It depends on companies if they value what there employees bring to the table but I only see this in company's that have management that are "removed" by the people below them in the sense that they do not know what it is that there employees are doing or have unrealistic demands.

People like to have face to face interaction and it’s nice to know that sales positions will still be around for the long term
