Perhaps I've been lucky, but my experience has been very different.
The engineering managers I've worked for have always taken the
attitude that I can do what I want as long as I deliver (useful,
high-quality) stuff when I said I would. They'd rather not have to
hold my hand if they can avoid it; they've got better things to do.

Of course, I let 'em know up front that this arrangement is what I
expect. Works for me, ;-)
