Not my experience, since at past few jobs I've worked at startups doing cutting-edge work, with less than 40 hours a week, and with lots of flexibility. And at this point I'm definitely a pragmatist.
That happens, but very rare. Also, the “definitely a pragmatist” could not be granted much flexibility: 100% pragmatist will just stop working under such conditions.
