, rather than the YourInitials/RandomCharactersThatNoOneElseWillEverRememberSoThatHiringPartnerYouNetworkedAPhoneInformationalInterviewWithWillNeverBeAbleToContactYouHaHa1337Haxxorz@virginia.edu that our IT department prefers.
