Re: You get what you pay for...
I worked in Ireland for IBM and there was a lot of staff churn, but it was due to ancient code and conditions. Most stayed the minimum 2 years to get their pension contributions vested and then cleared off before their knowledge became obsolete.
Worst engineering practices and code maintenance I have every come across, technical debt was in the millions, lines of code that is.
It was all very trailing edge, minimum technical effort to stop customers from leaving.
Glad to be done with them.
