Submission + - To root or not to root?

anon writes: I'm a working at a big software outsourcing company as a Sr. Software Dev. I am new in this place and I found that most programmers, even me, don't have admin/root access to their own machine. To be honest, I could work without being root, but I feel somehow that I should make some fuzz about this and request full access. Why? The same reason that a convict in prison that must fight the toughest guy the first day even knowing that he will loose just to gain enough respect to have a better stay. What would you do if you were in my shoes?
