I'm a network admin for a company that does a lot of managed hosting (from letting the customer use/have a VM on our host machines to multi-hardware environments), colocation, shared web sites (ok, here's your little site and FTP area, have fun), and ISP type work.
Though the people outside the specifically technical roles (ie sales, billing, etc) have no clue about this stuff. Sales knows sort of what each product is, but nowhere near grasping how it works or what the limitations are.
Our customers are a mixed bag - some know a lot, some know nothing. Generally, the ones in the middle (that know some, but not too much) are the best, because they'll accept that the service was fixed with a restart (instead of insisting there must be some issue, or the all time classic "how do we know this won't happen again?" ), and they don't ask too many stupid questions along the way.

Well they do need to be tested for proper working order.
I can't speak of any secrets at my current full time job. I started two weeks worth of training on Monday. Even after I can't legally spill any beans.

The secret? Those $20+ entrees you're eating cost us maybe $5 to make. And if you ask us to change something about it, we make fun of you.
And if you ask for anything cooked well done, you get the worst/junkiest piece of meat we have.
...Yeah, not huge secrets.
We put our glass to the sky and lift up. And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya. So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us. And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya...
