How long have you been doing this? How many companies have you worked for?

In my experience, midsize companies that have been around for a while, always have legacy code bases that are a mess. Code that never runs (probably), applications and documentation that no one understands, code that is so fragile that developers fear to touch it, very odd data models, etc.

Larger companies can undertake the cost of complete rewrites not because they want to but rather because the mess which cannot piecemeal optimized anymore is impacting the bottom line right now and the road map calls for much more traffic.
