I had a boss, where I work now, with that attitude. I pretty much ignored him and good results covered my ass. He eventually took one step too far - and out the door with him.

But - what I really notice is that, unless you've only had one job and this is your experience, you've had surprisingly bad luck.

For the most part, I've been encouraged to come up with anything that would help out "the company" because they new it made both of us look good. Also, it gives that feeling of job satisfaction when your ideas are considered a contribution. It's is (or is to me) part of the pay - along with the money. Indeed, that's pretty much all I'm good for in that, if they just wanted a competent drone, they could easily do better

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
