My experience tells me that any company whose business isn't selling software, doesn't care about the code.

I have learned the hard way that they don't care one single second about quality, only that it works the way required to support business, anything else is secondary.

In some sense it's true, but what's your point? Still in those companies, a better language/framework can go a long way in conducing better code quality, even if the boss gives zero shit about it.

The boss giving zero shit about it means not getting the approval IT requires to support anything you might want to do.

In such environments even root access is time limited to a few hours and requires a ticket asking for it with a reason that should be validated by the boss.
