My place, which isn't short of a bob or two...

... still hasn't come up with a toolchain, still hasn't coughed up for decent static code analysis software an has no interest in addressing the huge technical debt they have.

Some people just go with it and use vi, others tear their hair out trying to get a local IDE set up and working with servers running ancient gcc, gdb, and firewall rules which work against you.

They don't particularly want to automate stuff as it might mean fewer hours to charge end clients.

There's only money because it's a market with a lot of money and few competitors and a lot of regulation which limits innovation. If it weren't for that, this place would have sank years ago.
