Cabinet members often state that they serve at the pleasure of the President, and the President can fire any Cabinet member at any time, but can the Cabinet members legally and constitutionally ignore anything that the President tells them to do?

It seems that the implication is, that the President nominates someone who will do what the President wants them to do, even if the President can't actually order them to do anything.
