Re: Lone Wolf..
The flip side? I am the guy people hire when there is a mess they don't know how to clean up and my method of operation is to fix the problem, make the solution as idiot proof as possible(sanity check inputs, informative errors, auto generate configs when possible, leave multiple very obvious warnings about gotchas in places where the next admin will see them etc). then train as many people as possible on how to deal with my solution.
In my experience, the guy who walks in and thinks he is so above everyone else that nothing can be explained is either not as good as he thinks he is or he is posturing to overcome his own shortcomings.
I'm cleaning up after such a guy now. Aversion to package managers, shell scripts where web config would have been better, duplicate information in SQL tables, firewalled off several countries to compensate for the fragile state of his security etc.. If I change anything it often has unexpected consequences.
