No employer will be impressed by "but I like to do it my way"

Sadly in academics this isn't completely true. There's definitely a prizing of "Maverick independence" among some scientists. There's some place for it - after all, once you are a faculty member, you answer basically to yourself and your granting agency and you rise or fall based in a large part on your ability to work independently. I don't agree with this in practice - and thankfully neither does my adviser - we ALL are subservient to our awesome Lab Manager, including my adviser. :) Plus, it's SO important to future productivity to be able to work well with collaborators and students. But I could see a less-awesome PI think it's a good thing for a grad student or postdoc to show "independence" by doing what HE wants when HE wants to.
