Like, I'm sure how you've seen some devs just want to be left alone and their silo, which works on a junior and maybe mid-level on smaller teams. But that doesn't work for senior level and so on.
I'd say that works in bigger companies if they do specialised work.
I'm in a small team now, with two programmers and sometimes a third for some additional expertise.
We can't afford a lone wolf right now.
It would mess up the team dynamic and work flow too much.
I simply don't have the work where someone can work alone for longer periods of time.
Programming complex systems with more than one person should always be a team effort, not a two-(or-more)-people-apart effort.

I'm keeping my employee informed, so he knows about upcoming deadlines and why they're important.
Also, if a deadline is not important I tell him too.
No sweat if an arbitrary deadline is a few days late.
I'm an employer, but also still very much a programmer Big Grin | :-D
