Are publishers still hiring writers in person (individually)? How do they negotiate fees?

I see writers sites all over the place, each offering a different way of accessing publishers or matching up to publishers, and different types and levels of payments. Has this replaced the system of a writer approaching publishers with an offer?

    I did a little research yesterday that bears this out. None of the big publishing houses accept manuscripts anymore. Not only do they all go through agents, but they also will not recommend agents. I was just wondering if it was worth it to even try.
