We have them too. They double as official identity photocards and stuff. Even I rate one, as a temp. Every visitor has one.

(Then again, the lock's magnetic, so you could push it open easily enough).

They work at a slight distance from the reader - so much so that I can hold my rucksack (containing said card) up to the reader and it'll let me in. This is by way of being humourous to the rest of the office.

Yes, I forsaw this and stuck mine in a side-rucksack-pocket this morning for that purpose :).

Ours are just plain white cards though (with a number hand-written on).

You can push open the doors held closed solely through the power of magnetism? I never really dared try.

One of our managers left his card in the building and got locked out. Pushed the door open and came in.

It's non-trivial, and only possible on stupid systems where it's solely magnetic and not mechanical at all, but it is possible.
