Off the top of my head:
Searching for John etc.
Monitoring all process that take over an hour of CPU time(assumes they're running on one of you systems, its always possible to farm out such a job).
Look for big NIS accesses(eg ypcat passwd) dependant on cracking all
passwords. Will fail if retreived in smaller groupings.
Apply alcohol to users and see if someone blabbers :-)
Social engineering is the only method IMHO if they have any inteligence.
