I assume that companies use Jenkins to "own" the service, while many CI/CD services are cloud based. These services are also available as on-premise but even there they are not equal. They have different license models, pricing models and openness philosophy. Jenkins is free, easy to setup, open and has proven for a long time to be a solid solution for custom CI/CD. Unless your are working entirely open-source this is still the way to go for many companies.

I like and use Jenkins.
I read Florent's question as "why you're not using Jenkins pipelines"? I.e. why freestyle job and on pipeline job?

You can build pipelines using Jenkins. I work for a huge enterprise and we have pipelines for all software releases built on top of Jenkins. You'll be surprised with the things you can do with Jenkins.
