All Jobs Tend To Face Time

I've noticed that to some extent all jobs tend to face time. Sure, there are exceptions but there is a tendency.

When you hear things like, "90% of the job is just showing up", there might be a clue there.

Large organizations seem to tend to not trust their employees and in return force a culture of face time because that is the simplest way to hold someone accountable.

"Well, at least he/she shows up" keeps many people employeed.

It's the 10% that I'm interested in. But, is it worth the effort in environments what have lowered the bar of accountability to just existing?
