Discussion on: Technical debt so bad I quit my job

One of my previous lives I worked for a national loyalty company steeped in a decade of tech debt. Someone quit every fortnight, to the point where people purchased stamps or stickers for all the leaving cards.

For a solid year they worked to phase off of old tech and promised to never return to the days of so much tech debt.

However they had cheaped out on the new stuff and most of the platform never passed the MVP stage before it started to crumble.

New management changed all of our contracts to reflect that we would support MVP systems.

They still have super high attrition and most of their projects are in development hell.
