The Importance Of Code Maintainability & Readability

I am fed up with going to new companies where the focus has been on; get it out the door.
Now that the product is out there and maintenance and extending is time-consuming (outside of what it should be) because people have not made their code readable or written in a maintainable way. What do you all think?

One thing to keep in mind is that software is new to many industries and companies. Most approach it as an assembly line. Not knowing that this is highly creative work.

Knowing this, we must either jump ship every time a codebase turns into hell or learn how to manage such beasts and improve it over time. I prefer to improve things over time.
